KIA Niro: Inlet Temperature Sensor

 Inlet Temperature Sensor #1 (Main High Voltage)

Description

The inlet temperature sensor is installed on top of the high voltage battery module, and it detects the air temperature inside the battery system assembly.

The inlet temperature sensor value determines the cooling fan operation status.
