Question about Cars & Trucks
P0032"Heated O2 Sensor Circuit High Bank 1 Sensor 1" The ECU detected a high resistance condition in the heater element circuit for the pre-catalytic converter sensor.Probably just need to replace the sensor,but you can check for voltage across two of the wires(see your wiring diagram).

P0032 means HO2S Heater Control Circuit High (Bank 1 Sensor 1).
It means high impedance from O2 sensor, check wiring to sensor and replace the sensor.
Check O2 sensor located in bank 1 (cylinder 1 side- see here), and after the catalitic converter (there is also an O2 sensor before cat converter).

Hello, First, you have to clear some of the Codes with a scanner or wait after 25-35 start-ups for the information to cycle out of the system.
Next, make sure you have replaced the correct Bank or lower or upper sensor when there can be 4 sensors on the exhaust.
The wiring running to your sensors may be bad. Also, if anyone has fooled with the wiring to the sensors, some have cooling tubes which are embedded in the wiring. Sometimes people rewire the connectors to fit different O2 sensor plug-ins and the cooling tube is cut. When these plug-ins are manipulated this way the sensors overheat.
I can't say offhand about how your PT cruiser has its wires configured into junction connectors. They may be replaceable junctions or may be moulded into the housing of the O2 control unit as 1 piece.
You will need to ask at an Autoparts store or go to a Salvage yard and try to find a harness you can use. It is not impossible that the sensors you purchased could be bad. You should be able to get some sort of continuity value from the prong connectors on the O2 sensors to see if you have a circuit in the part.
I hope my solution is helpful, perhaps a Chrysler mechanic will answer you.
