Maybe a bad sensor, put a Motorcraft brand O2 sensor in.

Fords are bad about vacum leaks, check all vacum hoses repair as needed.Vacum leak will give an o2 sensor code.

I have the check engine light on and the scan read P0135 error - what is this?


P0135 code is: Oxygen O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1, Sensor 1)

This code refers to the front oxygen sensor on Bank 1.

The heated circuit in the oxygen sensor decreases time needed to enter closed loop. As the O2 heater reaches operating temperature, the oxygen sensor responds by switching according to oxygen content of the exhaust surrounding it. The ECM tracks how long it takes for the oxygen sensor to begin switching. It the ECM determines (based on coolant temp) that too much time elapsed before the oxygen sensor began operating properly, it will set P0135.

Symptoms: You will likely notice poor fuel economy the illumination of the MIL.

Causes: A code P0135 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: O2 Heater element resistance is high Internal short or open in the heater element O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance open or short to ground in the wiring harness.

Possible Solutions: Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor)

Why the codes po125 & po135 &po155 keep coming back?


Hi there:

DTC P0125 - Insufficient Coolant Temperature For Closed Loop Fuel Control

The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
If the code comes back, the problem is likely going to be the result of the above causes (faulty thermostat, faulty ECT sensor, or a low coolant level).


DTC P0135 - Oxygen O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1, Sensor 1)
or
DTC P0155 - 02 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 2 Sensor 1)

A code P0135 and P0155 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • O2 Heater element resistance is high
  • Internal short or open in the heater element
  • O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance
  • open or short to ground in the wiring harness

In order to solve just...
  • Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors
  • Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor)

    Has any one had problems with bosh oxagen sensor not working properly


    Hi there:
    Are you buy same or OE part replacement according with the Hyundai part number catalogue? This is important. Keep in midn that you need reset or delete all previous code stored in the car computer.


    DTC P0131 - Oxygen O2 Sensor Circuit Low Voltage (Bank 1, Sensor 1)
    Essentially the same as P0136 and P0137, a P0131 code refers to the first oxygen sensor on Bank 1. P0131 means the O2 oxygen sensor's voltage remained low for longer than 2 minutes. This, is interpreted by the ECM as a low voltage condition and sets the MIL. Bank 1 Sensor 1 is located in front of the catalytic converter.


    There may be no visible symptoms to the driver, other than the MIL (Check Engine / Service Engine Soon) illumination.


    A code P0131 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
    - Faulty o2 oxygen sensor
    - Short to voltage on O2 signal circuit
    - High resistance or open on O2 signal circuit


    Possible Solutions:
    - Replace faulty sensor
    - Repair short, open, or high resistance on o2 signal circuit


    Now, about DTC P0135 - Oxygen O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1, Sensor 1)


    A code P0135 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
    - O2 Heater element resistance is high
    - Internal short or open in the heater element
    - O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance
    - open or short to ground in the wiring harness


    Possible Solutions
    Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors
    Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor)


    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.

    What is diagnostic procedures for DTC p0135 & p0141


    Oxygen Sensor problems... P0135 (Bank 1, Sensor 1) and P0141 (Bank 1, Sensor 2)

    This code refers to the front oxygen sensor on Bank 1. The heated circuit in the oxygen sensor decreases time needed to enter closed loop. As the O2 heater reaches operating temperature, the oxygen sensor responds by switching according to oxygen content of the exhaust surrounding it.

    The ECM tracks how long it takes for the oxygen sensor to begin switching. It the ECM determines (based on coolant temp) that too much time elapsed before the oxygen sensor began operating properly, it will set P0135.

    Symptoms: You will likely notice poor fuel economy the illumination of the MIL.

    Internal short or open in the heater element

    Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors
    Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor)



    P0141 - O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1, Sensor 2)
    This code means that the heated circuit in the oxygen sensor on bank 1 decreases time needed to enter closed loop. As the O2 heater reaches operating temperature, the oxygen sensor responds by switching according to oxygen content of the exhaust surrounding it. The ECM tracks how long it takes for the oxygen sensor to begin switching. It the ECM determines (based on coolant temp) that too much time elapsed before the oxygen sensor began operating properly, it will set P0141.

    Symptoms: You will likely notice poor fuel economy the illumination of the Check Engine Light.

    Causes: A code P0141 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
    open or short to ground in the wiring harness
    O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance
    O2 heater element resistance is high
    Internal short or open in the heater element

    Note: Typically a failed catalytic converter does not cause this code. You're more likely to see a P0420 code for a failed converter.

    Possible Solutions:
    Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor)
    Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors

    My 1998 chevy suburban K1500 with 160k miles failed emmissions test because of a P0135 code (O2sensor in bank 1, sensor 1 malfunction) and the MIL on. All emmissions levels were within spec, and only...


    check the connector on some chevys they go bad i have replaced them before so try a new connector or maybe that the wire got burned with the exaust pipe or even disconnected ?? good luck.

    Hi, Ineed asist, my car have two codes PO135 and PO1131 my car is ford ranger 1998 thanks for help mi


    the code P0135 is for high resistance or short in wiring harness or oxygen sensor bank 1, bank 1 is the bank with cylinder number 1, check the harness wiring to the O2 sensor if all is ok you should replace the O2 sensor, the P1131(bank 1 lean) code is more than likely a resulting code from the P0135. Let me know if this helps

    WHICH O2 SENSOR HAS THE HEATER CIRCUIT IN IT BEFORE OR AFTER THE CATALYST


    Hi.
    The Oxigen sensor are in diferent kind.
    1 -- With a single wire. " is only oxigen sensor"
    2 -- With 2 wires " is only oxigen sensor"
    3 -- With 3 wires " Is oxigen and heater sensor"
    4 -- With 4 wires " is oxigen sensor and heater sensor.
    5 -- with 6 wires " is oxigen, heater A/F sensor" normally Nissan)

    OK........Your question.
    Depend of the year of your car.
    But all the car they are Bank 1 or single bank. Engine in line
    4 cyl . or 6 cyl. And are identified sensor 1 bank 1 and sensor 2 bank 1. S11 or S21.
    But all the Engines in V are bank 1 and bank 2.
    Sensor 1 bank 1, sensor 2 bank 1, S11 or S21.
    Sensor 1 bank 2, sensor 2 bank 2, S12 or S22.
    Sensor one is alway before catalystic.
    Sensor two is alway after catalystic.

    If you have problen with the oxigen sensor you need to put a scanner to see the number of code, The number of code will give the especific sensor that you need to replace.
    The code can be heater or oxigen. and can be refer to a the same sensor.

    I hope this information work for youu.
    Thank you for use fixya.
