P0155 obd2 code for complete oxygen sensor wiring check ups

P0155     Engine primary oxygen sensor heater circuit problem

On late 90s imports, you will see this P0155 especially if you have primary and secondary oxgen sensors. The primary oxygen sensors sit at the engine exhaust manifolds whereas the secondary sits at the back of the catalytic converter underneath the vehicle. In this set up, the primary sensors are used to monitor the engine performance and the secondary sensor is used to monitor the catalytic converter. In this code, one of the primary oxygen sensor is at fault and the way to check this is to monitor the voltage signal from the sensor signal wire if they are switching. You can also manually enrich the fuel mixture or make it lean by introducing fuel vapor (use propane gas to do this) in the engine vacuum line. When enriched, the voltage reading should go up around 0.9 v, like wise if you introduce a vacuum leak to make the mixture lean, the voltage reading should go down near zero.

oxygen sensor location

If your oxygen sensor has 4 wires on it, it only means it has a heater circuit on it and it is used by the sensor to make the sensor more responsive to the demands of the engine. The heater usually is a separate circuit of wires that are use to supply power and ground to the heater element inside the sensor. To fix this code is normally done by replacing the sensor if they are more than 50,000 miles old (for older engines) and 100,000 miles for newer engines. If the signal wire does not switch, check the continuity of the signal wire from the sensor to your computer. ATS can supply you a detailed check up for the oxygen sensor for most automotive vehicles until 2005 models.

NOTE: If you do not have an obd2 scanner or code reader, you can get the obd2 codes (for vehicles made after 1996 to present) by seeing your nearest automotive parts stores like PEP Boys, Auto Zones, Auto Value, Bumper to Bumper, etc...and they usually give FREE code scanning to promote their parts.
