P0155 Code...

This is a 2002 S10, 4.3 engine. Has about 60K miles, and otherwise runs OK.

P0155 ---> 02 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 2, Sensor 1)

Now, what exactly does this mean?...

Thanks, in advance... Robert

This part I knew...

My concern is if there is any other reason the PCM would set this code other than the 02 sensor heating element being bad.

I'm sure the codes are specific for a reason (at least most are). Change that 02 sensor and let us know how it goes.

My SES light is on and I have that same code, my truck is an '03 with 50k miles, i was about to just order a new o2 sensor through autozone but the guy at pep boys is tryin to get me to spend $85 on some diagnostic test, he says that just because its throwing that code doesnt mean that the sensor is bad and that this test will tell you exactly what the problem is.

Anyone else have this problem?

Re: P0155 Code...

The guy at pep boys is just trying to get your money. O2s' were out! You could replace more O2 sensors that oil pressure sensors because they wear out. And besides that I have heard very bad things about pep boys ripping off people with unnessary work. OBDII codes are somewhat specific. All your codes will tell you a specific part and always say also lead to the computer because that is whats controling or getting signals from parts. That guy may try to convince you it needs an ECM.

Re: P0155 Code...

Just because a code comes up DOESNT mean that the sensor is bad, a leaky fuel injector or one that doesnt open will cause bad running and sensor codes, bad grounds, bad PCM all can cause false codes, but the sensors do wear out and are usually suspect.

Re: P0155 Code...

I need to replace the same sensor (Bank 2 Sensor 1) on my 2002 ZR2. For some reason I have only been able to locate 3 of the 4 O2 sensors on my truck. Can anyone help me with pic or advice on how to access this specific sensor.

yeah like the wiring maybe.

btw, P0101 is the MAF sensor. http://www.obd-codes.com/p0101(no wonder it keeps comming on if you replaced the o2 sensor...lol)
P0135 is the o2 sensor heater. http://www.obd-codes.com/p0135

Re: P0155 Code...

Im getting the same code on my truck, but the guys at the parts store arent able to tell me which sensor is bad. Is there a way to know without taking it to the dealer for a diagnostic?

if you got the same code, then browse through the thread, they already said which 02 sensor it was...the guys at the parts store should be able to tell you too, unless they're just stupid or lazy...lol

P0155 indicates a problem with heater circuit of bank 2 sensor 1 (passengers side - before cat).

There's a remote chance the code could be caused by a bad fuse (02 15A fuse - under-hood box), by VCM/PCM, or bad ground wire, but you're pretty well assured replacing sensor will fix the problem.

yup check your fuses and grounds first because there is always that remote chance that the only issue is a blown fuse or a bad ground.. totally agree there i have seen people change there o2 sensor only to find out the code still keeps coming back and the fuse was blown for the o2 sensor and they spent $50+ and it was just a fuse..

Re: P0155 Code...

Afternoon guys!

I need to get your advice on this post. I replaced the 02 sensor bank 2 sensor 1. Which if I am not mistaking is the pass side sensor BEFORE the cat.

After roughly 300 miles the ses went off....THEN CAME BACK ON the next day.
checked the sensor connections, but will double check.

your experience with return codes would be appreciated!!!!!

Guys...just to be certain, because I saw two different responses in this thread....is a P0155 code for the O2 sensor closest to the exhaust manifold, or furthest away? TIA

Re: P0155 Code...

Hey guys, I have a 2004 S-10 ZR5 4x4. Had a code of P0155, changed O2 on passenger side. Then got a PO135 code, replaced drivers side O2. Was good for a day, now P0155 code is back. Checked voltage and have 12 volts at both sensors. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: P0155 Code...

Hey guys.02 s10 4x4 4.3l had ap0155 bank 2 sensor 1 . I replaced the sensor.then the code returned.i erased code and disconnected the battery. then my temperature sensor went bad and I replaced it. then I get p0 155 again heater circuit malfunction bank 2 sensor 1. I replaced the sensor again and have the same code. Does anyone know how to check the heater circuit at the sensor do you know what voltage and which wire I should check any advice would be deeply appreciated. I have been told the pink wire is the heater circuit wire and the Black is a common ground but I don't know what voltage I should be looking for. truck is making me crazy please respond.tia.

Re: P0155 Code...

The heater inside the oxygen sensor is controlled by two of the four wires that come out of it. One provides 12 Volts, and the other is the ground circuit that the PCM provides internally. So, when the heater is functioning correctly, these 12 Volts and ground are what get it to heat up.

Around 98% of the time, you can assume correctly (without any specific testing) that a new O2 sensor is in order and will solve the problem. In the other 2% of the cases, the oxygen sensor heater fuse has blown because the O2 sensor's wires have shorted and melted together (usually because they've come into contact with the exhaust pipe).

Did you read what I wrote? The sensor requires 12v and ground.

Re: P0155 Code...

...so much dumb



Check Key on power to heat circuit, if no power check fuse, if power present check ground side....Electricity is f*cking simple. Diagnostics are easy.

...and quit using Autozone parts you dumb bastards

If you do not have power and or ground to the heater, it would set the same code. It is usually a burned out heater, but I have been fooled before.
