Are DTCs P1127, P1128 or P1129 present during KOER Self-Test?
Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P0133 and P0153 indicate the response rate of the upstream HO2S(s) is below some calibrated window. The test measures the HO2S amplitude and output frequency. This is accomplished by superimposing a 1.5 to 2.5 Hz square wave over Lambse. The HO2S switching is monitored during this time to see if the calibration limit is met.
