You have four one on each side of engine in exhaust manifold these are your front sensors this is what computer reads the rear ones are past the convertor all they do is make sure the catylitic convertors are doing there job.

This code is related to the oxygen sensor on the drivers side of the vehicle. Most times the sensor just needs to be replaced. If you want to make sure, it is the sensor and not a wiring problem or another condition causing this you would need to preform the following test.
Monitor the bank 2 oxygen sensor (O2) voltage on the scanner. If it's showing lean (under 0.5 V), force the engine rich using some propane or carburetor spray. The O2 should go to 0.8-0.9 V.
If the O2 does not go rich as it should, check the voltage at the O2 sensor on the Black (BK) wire. Perform the same test adding external fuel. If the O2 shows rich when using a voltmeter, re-check at pin 44 Red/Black (RD/BK) wire at the Powertrain Control Module (PCM).
If the voltage at the PCM is low as the scanner shows, but the voltage at the sensor responds and goes rich, locate and repair the open circuit in between the PCM and O2 sensor connector.
If the voltage is stuck lean at the O2 and PCM using a voltmeter, cut the BK wire at the O2 sensor leaving all other wires connected. Re-check the voltage on the BK wire. If it now goes rich when adding fuel, check the RD/BK wire for any continuity to ground and repair the wire as needed.
If the wires test out OK and the O2 sensor does not switch as it should, replace the O2 sensor and retest.
Hope this helps.
