Question about 2002 Kia Optima

1 Answer

I am getting an OBD-II scan code of P1166, need translation.

The OBD-II scanner pulls three codes from my car, who which I am aware of and have to do with the heat circuit on one of my oxygen sensors (bank one, unit two) - I can replace that. However, I cannot find a translation for OBD-II code P1166 anywhere, including all knowing google and the OBD book. Does anyone know what this code indicates?

    After further research, it's possible that OBD-II diagnostic code P1166 may indicate a low voltage issue with an O2 sensor on bank 1, unit 1 - however, I found this on a forum about Honda's and I have a Kia Optima so I would like confirmation. Thanks!

E46 320i 2002 model cranks but will not start.pump pressure is ok at 3.2b plugs have spark what could be the problem


I would first check for error codes using an OBD-II scanner tool- then research the Diagnostic Troubleshoot Code(s) to point you in the direction of the problem. Most common error is when DIYers read the scanner tool and automatically assume scanner codes pulled will pinpoint the exact problem. Scanner tools vary in scope. The bottom line, use the tool as a starting reference point, but you will have to test the component to make sure it is the one that is malfunctioning.

Knocking engine


Instructions
1. Plug in your OBD II (on-board diagnostics) scanner to your OBD II port, which is usually located near the steering column. Many models have the OBD II port on the left side of the under-console of the driver's side dash, near the door. If your car was manufactured prior to the 1994 production year, you may need to use an OBD I translator, which plugs into your OBD II scanner.


2. Turn on your scanner, which may require you to turn your car to the "Acc" position, and read the codes that appear. Use a manual that comes with the scanner to translate the codes.


3. Replace any sensors that come up in the OBD II scan. Multiple sensors work together in order to help fire and time the ignition process for the engine's combustion. The knock sensor particularly helps to sense the engine vibration patterns and regulate the timing in accordance, and may account for excessive engine vibration if the sensor is failed. You may need to remove several components and engine parts in order to access specific sensors, depending on your make, model and engine design. You may also need to raise your vehicle on car ramps in order to access the underside of the engine to remove and replace certain sensors.


4. Replace engine and transmission mounts if needed. This process can vary from vehicle to vehicle, however it usually involves using one or two floor jacks to support the weight of the engine while unbolting one or more engine mounts. Each engine mount also has its own insulator and rubber stopper materials, which are critical to the engine mount's functioning. Failed engine mounts do not necessarily lead to damaging other engine components and is not a fix critical to the proper functioning of your car engine.


5. Inspect your harmonic balancer, which is connected to the crankshaft via a drive belt and serves to reduce and absorb some of the vibrations caused by the crankshaft itself. Loosen and remove the drive belt by turning the belt tensioner bolt. Unbolt the harmonic balancer with a torque wrench and inspect the insulator component, which should be in good shape. Replace the harmonic balancer if the insulator is cracked or showing signs of wear and tear, or if it is missing.

2000 Ford F250 Supercab-Engine light comes on even after you reset it. No code shows up when you scan it.


If it is a diesel engine then unfortunatley they are NOT OBD II compliant. They do have the OBD II port but the scanners you can use at the A/P store won't pull those code(s). You will have to use a scanner that pulls PSD code(s) or go to a shop with the equipment or the dealer.

Does the 2003 trailblazer have a on board diagnostic system? if so how do i activate it


yes, it's always active. A light will come on when it detects a fault. You can also use a good scanner to interrogate the system, actuate valves, etc.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5932051-check_engine_light_check and let me know if you have questions.

if you used a generic form of scanner, you will not get any codes. youre going to need to take it in so they can get into the rest of the system to track down the source of the problem. no obd2 is a protocol.
