good evening my name is XXXXX XXXXX X will help you tonight

Did you measure the voltage on the ground wire at the sensor????

what is the voltage??? the pcm controls the ground, there is no relay. the pcm will ground the heater circuit when the engine is cold on start up to get the sensor up to temp. after about a minute it will not ground anymore till it is needed.

Roy,


The voltage at pin 5 power input is 12 volts with the battery voltage at 12.47.


There was no voltage on pin 6 the ground side, but the resistance to ground today was 361 ohms. These readings were all taken at the harness side connector with the sensor disconnected. I erased the codes and got the check engine light again, but the code was only P0030.


 


With a warm engine the resistance measured between pins 5 and 6 on the sensor was 4 ohms.


 


You asked for the voltage on the ground wire at the sensor. Do you want me to penetrate the wire insulation to get a reading while it was connected to the harness?


 


Thanks,


Roger

you have the needed voltage at the o2 heater portion. I would replace the sensor as the heater portion has failed.

when a code returns immediately after clearing, you have an electrical failure such as the heater in the sensor. I feel confident from your readings that you have a failed sensor.
