Obd fault codes po138 sensor high voltage bank 1 sensor 2 [po304 misfire detected cylinder 4 what does this mean

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Mar 13, 2014

    I am trying to diagnose the root cause behind several different codes that the OBD scanner is reading. My car is running fine and great and one day the CEL comes on and I get worried. I take it to AutoZone and Advanced Auto Parts to get the code ran. At Autozone they showed me these codes: P0606: ECM Processor Error P0136, P0137 and P0138: Heated oxygen sensor - bank 1 sensor 2 circuit low voltage, circuit fault, and circuit high voltage. P0300, P0301 and P304: Random cylinder misfire condition, cylinder 1 misfire detected and cylinder 4 misfire detected. (I cannot tell if the engine is misfiring if it is.) C1241: Low Battery Positive Voltage or Abnormally High Battery Positive Voltage. (This makes me think that the battery is weak, it would make sense considering it the stock battery which is over 7 years old.) My question is, is it possible that all of these codes be resulting from a weak/old battery and if I changed the battery it would solve the seemingly numerous problems?

Did it fail high hc? you could change 4and 6 coils around and see if you get a p0306 that means the coil pack is bad. common on this type.

My 96 nissian maxima turns off when driving down the road i try to turn the key ,lights in dash on horn blows but will not startcould it be alternater ,or what how does the 02 sensor go by functioning ...


As of 1996,all cars sold in the US were required to have an OBD-II computer interface port.
You may want to go to Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, or Pep Boys, and get a free read
of the code(s) that you computer may be posting to help with your diagnosis.

The code coming from your vehicle's computer may be one or more of:


P0130 02 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank I Sensor 1)

P0132 02 Sensor Circuit High Voltage (Bank I Sensor 1)

P0134 02 Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank I Sensor 1)

Maximas with the VE30DE and VQ30DE engines use a distributorless ignition system that is controlled by the Engine Control Module (ECM). The ECM receives a signal from the crankshaft sensor (the CPS - Crankshaft Position Sensor), and processes the signal based on inputs
from other various engine sensors, including the Oxygen sensor.
(this is the role of the O2 sensor in ECM operation).
Then the ECM sends signals to each of the individual coils in the proper firing order.
This system is more efficient than a distributor, and has fewer moving parts. The high voltage coils are directly attached to each spark plug, allowing a higher energy spark within the cylinder. A high energy spark means a faster, more thorough burning of the air/fuel mixture, which produces more power and lower emissions.


SECONDARY SPARK TEST - works for all cars, including Maxima.


1. Remove the spark plug.

2. Install the spark plug to the ignition coil/coil pack, then attach the coil wiring.

3. Ground the plug at a good ground location on the engine.

4. Crank the engine and check for spark.

5. If spark occurs, the ignition system is functioning properly.

6. If no spark exists, test the ignition coil/coil pack, power transistor and related wiring.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HEI Ignition Spark test - works for all cars, including Maxima.

The next level test you may want to try is a HEI (high energy ignition) spark tester kit. Cost is
about $30 at most auto parts stores. Harbor Freight Tools sells a chinese equivalent for about $16.
Place the spark tester on each of the spark plugs, and watch as the little light in the tester will
light up each time the spark plug is fired by the computer. You can actually see weak or
intermittent sparking as the motor runs - you can tell by the relative strength of the light as
you compare the intensity and duration of the light across all 6 cylinders.

If your problem were the alternator (or its built-in voltage regulator), your battery would not be
getting a proper charge, and you
wouldn't be able to start the car after a drive, since the battery would have been drained during the
drive - normally, the alternator will both charge the battery and run all electrical
features of the car during a drive.

To test your alternator, place your DMM (digital multimeter) across the battery terminals while the
car is running - it should read 13.5VDC to 14.5VDC. With the car off, you can test your battery
voltage with the same DMM - it should read 12.65 VDC (for a fully charged battery).

Alternatively, you can take your car to Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, or Pep Boys, and they'll
attach their "charging system tester" to your car and give your car a nice test for free.
I do this with my customers' cars just to get that nifty printout of the problem. Its nice
to show a vehicle owner somethng in black & white when I'm recommending a new charging
or ignition system component (some of which can be a bit pricey).

Failed smog check


po304 is just that #4 cyl has a problem could be a bad spark plug or a bad plug wire or bolth
if it hasnt had an ign tuneup its time.
the po138 is just telling you one of the cylinders isnt burning all the fuel put into that cyl.
so its just cause and effect.
if ya need any more info let me know
later paul
