A.F.S. Query

Post by PeterM » Fri Dec 24, 2010 3:59 pm

Hi,

Can anyone help with this:

Example--Vehicle response to throttle is flat---no power---picoscope tells me it is A.F.Sensor that is at fault. Which is o.k. My question is if i disconnect the electrical block connection to the A.F.S. why does the vehicle appear to run better and is responsive to throttle position i.e. no signal being received by the e.c.u. Would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot,
Peter.

A.F.S ?

Is this air flow sensor as in MAF ?

When disconnected reverts to a base setting [MAP] & works on signals from O2 & ECT sensor [closed loop] .

Hi,
Thanks for reply.Sorry about this ,my fault. The vehicle is actually a mondeo TDCI 2 litre 04. It is MAF and manual.This query is out of interest really because this occurs with many vehicles.Thanks a lot,
Peter.
