DTC P2097 Post Catalyst Fuel Trim System High Limit Bank 1
Circuit Description
The wide band heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) measures the amount of oxygen in the exhaust system and provides more information than the switching style HO2S. The wide band sensor consists of an oxygen sensing cell, an oxygen pumping cell, and a heater. The exhaust gas sample passes through a diffusion gap between the sensing cell and the pumping cell. The engine control module (ECM) supplies a voltage to the HO2S and uses this voltage as a reference to the amount of oxygen in the exhaust system. An electronic circuit within the ECM controls the pump current through the oxygen pumping cell in order to maintain a constant voltage in the oxygen sensing cell. The ECM monitors the voltage variation in the sensing cell and attempts to keep the voltage constant by increasing or decreasing the amount of current flow, or oxygen ion flow, to the pumping cell. By measuring the amount of current required to maintain the voltage in the sensing cell, the ECM can determine the concentration of oxygen in the exhaust. The HO2S voltage is displayed as a lambda value. A lambda value of 1 is equal to a stoichiometric air fuel ratio of 14.7:1. Under normal operating conditions, the lambda value will remain around 1. When the fuel system is lean, the oxygen level will be high and the lambda signal will be high or more than 1. When the fuel system is rich, the oxygen level will be low, and the lambda signal will be low or less than 1. The ECM uses this information to maintain the correct air/fuel ratio.
Fuel trim biasing is used by the ECM to keep the post catalyst HO2S voltage within a range of 580-665 mV as possible. This allows optimal catalyst efficiency under light load conditions, such as at idle or a steady cruise. The ECM constantly monitors how lean or rich the fuel trim bias is commanded. If the ECM detects that the fuel trim bias is commanded rich for more than a calibrated amount, DTC P2097 or P2099 sets.

in most vehicles they use a steel wire to connect the turning of the key-ignition with the shifting lever. if this cable is broken or out of adjustment, it could cause a problem like that. just an idea.

P2097 engine light on


P2097 code has two fault locations. 1) post catalytic converter fuel trim (FT), bank 1 - too rich. possible cause Catalytic converter. 2) Heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) 1,bank 1 range/ performance- circuit low. if it's running fine. probably just need to put an oxygen sensor in it.

P2097 undefined code what is it


it is for the "post catalytic" #2 O2 sensor reading "high limit" or rich. check that the exhaust system is not partly plugged up or has a dent in the pipes somewhere downstream of the catalytic convertor.

P2097 Error code in 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan, which O2 Sensor?


actually there are 4 sensors. one on each exhaust manifold and then as you said one prior and aft the catalytic convertor. this is saying it is reading too rich a reading. check the condition of your spark plugs. you need to pin point the reason. chances are it is not the o2 sensor. happy holidays
