Valve Position Sensor

The valve position sensor, which is a non-contact type that uses a Hall IC and a magnet, is mounted on the valve shaft axis.

The valve position sensor, which is located in the intake manifold runner valve motor assembly, detects the opening position of the runner valve. This sensor gives the ECM feedback on the opening position of the runner valve, which is used for SFI control, as well as for detecting the failure of the runner valve, such as if the runner valve is stuck.

The ECM detects a "low sensor output failure" (DTC P2016) when the output voltage of the valve position sensor is 0.2V or less, and a "high sensor output failure" (DTC P2017) when the output voltage is 4.8V or more.
