Code P0157


OBD II P0157 due to Oxygen Sensor Circuit Low Voltage (Bank 2, Sensor 2)
This code refers to a fault in the post-catalyst o2 sensor on Bank 2. First, a basic run-down of the catalyst: The Catalytic Converter is used to help control tailpipe emissions, to "clean up" the exhaust, if you will. The PCM (Powertrain Control Module) uses the signal from the heated oxygen sensor to the rear of the catalyst to monitor the catalyst's efficiency by comparing it to the o2 sensors in front of the catalyst.

P0157 O2 Sensor Circuit Low Voltage

P0430 is a catalyst efficiency code. If there are no leaks in the exhaust or any vacuum leaks that could affect O2 sensor operation and the O2 sensors are working properly then it's possible that you need a catalytic converter. If you have access to a scanner capable of reading live data plug it in and take the vehicle on the high way at a steady 55-60 mph. The O2 sensor should read somewhere around 700 mv give or take but should not fluctuate to much. If it does you need a catalyst bank #2. Good luck!

Please tell me what this means,,, po171 band 1 system too lean and po174 band 2 system too lean, thank you, jill


PO 171--is an O2 Sensor Code for a Lean Condition
on Bank 1 (right side exhaust)

PO 174 -- is an O2 Sensor Codes for a Lean Condition
on Bank 2 (left side exhaust)

You gave us no vehicle
You gave us no drivability issues or
vehicle history,nothing

If the O2's have 100,000 miles on them,change the (2)
closest to the engine. They are most likely worn out
& the switching times are too slow to control injector
pulse width & thus set a MIL Lamp (OBD2 Fault ) on
your dash

You can learn a lot on the internet if you put OBD2 in your
Search Engine (Internet Explorer,etc)

I have code p0137 coming up on my 2003 jeep grand cherokee laredo what does the code mean?


P0137 - Oxygen O2 Sensor Circuit Low Voltage (Bank 1, Sensor 2)

Essentially the same as P0136, P0137 refers to the second oxygen sensor on Bank 1. P0137 means the O2 oxygen sensor's voltage remained low for longer than 2 minutes. This, is interpreted by the ECM as a low voltage condition and sets the MIL. Bank 1 Sensor 2 is located to the rear of the catalytic converter and should produce an output signal relative to oxygen storage capacity of the catalytic converter. This rear (sensor 2) sensor is less active than the signal produced by the front sensor. However, if the ECM senses the sensor is inactive, this code will set.

Symptoms: There may be no visible symptoms to the driver, other than the MIL (Check Engine / Service Engine Soon) illumination.

Causes: A code P0137 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* Faulty o2 sensor Exhaust leak near the rear sensor
* Plugged catalyst
* Short to voltage on O2 signal circuit
* High resistance or open on O2 signal circuit

Possible Solutions:
* Replace faulty sensor
* Repair exhaust leak near the rear sensor
* Check for restriction in catalyst and replace as necessary
* Repair short, open, or high resistance on o2 signal circuit

A po171 code came on my scanner i need to know


system too lean in bank 1. clean your mass airflow sensor, replace fuel filter. iff all else fails check you fuel pump.

Error coce P0420 on OB-2 scanner


P0420 = Catalyst System Efficiency Below ThresholdCatalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold. This means that the secondary O2 sensor detects that the catalytic converter isn't working as efficiently as it should. This engine code can be triggered by any one of the following:

1.) The catalyst in the catalytic converter is cracked, clogged, or otherwise damaged.
2.) The secondary O2 sensor is malfunctioning.
3.) There is an exhaust leak.
4.) The computer unit is faulty

Have a code po 430 catalyst efficiency below threshold (bank 2) is it an o2 sensor ,and if it is where is it located


You def have a catayst problem. Before changing the converter i would recommend changing both up and down stream oxygen sensor on bank 2. If they are old thats what the computer determines if the catalyst is good or not. Most of the time after changing the sensors and resetting the light the problem is solved.

Main catalyst efficiency below threshold bank 2 cherokee 2001


If the readings were close to passing, use 3oz of acetone per 10 gals of fuel and it should pass. Then you have a whole year to figure out what's wrong with it! Main cat is the large one. all others are pre-cats.

Code # P0141 and P0138


You said you changed the O2 sensors, which ones? I do believe that sensor 2 is the Catalyst efficiency monitor, it looks like an O2 but it's function is different. This sensor is behind the Catalytic converter, the O2 is in front. Bank one is the bank that # 1 cylinder is on, so the sensor that is defective is the 2nd sensor back on that sides exhaust pipe.
