Welcome! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to assist you with this problem.
do you have any access to a scan tool to view live computer data ?
you replaced the front O2 sensor and cleared the code and how long before the code set again ?
how does the car run ?
Hi...All I have is a accutron basic scanner,I changed plugs,air filter and )2 sensor upstream.
It smell a little rich.
I will hook up my genesis tomorrow....what should it be?
here is the quick flow chart to follow
if you follow it without skipping a step it will lead exactly to what the problem is
so print this out as the pictures time out quickly in here
Circuit Description The Engine Control Module (ECM) supplies a voltage of about 0.45 V between terminals E34 and E26 (if measured with a 10 Mohms digital voltmeter, this may read as low as 0.32 V ). The Heated Oxygen Sensor 1 (HO2S1) varies the voltage within a range of about 1 V if the exhaust is rich, down through about 0.10 V if the exhaust is lean. The sensor is like and open circuit and produces no voltage when it is below 315 °C (600 °F) . An open sensor circuit or cold sensor causes Open Loop operation. If the HO2S1 pigtail wiring, connector, or terminal is damaged, the entire HO2S1 assembly must be replaced. Do not attempt to repair the wiring, connector, or terminals. In order for the sensor to function properly, it must have a clean air reference provided to it. This clean air reference is obtained by way of the HO2S1 wire(s). Any attempt to repair the wires, connector or terminals could result in the obstruction of the air reference and degrade the HO2S1 performance. Refer to "Heated Oxygen Sensor 1".Conditions for Setting the DTC

Diagnostic Aids The DTC P0132 or rich exhaust is most likely caused by one of the following items:

Hi...getting no live data ...scanner cannot read any sensors!
But you can read and clear codes.
I know...I think ecm might be bad.
it could be
if that O2 is brand new and the wiring is good from the ECM to the O2 sensor it could be
but to be 100% sure that must be followed
would hate to see you waste money
do you think the ecm is plug and play?
it must be programed to operate
but some places you can buy them from can preprogram them for you by your VIN number
ok...I read the 02 bank 1...swings between 0.15 and 0.877 V.Bank 2 sensor is swing back and forth also.Had to use a aactron plus to read live data.Go figure....4k Peggasus will not read...but a $200 acctron reads !!!!
Bank one is obviously going over 1.0 volt every now and then.I have not seen it do it yet.
Exhaust smells Rich.
Car seem to be running fine!
