Question about 2004 Chrysler Town & Country

Open Question

Codes: P0032; P0132; and P0135 I have had the Catalytic Converter and the O2 sensor replaced. Within a week, had to replace the O2 sensor again. Within another week there was an issue again. I did some investigation and found out that the wrong Universal Catalytic Converter (Honda/Accura) was put on my vehicle. I have now had the correct Catalytic Converter (CA Emissions) and another O2 sensor put on and within a 1/2 mile the check engine light came back on. I am so ready to drive this van off a cliff. Please help

there are no codes that say replace O2 sensors,or remove converter,Thats just somebody's guessing,When it says O2 sensor that tells the mechanic to look for trouble in that area,wiring or faulty readings,And there are four O2 sensors.

No, it's not time to replace your PCM. It's time to properly diagnose and repair the problem. Most Oxygen sensor codes are not the fault of the oxygen sensor. codes P0132 and P0152 mean that both of your upstream O2 sensor circuits are shorted to voltage. It does not mean that the O2 sensors themselves are bad. The code P0300 is a random misfire code. This does not mean change the spark plugs. This means that several or all of the cylinders are misfiring. This could be due to spark plugs, but you will most likely get a single cylinder code (like P0301 or Po302 etc.) if the spark plugs are getting worn out. This random misfire code is most likely being caused by your shorted oxygen sensor circuits. If they are shoted to voltage they will cause your fuel to run extremely lean (vey little fuel) to the point that it is causing the cylinders to misfire. Code P0300 can have seveal different causes, including a fuel pump getting worn out, am manifold vacuum leak, an intemittent crank sensor signal, etc. When other codes are being set at the same time as a P0300, the other codes need to be diagnosed and repaired first.

P0032"Heated O2 Sensor Circuit High Bank 1 Sensor 1" The ECU detected a high resistance condition in the heater element circuit for the pre-catalytic converter sensor.Probably just need to replace the sensor,but you can check for voltage across two of the wires(see your wiring diagram).

Hi, I have a 96 Jeep Cherokee with straight 6 cyclinder engine.The check engine lights on and Itook get to be put on a machine and the codes readed P0132,P0135,P0300,P0301,and P0420. Could you tell me


p132+ an O2 sensor reading is high bank1,sensor1, p135=O2 Heater circuit is bad, bank1,sensor1.

P300= Random misfires, p301 misfire cylinder1.p302 misfire cylinder2

p420 Bank1 Catalytic converter efficiency failing

What this means is that the Bank1 O2 sensor is either bad or the wiring to it is defective. Check for heat burnthrough on wires. The misfires started randomly and now pinpoint to cylinders 1 and 2.

The Catalytic converter failing because the misfires are clogging it. This can self correct once the cylinders stop misfiring.

Which messed up first is where you start solving this. Replace the O2 sensor, it is fouled out on Bank1. The heater circuit(p135) just makes it work faster and has little effect once you are underway. But high resistence in the O2(p132) means it is coated and ineffective.

There is a problem with firing #1 and #2 sparkplug. Probably the cause for the Catalytic converter plugging. A cracked coil, plug wires, sparkplugs are some causes as well as dirty fuel injectors on those 2 cylinders.

It is a cause and effect situation where 1 part fails and damages another. You need to fix the source of the problem or you will repeat th damage.

I have a code of P0135 and P0030 are these oxygen sensor in a 06 saab 9x-7


The code P0135 is a fault code for the o2 sensor before the catalytic converter.Replace the o2 sensor and then reset the computer and it should be fine afterwards.The check engine light should stay off then.

Code po113,how do i fix it


You have a bad O2 sensor on the left side of the engine (Bank 1)
http://www.obd-codes.com/p0135
The heater in the O2 sensor has failed. Replace the O2 sensor located on the output side of the exhaust manifold between the engine and the catalytic converter closest to the engine.

See this information for other possible causes.

Hi, I have a 1999 Saturn SC2 and my service engine light came on. I did a diagnostic on it and the code showed P1133. The guy at the auto shop told me it's an oxygen sensor, but didn't know if it was the...


First, I wouldn't let that guy work on your car. P1133 is "O2 Sensor Slow Response - Sensor 1" Anybody that has been in the auto repair business for more than a week should know that Sensor 1 is ALLWAYS the FRONT sensor.

Note: O2 sensor codes do not necessarily mean that an O2 sensor needs to be replaced. Most O2 Sensor codes are caused by something other than the O2 Sensor itself. (there are several different possible O2 Sensor codes for your car. P0131, P0132, P0133, P0134, P0138, P0171, P0172, P1133, P1134)

The most likely cause of DTC (Diagnostic TroubleCode) P1133 is contamination of the O2 Sensor. Replacing a contaminated O2 Sensor without repairing the source of the contamination will only result in a repeat repair. It could be caused by bad fuel, improper use of RTV sealant, engine oil or engine coolant. I have seen this caused many times by engine oil leaks that run down the exhaust and clog the holes in the side of the sensor shield. (The sensor must "breathe" to work properly)

Then on the other hand, if your vehicle has a lot of miles on it, the sensor could be just chemically worn out. In any case, the FRONT sensor is the one that is setting the code.

My 96 Chevy Blazer 4X4 failed echeck, due to codes: P0132(bank1, sensor1), P0135(bank1, sensor1), and P0143(bank1, sensor 3). All are O2 sensor codes. What sensors need replaced, and where are they...


Some of your O2 sensors are before the catalytic converter and some are after, based on your description. I've seen some cars that had to have all of the O2 sensors replaced when the exhaust system was replaced.

O2 sensors need a special socket to remove, and are best done when the exhaust is hot, and, also, antiseize compound should be used on the threads with the new O2 sensors.

Be prepared to have an exhaust technician change them out for you in order to get it passed the eCheck.

Good luck on this repair.

Error code p0032 on 2004 dodge caravan. what is the code?


Hi.

P0032 means HO2S Heater Control Circuit High (Bank 1 Sensor 1).

It means high impedance from O2 sensor, check wiring to sensor and replace the sensor.
Check O2 sensor located in bank 1 (cylinder 1 side- see here), and after the catalitic converter (there is also an O2 sensor before cat converter).

Check engine light is on


P0135 02 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 1)
P0136 02 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank I Sensor 2)
check for a blown fuse, if it is blown replace it, if it blows again after engine is started you have either a shorted O2 sensor or the wiring leading to the up stream or down stream sensors.

98 mercury villager OBD I code P0135


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.
Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors.
Since you have already changed out your O2 sensor (as long as you used to OEM replacement and not the "Universal" replacement) you should not have to replace it again. You might check your thermostat to part of the time it takes for the O2 sensor to start switching being based on coolant temp, if your thermostat is not operating properly, it could cause the coolant temp to take longer than what is considered by the ECM to be normal.
