I think you could use this manual method instead.. My nephew use it to repair my car and it's totally repaired now. Here's the website he bought it from. www.reliable-store.com
wiring diagram/ electrical
repair instructions including removal, installation, assembly
parts info, pcv, service instructions
etc. a lot more
Oxygen Sensor Error (Lean Condition Indicated)
The ECM receives a signal from the O2 sensor based on the amount of oxygen in the exhaust. If there is excess oxygen in the exhaust, it is in lean condition and the O2 sensor voltage will be low. The ECM uses this information to adjust the amount of fuel delivered to each cylinder. Fault Code Description
The 1137 OBD2 code is typically an o2 sensor problem as you have indicated, first I would make sure your replacing the correct o2 sensor as there are two (upstream and downstream), although it is possible that a bad o2 sensor could keep your engines fuel injection system from delivering the fuel to your engine, in my experience having a bad sensor typically results in a check engine light and running with a less than optimum fuel air mixture, it does not typically keep your vehicle from starting. If your still getting the 1137 error code after replace the o2 sensor and checking its connecting wires I would start looking for a bigger issue.
Appears it is an Oxygen sensor error, they are located in the exhaust system, in the v6, that code indicates the second bank (but unsure which bank that is) Ideally you need to take the car in for service, or at least inspect the Oxygen sensors, the code indicates that teh heater element has failed.
Stop at auto Zone or Advance Auto parts and ask them to use their scanner to identify the fault code. That will tell you what needs to be fixed. As a Guess I would say the O2 Sensor but that is just a guess.
Take the vehicle to any auto parts store that offers to read the fault codes with a scanner for free and find out what that code is. If it shows Upstream or Downstream O2 sensor replace the O2 Sensor. There is a catch, dodge had an issue in the 2000 - 2004. The ECM will show a fault code that indicates the Catalytic converter is faulty. This is actually a faulty Downstream O2 Sensor. If you get a Catalytic converter fault code replace the O2 sensor first if you still have the problem then replace the converter.
I assume your Vehicle is an Audi/ VW as this is a VW fault code. The o2 sensors measure the oxygen in the exhaust gases and compare it to the out side air, there by working out how efficiently the the fuel is been burnt. The engine control unit will use this and other information to adjust the fuel quantity being injected. The catalytic converter breaks down certain gases in the exhaust fumes to comply with emission regulations. Some vehicles have an upper o2 sensor [before the cat] and a lower [after the cat]. The readings of the o2 sensors is compared and should be within a certain range. If not a fault will be stored in the memory. The Catalytic converter itself may not be working correctly due to contamination or the baffle may be loose[ usually indicated by a rattle in the exhaust]. One or both o2 sensors could be contaminated with carbon and not giving accurate readings. Also check other silencers for blockages.
If you did not get an o2 sensor code or you didn`t get the codes read then I would not be replacing anything.The light is on for a reason and in order to find out why you have to get the codes read.Auto Zone or most parts stores will do this for free.Save your self some money and before you buy and replace the o2 sensor make sure that is the problem.There are 2 o2 sensors on this vehicle.Hope this helps.Good luck.
