P0042 : Heated oxygen sensor (HO2S)bank1, heater control -circuit malfunction.

The code is telling you one of the oxygen sensors or the wiring to it is faulty.

The system service warning appears when I accelerate hard over 3500 revs, once Ive changed up the engine hits a big flat spot, it also shows fault code 042 when the odometer reset is pressed. The car runs fine apart from that, anybody help.
Thanks

    My dad has a D5 XC90 185bhp model that has done 70k miles and he has the same problem and the same code, check the swirl flap actuator arm, the ball joint socket has worn loose and the ball joint has came free resulting in the swirl flaps become inopritive, I have purchased a kit from Volvo to fix this for 6 pounds so hopefully I can fit it myself or modifie the existing part to work, if not I hear Volvo want 500 pounds to fix it

WHAT DOES IN02 CODE MEAN ?


Probably just dealer getting their hands in your pockets for an inspection that is set to a particular mileage amount (like 150,000 miles) ? :)

To know for sure the code get a code scanner. For about the price of an inspection or code read (though some garages will do for free) get you own code reader. :)

How do i get rid/ reset message xc90 "transmission service urgent" i have already taken to volvo dealer about six months ago. they could not pin point issue on diagnostic. Cheers


You first have to retrieve fault codes from your computer network then you have to diagnose the systems/circuits indicated by the fault codes to determine what the cause of the failure is, then you must repair the system/circuit at fault and then reset the computer system. If the dealer cannot do this, I don't know who can. Did they tell you what fault codes they were getting? If so, we can look up the troubleshooting charts for those codes as well as do a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) search to see if this is a known problem with a known fix. Without the codes, your guess is as good as mine.

I just purchased a 2005 Porsche Boxster with 13000 miles from a Chevy dealer. They supposedly did a basic service before delivering the car. On my way home I noticed a message on the dash that said...


hi,

Try this procedure. Porsche can be hit or miss with reset procedures. Sometime a Porsche scan tool is needed.

1. Enter the vehicle and make sure that all doors are closed.

2. Push the odometer reset button while turning the ignition key on.

3. Continue holding down the odometer reset button for approximately 10 seconds until the "Service Reset" message appears in the information center.

4. Release the odometer reset button and press the reset button on the bottom of the wiper stalk.

5. It may take a few attempts with this procedure.

6. If the light is not reset, then a Porsche compatible scan tool will be required to reset it.

Reset after oil change


AnswerEasy get an oil change at a garage and have them erase the code or do the oil change your self and then disconnect the neg battary terminal. Easier AnswerOn the console, where the oil change light is on, scroll through the items until you get to oil life. Once at oil life, hold the reset button and it will say Engin oil new? Press reset again and this should set you oil life back to 100% without needing to disconnect your battery

Complete Answer
1- Turn on the ignition without starting the car
2- You will get warning messages on the display (including the "change oil soon" or "oil change required" message) press reset for each warning till you get the Odometer displayed.
3- press the setup button until "press reset for system check" appears
4- hit the reset button (need to do this fairly quickly, if you end up back at the odometer go back to step 3)
5- the system will scroll through the different things that are wrong that it has detected, you should go to "oil life XX%, Hold Rest New" message first if nothing else more major has been detected. When on this message hold the reset down unit you get the message "if new oil hold reset".
6 - hold the reset down till the message "oil life set to 100%" appears (note have seen different wording in some models)
7 - system should scroll through any remaining messages and then return to the odometer reading
Switch the car off and on and confirm that the message does not reappear. Have seen some instances where will not reset, if so take to your dealer.

Engine service required message


If you want to reset the light/message:

Close all the doors, booth, hood etc. hatches,

1. Make sure you have Trip odometer 1 (T1) selected.
2. Turn the ignition key to 'I'-position.
3. Press the trip odometer reset - keep it down.
4. Turn the key to 'II'.
5. Wait till the service light blinks a few times or you hear a 'beep'.
6.Release the trip odometer reset.
7. Turn the key back to '0' - service light is reset.

If this doesn't work, try:
a) 2. before 3. then continue as above
b) 5. Wait until the previous mileage appears again to the trip odometer.
c) 7. before 6.

You can reset the service counter at any time. Do not forget to service your car!
