Hi! PO132 will mean O2 (oxygen) sensor failure. You will need to replace the O2 sensor rather than doing some remedies like some mechanics do Hope this helps and have a good one!

Thanks for using FixYa. The error code P0132 means sensor circuit high voltage on Bank 1 Sensor 1. The check engine light is on because ECM (Control Module) detected a fault with your car's system. ECM has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. You'll need to get the codes checked from a nearby dealer/mechanic. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

My Honda Civic 2002 EX its manual, crank but won't start, check all light, battery, everything I can think of but won't start, what could be the cause.

There could be many things wrong but you will need to find out what trouble codes are set on it as any starting point.

I have a 2003 Honda civic and it has a PO132 code in it how do I fix it ??

Most likely there is a problem with the upstream oxygen sensor. I would bet you don't have a $3000 scan tool or a good multi meter so your only option besides bringing it into a shop to have it checked, is to try replacing the part , clear the code, and see if the light comes back on.

2002 honda civic SRS light on how do i reset it?

The SRS light comes on when there is a fault detected with your seat belts. You will need to scan the SRS system to get the trouble codes. you will need a high end scan tool for this. Once you know the codes you will have a much better idea of what to do next.

The check engine light is on in my 1998 honda civic and the code is p1339 i have replaced everything that could be replaced except o2 sensors. how would i get the check engine light off?

If you have fixed the problem, the easiest thing to get the light out is to have someone hook up a scan tool to it and reset the computer. If the problem is truly fixed the light will eventually go out on it's own after the car has completed the proper drive cycle. This should just naturally happen after you drive the car awhile.

2002 Honda Civic - In town driving when suddenly felt a drop in speed/rpm -emission control light comes on and the car will not goi over go over 28 mph - Pulled over and shut engine off for about 20...

Recommend you have the car scanned to pull the trouble code history. You'll want to know what the car thought was wrong to see if you can avoid same problem in the future. Many parts stores have a free scanning service (Autozone, Advance, etc.)

I have a 2000 honda civic hx,the check engine is on,i replaced the timing belt,distributor,spark plugs and wires too and the check engine light is still on.the car has lost power,consumes more fuel and it...

What is the trouble code the engine light is telling you to check?

Buy a low cost OBD2 code reader and check the code(s) yourself.

The OBD2 plug is always with-in 3 feet of the steering column.

Find it and plug your tester in with the key on to retrieve the codes.

Once you have the code(s) that/those item(s) first.
