2004 Chevy Blazer O2 Sensor

P0155 O2 Bank 2 Sensor 1  I have had this part replaced 2 times and the service engine light still comes on.  I need to get this fixed so I can get tags on my vehicle.  Is there something I am missing or can it be something else wrong.  Description:From my understanding it the sensor in front of the catalitic converter. Please help my Wife needs her vehicle back.  Also is there someplace online where I can get a picture of exactly where this part goes. Thank - you Larry

There are two 02 sensors actually on the engine. bank one is cylinders 1 3 5 bank 2 is 2 4 6. it controls the fuel to air ratio, if the O2 sensor is not working, the engine goes into limp mode, which means it is just putting as much fuel as possible into the cylinder, which will effect your gas mileage.

The O2 sensor may be fine, the pigtails off the 02 sensor go bad, the connection. I had in my car, i change the 02 sensor twice, then I found someone said the pigtails may be bad, so I cut the cars wiring harness pigtail, and the one coming off the 02 sensor, and directly wired it with the original truck 02 sensor, and it worked. all 02 sensors look similar, they screw in the side of the engine, and just have 4 wires coming off of it.

Try your origional one, and just bypassing the original wire connector, what I did was cut it off, skinned the wires, put some heat shrink rap on it, combined the wires together soldered them together, and heated the wire shrink rap, so that way it is water proof. car works perfect now.

O2 sensor is one of the most misunderstood components. It does nothing except to react to conditions in the exhaust mixture, which are the result of what the remainder of the engine is doing. (proper fuel mix, spark control & blowby gasses in the exhaust stream) Though in reacting, it does give the ecm info to which the ecm reacts, generally it is not the sensor itself which is bad, but another malfunction or condition that is providing the sensor with something "bad to read"! Anything from improper base timing, a vacuum leak, a bad exhaust gasket or worn timing chain can change exhaust composition enough to affect what the sensor is seeing! If changing sensor, it is located on exhaust pipe, ahead lof cat (looks like a part of a spark plug with one or two wires coming out of the top. Do not install without using anti-seize compound or you will never get it out again!!
good luck

Why the codes po125 & po135 &po155 keep coming back?

Hi there:

DTC P0125 - Insufficient Coolant Temperature For Closed Loop Fuel Control

The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
If the code comes back, the problem is likely going to be the result of the above causes (faulty thermostat, faulty ECT sensor, or a low coolant level).

DTC P0135 - Oxygen O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1, Sensor 1)
DTC P0155 - 02 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 2 Sensor 1)

A code P0135 and P0155 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

In order to solve just...
  • 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)

  • Hopoe this helps.

    I'm thinking about buying a 2002 range rover. It has a service/check engine codes of 134,135,155. Is it likely to be more than oxygen sensor problems? Please reply , Mel

    with those codes showing, it could be either bad O2 sensors or there is a problem with the wiring to those sensors. Also, the wrong sensors may be installed. I'm assuming codes P0134, P0135, P0155.

    For others viewing this:

    P0134 = O2 sensor circuit-no activity detected (bank 1 sensor 1)

    P0135 = O2 sensor heater circuit malfunction (bank 1 sensor 1)

    P0155 = O2 sensor heater circuit malfunction (bank 2 sensor 1)

    Code P0155, 1155, will get those code's with vacuum leaks, I have seen that many times here at my repair shop, many times customers come in, after they have done a tune-up, as you have, and same problem, check for vacuum leaks, more so on top of engine to the back, by fire wall.

    P0155 OBDII code refers to HO2S heater circuit - bank 2 sensor 1 , not knowing your engine size and engine vin code thats about as far as we can go with our answer . we can say bank 2 sensor 1 is the passenger side upstream oxygen sensor has a heater circuit problem , could possibly be a bad oxygen sensor . you ask what is that - thats what it is ... cheers .

    Check engine light on code is P0155-02

    I had to replace both o2 sensors on my 2002 Tundra after about 50K. Toyota recalled this problem afterwards and refunded my money. My solution to you is to not worry about which one is bad and go ahead and replace both, because I had one bad and before I could replace it the other went bad also. PS: You'll have to purchase a special socket to remove them and unless you pruchase the Toyota product ( I used O'Reilly parts), you have to cut and splice the wires with a waterproof splicing kit included with the sensors. Just follow the instructions, not a hard job.
