IAT is part of MAF. Here are test procedures.

 

INTAKE AIR TEMPERATURE SENSOR CHECK

  1. Disconnect the mass airflow sensor connectors.
  2. Measure resistance between terminals 1 and 4. Standard value: 13 - 17 kohms[at -20 °C (-4 °F)] 5.3 - 6.7 kohms[at 0 °C (32 °F)] 2.3 - 3.0 kohms[at 20 °C (68 °F)] 1.0 - 1.5 kohms[at 40 °C (104 °F)] 0.56 - 0.76 kohms[at 60 °C (140 °F)] 0.30 - 0.45 kohms[at 80 °C (176 °F)]

  1. If not within specifications, replace the mass airflow sensor.
  2. Measure resistance while heating the sensor using a hair dryer.

  1. If resistance does not decrease as heat increases, replace the mass airflow sensor.
