Have a Ford fusion 06 Have p0141 code I fix the oxygen sensor but the codes still comes on?


Did you replace the right one ? This code does not necessarily mean the O2 sensor is bad . The code description say O2 heater " CIRCUIT " bank 1 sensor 2 Did you check the wiring , the fuse ?
P0141 - O2 Heater Circuit (Bank 1, Sensor 2) Description: See the description for DTC P0135. Possible Causes: See the possible causes for DTC P0135. Diagnostic Aids: See the diagnostic aids for DTC P0135. Application Key On Engine Off Key On Engine Running Continuous Memory All GO to Pinpoint Test DW . P0135 - O2 Heater Circuit (Bank 1, Sensor 1) Description: During testing the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) heaters are checked for open and short circuits and excessive current draw. The test fails when the current draw exceeds a calibrated limit or an open or short circuit is detected. Possible Causes:
  • Vacuum hose disconnected on exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system module (ESM) applications
  • Short to VPWR in the harness or HO2S
  • Water in the harness connector
  • Open VPWR circuit
  • Open GND circuit
  • Low battery voltage
  • Corrosion or incorrect harness connections
  • Damaged HO2S heater
Diagnostic Aids: Check the HO2S electrical connector for damage, corrosion, and water intrusion.

What is p0141b and how to fix it?


Technical Description O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1, Sensor 2) What does that mean? This code means that the heated circuit in the oxygen sensor on bank 1 decreases time needed to enter closed loop. As the O2 heater reaches operating temperature, the oxygen sensor responds by switching according to oxygen content of the exhaust surrounding it. The ECM tracks how long it takes for the oxygen sensor to begin switching. It the ECM determines (based on coolant temp) that too much time elapsed before the oxygen sensor began operating properly, it will set P0141. See also: P0135 (Bank 1, Sensor 1). Symptoms You will likely notice poor fuel economy the illumination of the Check Engine Light. Causes A code P0141 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: open or short to ground in the wiring harness O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance O2 heater element resistance is high Internal short or open in the heater element Note: Typically a failed catalytic converter does not cause this code. You're more likely to see a P0420 code for a failed converter. Possible Solutions Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor) Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors



Try wiggling the wire to the Oxygen sensor. Probably just corroded or loose! Worst case, $25 for a new sensor.

Pontiac Aztek 2001 - 3.4l (non-GT); Codes: P0135, P0141, P0420 all O2 + Converter. Ideas on problem?


P0135 bank 1 sensor 1 open or short in wires,bad connections,bad sensor ,or bad ecm. P0141 bank 1 sensor 2 same diag as P0135. P0420 cat below threshold open or short, or faulty Ho2s sensors.you may have several problems. start with sensors circuit if good change sensors if not trace to ecm if reading not right replace ecm if all good replace sensors clear codes retest drive two drive cycles for cat to clear tests. then with no dtcs present test fuel pressure , injectors,then ignition system ,timing valves ,map,maf sensors,throttle sensor,crank sensor cam sensor, compression.

What is diagnostic procedures for DTC p0135 & p0141


Oxygen Sensor problems... P0135 (Bank 1, Sensor 1) and P0141 (Bank 1, Sensor 2)

P0135 - Oxygen O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1, Sensor 1)
This code refers to the front oxygen sensor on Bank 1. The heated circuit in the oxygen sensor decreases time needed to enter closed loop. As the O2 heater reaches operating temperature, the oxygen sensor responds by switching according to oxygen content of the exhaust surrounding it.

The ECM tracks how long it takes for the oxygen sensor to begin switching. It the ECM determines (based on coolant temp) that too much time elapsed before the oxygen sensor began operating properly, it will set P0135.

Symptoms: You will likely notice poor fuel economy the illumination of the MIL.

Causes: A code P0135 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
O2 Heater element resistance is high
Internal short or open in the heater element
O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance
open or short to ground in the wiring harness

Possible Solutions:
Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors
Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor)



P0141 - O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1, Sensor 2)
This code means that the heated circuit in the oxygen sensor on bank 1 decreases time needed to enter closed loop. As the O2 heater reaches operating temperature, the oxygen sensor responds by switching according to oxygen content of the exhaust surrounding it. The ECM tracks how long it takes for the oxygen sensor to begin switching. It the ECM determines (based on coolant temp) that too much time elapsed before the oxygen sensor began operating properly, it will set P0141.

Symptoms: You will likely notice poor fuel economy the illumination of the Check Engine Light.

Causes: A code P0141 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
open or short to ground in the wiring harness
O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance
O2 heater element resistance is high
Internal short or open in the heater element

Note: Typically a failed catalytic converter does not cause this code. You're more likely to see a P0420 code for a failed converter.

Possible Solutions:
Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor)
Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors


Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer)..

P0443 : Evaporative Emission control System Purge control valve.

P1451: Eavporative Control System Canister vent solenoid Circuit Malfunction.

P0161: O2 Sensor Circuit Low voltage (bank2,Sensor2)

P1409: Electronic Vacuum Regulator (EVR) control circuit malfunction.

change the O2 sensors first,Then check the the EGR Vacuum regulator for any Malfunction. Good luck

Replaced both sensors in a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix P0135 P0141


A code P0135 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: = O2 Heater element resistance is high
= Internal short or open in the heater element = O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance = open or short to ground in the wire harness. 
What to do; = Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors.
= Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor)
A code P0141 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

Same as above: mentioned in P0135.
What do do is the same as above, so i am leaning towards and faulty wire harness since you have replaced both O2 sensors. Make sure the wire harness has no break in it or crushed connection clips. The other thing to look for is a bad fuse that is used to heat up the O2 sensor. It may not say O2 sensor on it, it may piggy back off something else so check all the fuse and make sure the O2 has a good ground and not corroded. Good luck and hope this helps.
