Yes it will. Bank 1 sensor 1 Heater control circuit high input....in other words the heater element the o2 sensor need to warm up quickly is defective. New sensor will sort it out. The fault will have no adverse effect on the car other than the sensor not fully operational until the heat from the exhaust warms it up. b1s1 is the sensor between the exhaust manifold and the cat.

Mine is a P 0032 and P 0038


upstream and downstream oxygen sensor heater voltages are too high, possible causes are
- bad o2 sensors
- shorted o2 wiring
- bad pcm
clear codes and determine if codes are hard(current)
if they are, unplug sensors, clear codes and re-scan to see if p0032 and p0038 appear.(there will be 2 to 4 other codes generated)if p0032 and p0038 are gone from the list, change both o2 sensors.
if p0032 and p0038 are still in the list, it is either wiring or pcm issue, use a meter to check for short from o2 connector to ground, with pcm unplugged..
Good luck, Rob

I have a 2006 town and country limited FWD 3.8 engine and got the following codes p0138 and p0032 i changed the oxygen sensors on the bottom and the oxygen sensor on the top next to the manifold and now i...


Code 138 was for bank one sensor two having a high reading. This is the sensor after the catalytic converter on the side with cylinder one.
Code 32 is for the heater circuit in the O2 sensor for bank one sensor one in front of the cat.
If you replaced both sensors on bank one and code 32 is coming back, there is a problem with the heater circuit going to the sensor.
The sensor uses a heater to heat up the exhaust gas while the engine is warming up.

Error code p0032 on 2005 dodge grand caravan


Hi there:

P0032 - Oxygen (A/F) Sensor Heater Control Circuit High (Bank 1 Sensor 1)
A P0032 DTC (diagnostic trouble code) refers to the O2 sensor (oxygen sensor) located on Bank 1 in front of the catalytic converter. There is also an oxygen sensor behind the converter which is Sensor #2.



This O2 sensor #1 may also be refered to as an air/fuel ratio sensor since on some vehicles it is. The sensor detects the amount of oxygen in the exhaust gas compared to the outside air and then vehicle's computer adjusts the air/fuel ratio going into the engine. The sensor is less effective when the exhaust gas temperature is low, so it includes a heater which is activated to help get better readings from the O2 sensor. Essentially this P0032 code means that the resistance of the heater circuit is higher than normal. In some cases, that resistance level must be higher than 10 A to trigger the DTC code.


Note, this code is very similar in nature to P0031, P0051, and P0052


Potential Symptoms:
Most likely you'll not notice any symptoms other than the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp, a.k.a. the check engine light) will illuminate.


Causes: A P0032 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:
A short in the heater circuit in the sensor
A failed O2 sensor heater
Wiring/connectors broken/frayed leading to sensor and/or relay
Failed PCM/ECM


Possible Solutions: To fix a P0032 DTC code, you'll need to do a proper diagnosis. To do that, you'll want to inspect the wiring and connectors leading to the sensor. Also if equipped with a heater relay and fuse, you'll want to check those as well. Use a digital volt ohm meter to:


check for 12 volts at the heater circuit feed (hint: unplug the sensor and check at the wiring connector to do this measurement)
check the ground circuit for continuity
measure the resistance of the heater circuit (done on the sensor itself)
measure the resistance and voltage of the wiring
Refer to a service manual for the correct specifications (volts, ohms) for your vehicle. On some Toyota vehicles this code is triggered when the resistance of the heater circuit is above 10 A.


With that said, a common fix for this DTC is to replace the air/fuel (O2 oxygen) sensor #2 on bank 1.


Please keep in mind that OEM (original equipment) replacement sensors are recommended (from the dealer). Aftermarket sensors can be less reliable and of poorer quality (not always, but more often). There's also a chance that replacement parts for the P0032 code may also fall under a federal emissions warranty (check with your dealer to see if it's covered).


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.

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).

P0032


This means you have a problem with your oxygen sensor,or circuit.Bank1 sensor 1 is the O2 on the drivers side before the converter.Check for any burnt or broken wires,if ok,then check the sensor
