HiCustomer

 

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

 

 

HA40 DTC P1131, P1151, P1132 AND P1152: UPSTREAM HO2S(S) NOT SWITCHING. DTCs P1130 AND P1150: FUEL SYSTEM NOT SWITCHING AT THE FUEL TRIM (RICH OR LEAN)

    Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P1131 bank 1 (Cylinder 1) and P1151 bank 2 indicate the fuel/air ratio is correcting rich for an overly lean condition. The HO2S voltage is less than 0.45 volt. DTCs P1132 bank 1 (Cylinder 1) and P1152 bank 2 indicate the fuel/air ratio is correcting lean for an overly rich condition. The HO2S voltage is greater than 0.45 volt.

     

    Which is in most case caused by a bad HO2S. Bank one (passenger side) .

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

English?? LOL. Whats the Ho2S??

Expert:  Ron replied 5 years ago.
Sorry the HO2S is the Heated Oxygen sensor, you have one on each bank ( drivers side and passenger side) in you case it the passenger side that has the issue.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Thats what I figured but why would it give me 3 seperate codes for the same thing? The other 2 codes were po133 and po155

Expert:  Ron replied 5 years ago.
You always start with the first code. In most cases this is the Fix.
