Errror code P0420 honda Civic 99

I recommend having the code cleared professionally or with a scan tool and see if the light comes back on. The secondary sensor is usually located on the opposite side of the catalytic converter, it's there to monitor the cat efficiency. The problem may be fixed, you just need to have the code cleared first. Let me know if this helps, thanks Matt.

Honda 1997 civic ex check engine light is on message: bank 1 sensor 2; heater circuit malfunction

that is the sensor that is behind the catalytic converter, it just measures effiicency of the cat itself-the sensor has a wire that pre-heats the sensor so that it goes 'on line' sooner, it has failed or is failing-the easiest thing to do is replace the O2 sensor, or you could ignore it until you have to go through emissions, and replace it a few days prior to inspection-but if you do that, and something else malfunctions that your check engine light would warn you about, you wouldn't know it-so it's probably just best to replace it when you can, in the near future. It will not affect at all how the car runs though.

The check engine light is on on my 1998 Honda Civic DX, does it merely need to be reset using a code or is there something else. O2 sensor was replaced right before I bought the vehicle

The check engine light (yellow light) comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system u will seldom feel the car engine run any different, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

How do I reconnect the check engine light. Is it just a bulb?

If your check engine light comes on then it will definitely not pass.There is no such thing as a code that says your sensors are bad. I could help you out more if i had the codes.If your sensors were bad you would get a heater failure code.But then again it could be anything.You need that code.

Code PO131

Code PO131 is O2 sensor circuit low voltage , bank 1, sensor 1. That sensor I would say is the one in the exhaust manifold. I would check voltage to the sensor from the computer. If the voltage is not 5 volts, then it could be a computer problem or a wiring problem. I have seen factory wiring and connectors give a voltage problem. Check for a damaged or burnt, pinched wire. You need to know for sure that the voltage is correct to the sensor. Intermittent problems are hard to trace , but patience and knowledge helps.

My engine light won't go out even after sensors have been replace

remove brackett from under intake manifold to block you will see a gray or green plug look real close and you will see a bare wire or a wire that has been pinched real bad this wire controls heater circuit for the o2 sensors also check fuse # 15.there is a tsb from honda on this problem
