IAT Sensor Location
IAT Sensor Location on Various Vehicles:
Many vehicles models have their IAT = Temp sensor located on the air intake track of the vehicle or throttle body. It will have 2 wires only. If you cannot find your IAT and your car is 2000+ , then it maybe built into your MAF = Mass Air Flow meter and will have 4-6 wires going to it. This connector is located on your air intake track as well. Please find your vehicle below. Please understand we could not have taken pictures of every vehicles sensor, use the below guide to find yours. If your car is not listed, we highly recommend you check a repair manual such as http://www.bentleypublishers.com
