Question about 1997 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Have a 97 Stratus with a 2.0, alternator is good, new battery, showing code for O2 sensor and 47 - which states voltage to low. Has drained battery, jump car and will start but as soon as I take the jumper cables off it stalls. Any ideas?

The alternator is not good.Check the negative battery cable for corrosion. The o2 sensor is probably shot. It would run if the alternator was good.

HELP! 2005 Dodge Stratus 2.4L SXT Stalls Out with OBD codes P0038 P0032 P0700.


Check fuse 13, which provides the field voltage. Also check the 120 amp fuse link for the charge wire.

Oxygen sensor bank 01 code p138


Hi there:
DTC P0138 - O2 Oxygen Sensor Circuit High Voltage (Bank1, Sensor2)
The Heated Oxygen Sensor (2) located rear of catalytic converter produces an output signal relative to oxygen storage capacity of catalytic converter. Ho2S 2 signal is less active than signal produced by front oxygen sensor. This code sets when HO2 Sensor voltage is greater than 999 mV for more than 2 minutes (time depends on model. Could be as high as 4 minutes)

There may be no noticeable symptoms except for MIL illumination. Possible high fuel pressure can over rich the system.

A code P0138 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty O2 sensor
Short to battery voltage in O2 sensor signal circuit
High fuel pressure (not as likely)

Here are some potential solutions:
Replace O2 sensor
Repair short to battery voltage in o2 sensor signal circuit

Check it; 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.

Hi-Failed inspection at Motor Vehicle Code PO160 (2001 Nissan Maxima). Car runs fine- no dash lights on. Left Rear Oxygen Sensor? Cost to fix or rigg it? Must get this car passed. Thanks in advance,...


CausesPotential causes of an P0160 code include:
  • Holes in exhaust near post cat o2 sensor
  • Bad Bank 2, position 2, o2 sensor
  • Wiring problem, melted harness, broken connectors, etc.
  • Bad PCM
Possible SolutionsIt's always best to do a visual inspection of the exhaust system first. Look for holes near o2 sensors or wiring harnesses coming in contact with exhaust components. Repair as necessary.
1. Start the engine and allow it to reach operating temperature. Using a scan tool, observe the Bank 2 position 2 o2 sensor. If it isn't moving at all this doesn't necessarily mean that anythings wrong. Post cat o2 sensors often switch very little. Increase the engine RPM to a fast idle and then recheck the sensor voltage reading. If it starts switching now, the sensor may be sluggish and/or intermittently going "dormant". Replacing the sensor at this point would be a good idea. Visually check the o2 sensor for contaminates, etc. If you suspect it's contaminated with coolant or oil, replace it. But, if it still isn't responding after increasing engine RPM, turn off the engine and unplug the 2/2 o2 sensor. With KOEO (key on engine off) check that there is 12 Volts battery voltage and a good ground to the o2 sensor heater element. If the heater element has no battery voltage it can cause the o2 sensor to be sluggish and not switch properly which can cause a P0160.
So, diagnose that problem first(there will usually be other codes present). If there is power and ground to the heater element check that the sensor ground is present. If it is, connect a jumper wire between the sensor ground and signal wire. Now the 2/2 o2 sensor reading should be low. If so, replace the Bank 2 position 2 o2 sensor. If, after connecting the jumper wire, the o2 sensor reading still remains "stuck", check for wiring problems, harness contacting exhaust components, or broken connectors. Repair as necessary. Then recheck. If you can find no wiring problems and the o2 sensor reading on the scan tool doesn't change after installing the jumper wire, recheck at the PCM connector. It may be necessary to clip the signal wire near the PCM in a location that will be easy to repair. If it now shows a low voltage reading, then you know beyond a doubt that there is a wiring problem. At this point clipping the offending wire out of the harness and running a new one may be your best bet. But If it still shows no change, the PCM may be at fault.

I have a 97 Plymouth Grand Voyager with a 3.3L and I have 3 codes. the codes are P0117, P1493, and P0137. I have talked to the dealership and they think it is the PCM, but want me to come in for a...


P0117 is coolant level voltage low.
P1493 is Ambient/ Battery Temp sensor input voltage too low.
P0137 is O2 Sensor Circuit Low Voltage Bank 1 Sensor 2.

I would check the battery voltage and connections first, reset the codes and read off the first error code as it appears if it does.

Not absolutely sure on the codes given. You can buy a Haynes or Chilton Manual at most auto parts stores for the vehilce. $20-$30. For a 1984-1995 Caravan the following codes are:
Code 12 = Number of key-ons since last fault or since fault(s) were erased. Battery to controller disconnected within last 50 to 100 ign key on's.
Code 24 = Throttle Position Sensor low voltage.
Code 34 = Speed control solenoid circuit. An open or shorted condition in the speed control vent or vacuum solenoid circuits,
Code 47 = Charging System too low. Battery voltage inut below target charging during engine operations. And no significant change in voltage during active test of altenator output.
Code 53 = Internal controller failure. Internal engine controller fault condition detected.
Code 55 = Completion of Codes.
Code 51 & Code 52 = O2 Sensor problems.
Buy the book to verify and compare.

1992 Ford F150 shows 12 trouble codes and all say too low voltage of cirquit not complete. Will start if you floor it check engine light stays on and runs really really rich. Quit having problem for 2-3...


Put on a TPS switch for the starting problem and the rich mixture problem.

Low voltage on all sensors would mean a bad battery, voltage regulator in the alternator or bad primary wiring.

The bad primary wiring would also mean the battery and chassis ground wires as well as the hot wires.

The sensors can work on a lower voltage and the resistance is variable. The variations is what makes them work properly. You would blow out some sensors with 12 volts.

Remember to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes to wipe out old error codes. They stay in memory and you may have fixed something 20 starts ago and not know it.

Also it is good to clean under the airhorn and replace the gasket. This area will cause EGR errors and flow errors if it is dirty.
