ATC 001552.03 – Temperature Control Voltage Too High. John Deere System Advisory.

ATC 001552.03 (ATC 1552.03)

Code: 001552.03

Shortcode: 1552.03


The error code, ATC 001552.03, is triggered when the control unit detects a voltage exceeding 5 volts at the signal input for the temperature control. This high voltage typically indicates that the internal circuit of the control unit is either shorted to a power supply lead or is open. Such an issue could impact the functionality of the temperature control, leading to erratic or incorrect temperature settings.


The high voltage condition may cause the temperature control system to behave unpredictably, potentially leading to improper climate control within the cabin. This could affect occupant comfort and safety, especially under extreme weather conditions.


  • Inspect Wiring and Connections: Check the wiring and connections at the temperature control unit for signs of damage or a short to power supply leads. Look for frayed wires, loose connectors, or exposed conductors.
  • Measure Voltage Levels: Use a multimeter to verify the voltage at the temperature control’s signal input. High readings confirm the presence of an electrical fault.
  • Identify and Repair Short Circuits or Open Connections: Locate and repair any shorts to power or open connections within the circuit. Replace damaged wires or connectors as necessary.
  • Test Temperature Control Functionality: After repairs, test the temperature control to ensure it accurately responds to inputs and controls the cabin temperature effectively.
  • Reset System and Verify Operation: Clear any stored fault codes and perform a comprehensive test to ensure the temperature control system operates correctly under normal conditions.


Regular maintenance and inspection of the HVAC system’s electrical components are essential to ensure accurate monitoring and control of system operations. Early detection and correction of voltage irregularities are crucial to maintaining the performance and efficiency of the climate control systems, thereby enhancing the comfort and safety of the vehicle’s occupants.
