link error came up


P0050


COOLANT 172


CODES FOUND 6


 

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
If it says 6 codes were found I'd think there should be 6 different code numbers? P0052 is 1 then it sounds like P0172 might be another?

P0059, P0154, P0155, and P0050 is for the bank 2 sensor 1 oxygen sensor which almost always means the oxygen senor has failed.

 

 

P1258 means engine temp was overheated for over 10 seconds. If vehicle doesn't overheat and just this code set then replace the coolant temp sensor.

 

Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

do I have to replaced the oxygen sensor and where can I purchase one
and the coolant sensor


the vehicle did not over heat


 


and the other question was for my 2004 van

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
Yes you will need to replace the oxygen sensor, the part number is XXXXX and if you google it you should be able to find many options. The part number for coolant temp sensor is 15326386, you can buy both on ebay. As far as the 2004 DC fuse, what stopped working? Thanks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

The radiator was replaced but the water was leaking so the 40 amp dc fuse holder burn to a crisp. the mechanic said the radiator was faulty not sure if it was

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

You can buy these fuse holders pretty much from any hardware or parts store, otherwise here is one you can buy on ebay. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

Can we drive the van

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
I'm assuming your talking about the 2006 and yes you can but you will not get as good of gas mileage so I'd make sure to buy parts and replace asap. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
