Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

George, can you give me the actual fault code and or codes you are getting and post back with them and I will try and help you determine the cause.

Hi Ron , i didnt make a note of the code, i cleared the code, the code was for o2 sensor bank 1 sensor i said the reading with my scanner that bank reads 260 v.
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Is it possible you can scan it again and get me the actual code? Having it will make this much easier to provide an accurate response.

ok Ron , i have been driving the car there are no codes for now, but the reading is way too high on that bank, i guess i have to keep driving the car.

Okay post back if the light come back on with the fault code and we can work from there. If there is still a problem the light and the code should return.

Hey ron, on the volvo the light came on today, i checked it with my scanner , the code was 280a =p1132 and it stands for front heated o2 sensor bank 1, if the voltage reading on that bank is 260v , could it be that one of the wires is grounded somewhere ?
please let me know. thanks
