Hi!!
What all this codes have in common is that every single one of them can be caused by a vacuum leak, so carefully check for cracked, loose or disconnected vacuum hoses, wiring to the coils, fuel pressure regulator, fuel injectors, specially on cylinder 2.

  • PO100 - Possible causes are wiring harness failure, air leak or defective hot film MAF sensor
  • PO130 - Vacuum leak
  • PO170 - PO173 - Possible causes are air ingress (leak), fuel injector failure, pressure regulator failure or mechanical wear of engine. Inspect and repair as necessary.
  • PO300 - possible causes are vacuum leak, wiring harness failure or ignition coil defective.
  • PO302 - If limit value for misfire "harmful to TWC" is exceeded, the MIL flashes immediately. If too many combustion misfires occur in one cylinder, the cylinder is switched off (cylinder selective fuel shut off). After the affected cylinders are shut off, the MIL changes from flashing to continuously lit until next time the engine is started. If combustion misfires are recognized, the fault code P0460 or P0462 is set if fuel tank level is too low (fuel reserve indicator light is on). Combustion misfires due to a shortage of fuel are recognized by means of this additional information.

NOTE:After cylinder cut-out system is turned off, the system monitors (through misfire detection) if all intake and exhaust valves are open again.
NOTE:Misfiring may be caused by many faults in the fuel injection system. Usually a misfiring fault is stored with faults pertaining to other components. An engine mechanical fault could also cause a misfire condition.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

2005 dodge grand caravan 3.8 code po135 in stalled new botch o/2 sensor cleared codes drove van check eng light came back on same code whats is going on


Code 135 is for a faulty heater in the O2 sensor. Since you have replaced the sensor the problem is probably the circuit or the power source for the heater.
You'll need to check the heater circuit next.

P0052 code how do I fix the problem?


Hi there:

P0052 - Oxygen (A/F) Sensor Heater Control Circuit High (Bank 2 Sensor 1)
A P0052 DTC (diagnostic trouble code) refers to the O2 sensor (oxygen sensor) located on Bank 2 in front of the catalytic converter. There is also an oxygen sensor behind the converter which is Sensor #2. Bank 2 is the side of the engine that doesn't contain cylinder #1.



This O2 sensor #1 may also be refered to as an air/fuel ratio sensor since on some vehicles it is. The sensor detects the amount of oxygen in the exhaust gas compared to the outside air and then vehicle's computer adjusts the air/fuel ratio going into the engine. The sensor is less effective when the exhaust gas temperature is low, so it includes a heater which is activated to help get better readings from the O2 sensor. Essentially this P0052 code means that the resistance of the heater circuit is higher than normal. In some cases, that resistance level must be higher than 10 A to trigger the DTC code.


Note: this code is very similar in nature to P0031, P0032, and P0051


Most likely you'll not notice any symptoms other than the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp, a.k.a. the check engine light) will illuminate.



Causes: a P0052 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:
A short in the heater circuit in the sensor
A failed O2 sensor heater
Wiring/connectors broken/frayed leading to sensor and/or relay
Failed PCM/ECM


Possible Solutions: To fix a P0052 DTC code, you'll need to do a proper diagnosis. To do that, you'll want to inspect the wiring and connectors leading to the sensor. Also if equipped with a heater relay and fuse, you'll want to check those as well. Use a digital volt ohm meter to:


check for 12 volts at the heater circuit feed (hint: unplug the sensor and check at the wiring connector to do this measurement)
check the ground circuit for continuity
measure the resistance of the heater circuit (done on the sensor itself)
measure the resistance and voltage of the wiring
Refer to a service manual for the correct specifications (volts, ohms) for your vehicle. On some Toyota vehicles this code is triggered when the resistance of the heater circuit is above 10 A.


With that said, a common fix for this DTC is to replace the air/fuel (O2 oxygen) sensor #2 on bank 1.


Please keep in mind that OEM (original equipment) replacement sensors are recommended (from the dealer). Aftermarket sensors can be less reliable and of poorer quality (not always, but more often). There's also a chance that replacement parts for the P0052 code may also fall under a federal emissions warranty (check with your dealer to see if it's covered).


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Air sensor check engine light


Ok as a guess that you have a SUV and you have different air faults. if you are a DYI'er go to an auto parts store and get an error code tool. Harbor freight for $30-50. Hook it to the car and find out which sensor is it calling for. Note, you can reset the check engine light on most tools that are not the cheapest.

Po174 and po154 what is possible solutions


P0154 - 02 Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank 2 Sensor 1)
The oxygen sensors are critical to the engine running properly. It basically informs the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) of oxygen content of the exhaust. The PCM then uses this information to regulate fuel into the engine and maintain proper air:fuel ratio. It is a four wire sensor, with the PCM providing a reference/signal voltage of about half a volt (0.5v) to the sensor. It usually provides a ground also. The other two wires are dedicated to the oxygen sensor heater element. This heater allows the sensor to warm up faster, which allows the engine to enter closed loop faster, reducing startup emissions. The heater element is supplied a 12v feed from the power distribution center (usually) and a ground.

The oxygen content of the exhaust affects the O2 sensor resistance. This resistance produces a counter voltage on the reference/signal wire that the PCM will use to analyze oxygen in the exhaust. Lean exhaust produces low voltage, while rich exhaust produces high voltage. The oxygen sensor is capable of varying between 0.9v (rich) and 0.1v (lean). Once the engine reaches closed loop, the O2 sensor should begin switching rapidly between rich and lean voltages 2-3 times per second. If for some reason the O2 sensor doesn't switch properly or "sticks", P0154 may set. This code indicates the O2 sensor isn't operating.


P0174 - System Too Lean (Bank 2)
Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 2 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 2 is generally the side of the engine that doesn't have cylinder #1.

Note: This DTC is very similar to P0171, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time.

You will more than likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a lack of power, detonation (spark knock), and/or a hesitation/surge on acceleration.

There is a fault with the inbuilt heater in the oxygen sensor, before the catalytic converter, on the exhaust pipe the same side of the engine as cylinder 1. The oxygen sensor has four wires within the cable sheath to the top of it. Two of the wires will share the same color. These wires supply power to an internal heating element wire within the sensor. Follow the cable from the oxygen sensor to the connector, you can do a lot testing here. Check the resistance between the two 'same coloured ' wires. The resistance is low, somewhere between 1 and 10 ohms. If there is no continuity (infinite resistance) then this is the fault and the sensor needs to be replaced. The codes: P0030 the oxygen sensor heater relay is at fault P0053 Oxygen heater resistance error P0135 Sensor 1 bank 1 error You are looking at replacement. A further confirmation take the connection from sensor 1 bank 1 and swap it with the sensor 1 bank 2 on the other side of the engine. The codes should 'transfer' and show P0036; P0059 and P0141.

Code p0171 system too lean bank 1


I could be wrong but that sounds like maybe an oxygen sensor (bank 1). Not sure what code i had on my car but the only bank 1 and bank 2 I heard of is the oxygen sensor but you can always go to autozone and they can check the code and tell you what it is.

I have a 96 Ford Explorer. The service engine


P0141 is for an open or short in the heater circuit of bank 1(passenger side) rear O2 sensor(the one after the catayltic converter). This code will set when the computer runs the heated oxygen sensor monitor which is basically a program kinda like an anitvirus scan on your home PC.
During testing, the HO2S heaters are checked for opens/shorts and excessive current draw. The code will set when current draw exceeds a maximum calibrated limit(3amps) or falls below a minimum calibrated limit(0.220 amps for NKT sensor and 0.400 amps for bosch sensor) and/or an open or short is detected.
Here are the possible causes for this:
·Blown fuse
·Short to VPWR in harness or HO2S
·Water in harness connector
·Open VPWR or GND circuit
·Low battery voltage
·Poor electrical connections from PCM to HO2S sensor
·HO2S heater
·PCM

Now the reason I ask what the codes were is that may help in determining what is wrong. If the other codes you had were also O2 heater cicuit codes example P0135, P0155, P0161 then you may need to be looking at something other than the O2's themself and maybe more toward a blown fuse no. 24 (15amp) in the under hood fuse box,wiring harness problem on the voltage side since all four share this one or a bad PCM.

Check engine light and cruise lights came on simultaneously.


Sound like the O2's heater circuit may not be working, that will set a code. I am not a big fan of univeral O2's, too many problems with bad connections and the check engine lights coming back on. You may need to use a OEM type sensor to keep the light off.
