UPDATE: I WAS HELLA WRONG!
The problem turned out to be a broken sensor. The thermistor on the TMAP sensor was broken/missing, thus causing the ECU to run its programmed default in the event of...well...a sensor failure.
The Bosch TMAP sensor will still show a resistance value between the thermistor pins that appears to be in range even if the thermistor itself is broken/missing.
Problem: The intake temperature reading on my Emerald K6 ECU is locked at 40˚c.
Sensor: Ford combined MAP/temperature sensor, CF 331 (4S4G-9F479-AC)
The voltage mapping is wrong for this sensor putting it outside of the readable ranges.
- The Emerald K6 documentation sucks monkey and doesn't specifically address information about the electrical connection of the intake air temperature sensor.
- Emerald simply say "Input > Air Temperature > Yes, standard Bosch or user programmable characteristic"
- They don't offer electrical connection information. Since the Bosch NTC sensor is a resistance type sensor I have to assume that there's an internal pull-up and I'll assume that it's a 1k Ohm resistor. ('Cause that's how things tend to be)
- The table below is best guess/estimated values based on 5vcc in and a 1k Ohm pull-up resistor.
