Roy, I have checked all wiring. I know what all the possible causes are. I didn't pay to find that out. That info is on the internet. �� I've taken it to a Dodge dealership and they can't even pinpoint the problem.

the slow response is from either the signal circuit or the pcm itself not processing the information.

remember I am here and not there and do not have the luxury of checking it myself. I would find the issue if I was there.

what is the voltage of the sensor engine running???

I have no clue. Can I find that out by using my code reader?

no, you need a real scan tool.

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
it does.

ok tell me the voltage of bank 2 sensor 2 when running

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
The CEL isn't on currently, I reset the computer earlier today. Will it still show a problem if there is one?

re setting does absolutely nothing. the issue is still there. you are better off leaving the light on. there is freeze frame data that is stored when the code sets.

just tell me the reading with it running???

I replaced the 02 sensor about a year and a half ago, maybe less. Light still came on. About 3 weeks ago I replaced the passenger side exhaust manifold thinking it had a leak since it was very rusted and corroded.
Phone call session started

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
The light only seems to come on after driving at highway speeds for 20-40 miles. Once you let off the gas to exit highway, light comes on.
I didn't mean to accept the phone call offer. I hit it by accident but there was no way to cancel.

you can request a refund but the site will not pay me for my efforts. is that what you want??

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
because I hit it by accident and there was no way to cancel.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I'm sorry but I did not mean to hit it

ok, then I am going to opt out. we or the experts expect to be paid for our efforts. we do not work for nothing. it is the only way we get paid. when refunds are given, that knocks us out.

no worries. this will be my last post to you and I have to move on to others where I get paid.

the voltage should be stable. from thos readings it looks like you have a bad cat converter causing the slow response.
