Only take 3 starts if not 1 start to reset the check engine light after the defective part has been replaced. If you like you can turn the ignition to the on position with engine not running and pull the ECM fuse from the fuse box in the engine compartment on the passenger side for 1 min.

There are 2 ECM fuse and pull them both out and place them back in. Once back in place after turn the ignition keys off for 15 seconds, then on again for 30 seconds for the IAC to reset before starting the engine.

This will reset your ECM and would erase any DTC codes your ECM had in it's history. If your check engine light came on, then there is still an issue and your going to have to get the Ventura re-scanned at Auto Zone.

Bank 1 sensor 2 is the O2 sensor after the Catalytic converter and at worst, your Catalytic converter have gone bad and will need to be replaced.

Good luck and thank you for using fixya.

Which Oxygen Sensor Is It?


There are many inquiries online about which oxygen sensor to change. Oxygen sensor failure codes are very common on a lot of vehicles. With all of today's vehicles having at least two oxygen sensors and many having three or four of them, it can be a little confusing as to which one is causing the problem.

Before we get into which sensor is which, we need to have a little discussion about oxygen sensor fault codes. There are several different types of oxygen sensor fault codes. Here are just some of the most common ones:

P0135 "Oxygen Sensor Heater Circuit Bank1 Sensor 1"
P0141 "Oxygen Sensor Heater Circuit Bank 1 Sensor 2"
P0147 "Oxygen Sensor Circuit Bank 1 Sensor 3"
P0152 "Oxygen Sensor Voltage High Bank 2 Sensor 1"
P0159 "Oxygen Sensor Slow Response Bank 2 Sensor 2"
P0171 "Oxygen Sensor Lean Sensor 1 Bank 1"
P0172 "Oxygen Sensor Lean Sensor 1 Bank 2"
P0174 "Oxygen Sensor Rich Sensor 1 Bank 1"
P0175 "Oxygen Sensor Rich Sensor 1 Bank 2"

There are many more possible oxygen sensor codes, but I only listed these to make my point. Many times the oxygen sensor code is NOT caused by the oxygen sensor itself. "Lean" or "Rich" oxygen sensor codes (i.e. P0171, P0174) are usually caused by something other than the oxygen sensor. Something is wrong, causing the engine to run lean (not enough fuel or too much air) or causing the engine to run rich (too much fuel or not enough air). In these cases, replacing the oxygen sensor will not fix a thing. (That is, unless you are trying to fix your bank account from having too high of a balance!) The new oxygen sensor will just set the same code as the original one. This is because the oxygen sensor is not CAUSING the problem, it is only REPORTING the problem.

High voltage codes (like P0152 above) can be caused by the oxygen sensor wires being shorted to another wire inside the wiring harness. Sometimes these codes are caused by bad grounds where some other component is trying to ground through the oxygen sensor circuit. Again, replacing the oxygen sensor will not fix this! In short, the problem needs to be diagnosed before running out and buying an oxygen sensor.

Just because a fault code has "Oxygen Sensor" or "O2 Sensor" or "O2S" in its description does not necessarily mean that an oxygen sensor needs to be replaced. Many do-it-yourselfers believe that all there is to fixing the car is to hook it to the "magic box", collect the fault codes and replace the parts the computer tells you to replace. There is nothing further from the truth.

Fault codes only point you toward which SYSTEM is failing. The system must be diagnosed to find the CAUSE of the failure. If this is not done properly, it will only result in wasting a bunch of your money. This is what you were trying to avoid by doing it yourself!

So, after reading all of the above, if you think you still want to replace an oxygen sensor, but don't know which one; here is how to figure it out:

Oxygen sensors are always numbered like this:

Bank 1 Sensor 1
Bank 2 Sensor 1
Bank 1 Sensor 2
Bank 2 Sensor 2

Some manufacturers use a kind of shorthand that reads different, but means the same thing:

Sensor 1/1 or O2s 1/1
Sensor 2/1 or O2s 2/1
Sensor 1/2 or O2s 1/2
Sensor 2/2 or O2s 2/2

Bank 1 is always the side of the engine where cylinder #1 is located and, of course, Bank 2 is the opposite side.
On a 4 cylinder engine, there is only one bank and it is always referred to as Bank 1. The exception to the 4 cylinder rule is on certain 4 cylinder engines (specifically, some Toyotas) there are two catalytic converters used. In this case, Bank 1 sensors will still be in the pipe for the catalyst that is connected to cylinder #1 and Bank 2 sensors will be in the other one.

Sensor 1 is always the "upstream" sensor (the one located BEFORE the catalytic converter).
Sensor 2 is always the "downstream" sensor (the one that is located AFTER the catalytic converter).
Sensor 3 refers to the ONLY "downstream" sensor where there are two sensors before the catalyst and only one after the catalyst. On very few vehicles the reference to this reads "Bank 1 Sensor 3".

If you do not know where cylinder #1 is, then you need to get a diagram of the firing order for your engine. Just post a question on FixYa.com and make sure you give the YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, and ENGINE SIZE of your vehicle and one or more of our experts will be happy to tell you how to find cylinder #1.

How do I fix P0300,P0301,P0303, P0305,P1313,P1316& P1646?2 weeks ago,codes were minus P1313&P1316 with P0057 added in.replaced bank2 downstream sensor,P0057 gone but 2 new codes popped up????


the engine managment system on this car treats each bank as 2 seperate engines bank 1 and bank 2 the fault codes you have got are emission related. diagnosis is not easy because the ecu will use the other bank to compensate and alter its fueling etc to reduce emissions. the only way to sort it out is to put it on suitable diagnostic equipment and monitor live data ie. lambda sensors/ catalyst efficiency hope this helps

Location of bank 1 sensor 2


bank 1 means that bank that cylinder 1 resides.
no engine option stated. so......
sensor 2 is the rear sensor, or for FWD cars
that sensor that is behind #1 or more tech savy
furthers from exhaust valves or behind the CAT.
no , not Garfield the catalysts .

on a V6 there are 2 banks, if an I4, then there is no second bank.
so the I4 only has 1 bank and its #1
on a V6, bank one is on the side that has the off set front cylinder
this is #1, the offset is to front of engine, or closes to the damper pulley and waterpump or cam chain or belt.
V6 and v8 have one cylinder that site farther forward than the other bank.. due to rods cant sit on same place engine.

I have a 99 chevy 1500 4x4 5.3 l got code po 332 put new ones in same code saws low voilts


This condition may be the result of corrosion of the rear bank knock sensor due to water intrusion into the sensor cavity. This condition is more apparent on vehicles in which customers frequently wash the engine compartment. Replace the rear bank knock sensor and build a dam (wall) around the sensor using RTV to divert water away from the sensor. Also, check for corrosion on the connector plug. Visually inspect the wiring going to the Rear Bank Knock Sensor for damage. After you have replaced the sensor, and checked for damages, have the code reset and see if it comes back.

This is Bank 1 (closer to the dash panel) Sensor 2 (located after the catalytic converter).

---
Note: A malfunctioning front oxygen sensor may cause fuel trim codes to set.
  1. Several Diagnostic Trouble Codes use specific terminology to refer to sensor location. The illustration and key below explain the following terms:
  2. Engine BANK Bank 1 is closer to the dash panel, (also referred to as RH or right hand). Bank 2 is closer to the radiator, (also referred to as LH or left hand).
  3. UP Refers to Sensor 1 or "front sensor". It is located closer to the exhaust manifold and before the catalytic converter.
  4. DOWN Refers to Sensor 2 or "rear sensor." It is located after the catalytic converter.
  5. The following examples show how to interpret oxygen sensor terminology:
  6. B1/S1 = Bank 1/Sensor 1 = Dash panel side, BEFORE the catalyst or "upstream"
  7. B2/S2 = Bank 2/Sensor 2 = Radiator side, AFTER the catalyst or "downstream"

Where is the bank 1 sensor 2 o2 sensor for a 96 chevy s10 v-6?


Oxygen sensors are numbered by which bank of cylinders they serve. Bank 1 is the left or drivers side bank of cylinders on the 4.3L which has the odd numbered cylinders 1,3, and 5. Bank 2 is the right or passenger side bank of cylinders numbered 2, 4, and 6. The Bank 1 Sensor 1 would be the sensor for the left hand side of the engine AHEAD of the converter. Bank 1 Sensor 2 is the sensor for the left hand side bank of cylinders BEHIND the converter.

Pluged in the computer to my truck and it said there is a o2 sensor malfunction of bank 2. how do i find it? also it says the truck is running to lean. is this cause by the o2 sensor?


Yes, this too lean runing engine is due of oxygen O2 sensor malfunction. Must be replaced with new one. You can find it very simply on bank 2. The bank 1 of V8 engine is the cylinder bank on the right (passenger's) side of the car, (for Left Hand Drive vehicles). So the bank 2 is placed on the left (driver's) side of the car, (for Left Hand Drive vehicles). The bad oxygen O2 sensor is fitted on bank 2, so you can replace it.

Please rate my response. Thanks!
