Question about 1996 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

I have a 96 Explorer. The engine light would come

I have a 96 Explorer. The engine light would come on periodically, the code for the bank 2 front 02 sensor came up. it has been replaced. The code continues to show up. but the real problem is baffling. the Engine would occasionally not start, and I kid you not, I could push it 6 inches and it would start. this went on for a couple months. then pushing it didn't work. I plugged in my code reader and couln't get a link, unplugged several times and finally linked, erased the same code and it started. the next morning it wouldn't start, and the code reader will not link. Is this a pcm problem?

What is p2197

This code means that the O2 sensor is bad. This is the first 02 sensor on bank 2, of the engine. It is stuck on a lean setting, and needs replaced. Bank 1 refers to the side of the engine that has the #1 cylinder. Bank 2 is the opposite side of the engine. Good-Day! If you have any questions on this, Im sure any auto parts store will help you out Auto-zone Etc, They will even scan a problem code for free, as long as the check engine light is on.

Ford explorer p0059 code

P0059 .02 sensor heater control circuit draw. 02 heater resistance What this means is the 02 is shorted or open or ECM . 2nd bank sensor one. What concern me is rough accleration,either the ECM subsituted a value to protect the catalytic or you do have a engine miss and P0059 under rationality ,logic appeared.I have to say your solution is to replace 02 sensor on the second bank.To find the second bank stand in front of the vehicle the valve cover closest to the front is bank one the valve cover fartherst from the front is bank two.

I have a 96 k1500 chevy truck and have 4 codes that pop up on the check engine light randomly. Codes are ckp A signal intermitent, cmp out of range, idle contol rpm to high, O2 bank 1 sensor 1 insuficent...

O2 sensor cross talk bank to bank irregular, change 02 sensor(s).

Sounds like Idle air control sensor bad, All of your codes interact, I would start with 02 sensor.

I would locate a Tech II and run a diagnosis, eliminate guess work.

Engine light was on and engine idles rough.

these O2 sensors are cat convertor check sensors. id be checking cat convertors and hopefully you should try replacing if not all ready is the front bank 2, O2 sensor
if you have scanner can you see fuel trims in data display to confirm high fuel trim only on bank 2 either +-5 or more indicates problem and if bank 2 sensor 2 has fixed high 700mv reading cat no good(warm idling)

Check-engine light on

P1132 is front 02 bank 1 and P1152 is front 02 bank 2
This codes indicate a rich condition. I would check for a dirty air filter or a dirty MAF sensor.

I have error codes p0156 p0161

  Check the wire harness near the top of the engine in the rear. They were good for rubbing through on the trans fill tube bracket. Judging by the code you have 4 sensors. you would be interested in the drivers side rear sensor.
