Mastering P0113 Toyota Problem: Understanding the IAT Sensor and Air Filter Methods

This P0113 repairing video is dedicated to Toyota’s drivers. If your Toyota is showing a P0113 error code, this video will provide you with two practical solutions to fix the error at home.

First, use the Zeus app to scan your vehicle and see the error code P0113. This code indicates that the engine control module has determined that the intake air temperature sensor has an open circuit in the sensor circuit.

Method A: The IAT Sensor

The IAT sensor could be on the throttle body attached right to the intake manifold. Carefully remove the IAT sensor from the vehicle and visually inspect it to make sure it hasn’t been contaminated by a leak from another engine component. Use a multimeter to test the IAT sensor and refer to your owner’s manual to see the specific IAT sensor resistance range for your vehicle. If you do not get a reading, this indicates that the IAT sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Method B: The Air Filter

Locate the air filter housing, usually a black plastic box. Disengage the cover to expose the air filter, being careful not to dislodge any hoses or stretch any wiring. Remove the old filter carefully and clean out any excess dirt or debris inside the compartment before installing the new filter. Ensure the outer seal is seated properly before closing the cover and replacing the clips and screws.

After the repair, use the Zeus app to clear the error code and rescan the vehicle to ensure everything is fine. You can also claim a free engine code scanner at the link in the description or check out the provided video for more information.
