Question about 2002 Ford Windstar Cargo
Bank one is always the same side of the engine as the number one cylinder. Bank two is the opposite side.
the number one cylinder is on the back side of the engine closest to the firewall. the upstream (sensor 1) O2 sensor will be in the exhaust manifold. The downstream (sensor 2) will be in the exhaust pipe after the catalytic converter.

Bank one is toward the front of the vehicle. Sounds like the heated oxygen sensors have gone bad. The Oxygen Sensors are located in the exhaust pipe and require a special socket to remove and replace.

It would be highly unlikely for both O2 sensors to go bad. I strongly suspect they are reading what is actually happening,the engine is running lean. Probably from some un-metered air getting into the engine either from a vacuum leak or from a leak somewhere on the engine side of the mass air flow sensor. What usually causes a concern on this vehicle is the orings between the upper and lower intake manifold.

Changed the air filter lately? Possibly defective O2 sensors, but I doubt it. If air filter and intake are clear, I'd check barometric pressure sensor and mass air flow sensors. Get a Haynes or Chilton's for $25 at Pep Boys for instructions on testing these componenets

B1 means the sensor is located on the same bank of the engine that has the #1 cylinder. B2 is located on the opposite bank.
S1 means the sensor is located BEFORE the catalytic converter
S2 means the sensor is located AFTER the catalytic converter
You didn't say which engine you have, so I've included the diagrams of both 4 cyl and 6 cyl so you can see the banks

those two codes are for the o2 sensors. both are the upstream sensors on the front and rear banks. so they are desinagted bank 1 sensor 1 and bank 2 sensor 1. them most common cause for this is faulty o2sensors , bad gas and of a poor running engine. so if your car runs good (no misfire) and gas is ok then replace the o2sensor witch is the very most common cause.

Testimonial: " Help With Problem But Where Are These O2 Sensor"
Tips for a great answer:
This fault code refer at Oxygen O2 Sensor Circuit Low Voltage (Bank 2, Sensor 2), and basically means the PCM detected either an excessive current draw, or an open or short in the circuit powering the oxygen sensor's heater circuit. This is in reference to the Heated Oxygen Sensor (2) located rear of catalytic converter (Bank 2).
A code P0161 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

System Too Lean (Bank 2)
Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 2 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust.
Note: This DTC is very similar to P0171, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time.
