ATC 001547.04 – Evaporator Core Temperature Sensor Voltage Too Low. John Deere System Advisory.

ATC 001547.04 (ATC 1547.04)

Code: 001547.04

Shortcode: 1547.04


The error code, ATC 001547.04, is triggered when the control unit measures 0 volts at the signal input for the evaporator core temperature sensor (B129, lead 2018). This absence of voltage typically indicates a short to ground in the circuit, which can prevent the sensor from functioning and lead to inaccurate or nonexistent temperature readings from the evaporator core.


The low voltage condition may cause the HVAC system to malfunction, as it cannot accurately determine the temperature of the evaporator core. This could lead to inefficient cooling, excessive cooling, or system shutdowns to prevent damage or inefficient operation.


  • Inspect Wiring and Connections: Examine the wiring and connections at lead 2018 for signs of damage, corrosion, or improper grounding that could create a short.
  • Measure and Diagnose the Circuit: Use a multimeter to check for continuity and to identify where the short to ground may be occurring within the circuit.
  • Repair or Replace Faulty Wiring: Repair any identified shorts or replace damaged wiring to restore proper electrical integrity to the sensor circuit.
  • Test Sensor Functionality: Once repairs are made, test the evaporator core temperature sensor to ensure it is functioning correctly and providing accurate temperature data.
  • Reset System and Perform Functional Testing: Clear any fault codes from the system and conduct a functional test of the HVAC system to ensure that it responds correctly to input from the evaporator core temperature sensor.


Ensuring the integrity of sensor circuits within the HVAC system is crucial for maintaining optimal functionality and comfort within the vehicle. Regular checks for wiring integrity and sensor performance can prevent issues related to inaccurate temperature control and HVAC efficiency.
