ATC 001552.04 – Temperature Control Voltage Too Low. John Deere System Advisory.

ATC 001552.04 (ATC 1552.04)

Code: 001552.04

Shortcode: 1552.04


The error code, ATC 001552.04, is triggered when the control unit measures 0 volts at the signal input for the temperature control. This absence of voltage generally indicates a short to ground within the internal circuit of the control unit. Such a fault can prevent the temperature control from functioning correctly, potentially leading to an inability to adjust the cabin temperature.


The low voltage condition may cause the temperature control system to fail, leading to no response from the climate control settings. This could severely impact the comfort levels within the cabin, making it either too hot or too cold, depending on external conditions.


  • Inspect Wiring and Connections: Check the wiring and connections to the temperature control for any signs of damage or grounding issues. Focus on locating areas where insulation may be compromised, allowing contact with the vehicle chassis or other grounded components.
  • Measure and Diagnose the Circuit: Use a multimeter to test for continuity and to locate where the short to ground is occurring within the circuit.
  • Repair or Replace Faulty Wiring or Components: Once the source of the short is identified, repair the damaged wires or replace faulty components to restore electrical integrity to the circuit.
  • Test Temperature Control Functionality: After addressing the electrical issues, test the temperature control to ensure it functions correctly and can regulate the cabin temperature effectively.
  • Reset System and Perform Functional Testing: Clear any fault codes from the system and conduct a full operational test to ensure that all components function correctly and that the issue has been fully resolved.


Regular checks and maintenance of the HVAC system’s electrical components are crucial to ensuring reliable operation and comfort. Addressing electrical faults in temperature controls promptly helps maintain the effectiveness of the climate control system and ensures the comfort and safety of vehicle occupants.
