Hope this helps

Bank two are the even cylinders. Follow exhaust manifold on the side. You will find an O2 sensor just after or on the manifold, before the catalytic converter. Then, look after the catalytic and you should find another O2 sensor, this is the one you mention in your post.

Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop that's good with automotive electrical problems . Checking for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes would be a good first step . The GEM - generic electronic module is fords BCM - body control module . There is a door ajar switch located in each door , when a door is open the GEM module detects this an turns on the alarm (chime ,bing or what ever noise yours makes ) Also turns on the little car symbol showing a particular door as being open . You could have a GEM module problem , Or you could go to www.bbbind.com/ Find wiring diagrams an try to trouble shoot this yourself. Go on youtube an watch videos on basic electrical trouble shooting , how to read a wiring diagram . Plus check out some repair videos door ajar switch problems !

Problem with the electronic throttle control .
It should be noted that the ETC system includes a wrench light on the instrument cluster that illuminates when a fault is detected. Faults are also accompanied by DTCS and the "Check Engine Soon" light. Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a reputable ASE certified repair shop .
Overview The Generation II (Gen II) Torque Based Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) is a hardware and software strategy that delivers a transmission output shaft torque (via throttle angle) based on driver demand (pedal position). It utilizes an electronic throttle body, the PCM and a accelerator pedal assembly to control throttle opening and engine torque. The ETC system basically replaces the standard cable operated accelerator pedal, idle air control (IAC) motor, 3-wire throttle position sensor (TPS) and mechanical throttle body .

P0174 OBD-II Trouble Code

Technical Description

System Too Lean (Bank 2)

What does that mean?

Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 2 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 2 is generally the side of the engine that doesn't have cylinder #1. Note: This DTC is very similar to P0171, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time.


You will more than likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a lack of power, detonation (spark knock), and/or a hesitation/surge on acceleration.


A code P0174 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.

There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor.

Possible Solutions

Possible solutions include:

In the vast majority of cases, simply cleaning the MAF sensor does the trick. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling

Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary

Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure

In the transmission. Remove the pan and they are right there. There are 2 shift solenoids, both are the same. I would replace both of them. Replace the filter also. Use the old gasket. Don't use the rubber one that comes with the filter. It leaks.

Best to do this when the engine/transmission are warmed up. Park it on a level surface and, with the engine running, shift into each gear and then put it in Park (emergency brake applied). With the engine running, pull the transmission dipstick out and check the level against the cross-hatch pattern on the dipstick. Just like checking your oil. If it's low, add proper fluid by pouring it into the dipstick tube until the fluid level falls within the cross-hatch pattern. Do this a little at a time so as not to overfill it.
