P0A36 DescriptionThe motor temperature sensor No. 2 detects the temperature of the transaxle fluid. The resistance of the thermistor installed in the motor temperature sensor No. 2 varies with the changes in the transaxle fluid temperature. The construction in the motor temperature sensor No. 2 and how it is connected to the HV control ECU are the same as those of the motor temperature sensor No. 1.
Based on the signal provided by the motor temperature sensor No. 2, the HV control ECU limits the load to prevent the motor from overheating. Furthermore, the HV control ECU checks the motor temperature sensor No. 2 for a wiring malfunction and the sensor for malfunction.
