There is really no voltage coming to the sensors. The sensors themselves are the ones that generate a small amount of current from the heat of the exhaust. You may want to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

no it can't. usually when the oxygen sensors are failing, u get your check engine light on.


Where are the oxygen sensors on a 2001 Mitsubishi Montero?

Oxygen sensors are located at the same place on all cars cause they all do the same thing: analyze your exhaust gas. It will be on the exhaust pipe, between the engine and the catalytic converter. thats good but there are 3 of them

Oxygen Sensor. Or the Knock Sensor. Or you could check the plugs for faults.

Two but the upper would be the one to cause problems


95 Villager runs terrible and sputters-backfires when cold is there in fact a second oxygen sensor or what else could cause these symptoms?

Oxygen sensors generally do not operate when "cold". Engine is in open loop mode while warming up. In additionl, oxygen sensors generally do not cause this kind of problem. I've read elsewhere that there is a sensor in the distributor that can get dirty and cause the symptoms you're experiencing. Sorry, don't have any links handy.


How do sensors sense light and dark?

yes it can. also check knock sensor and the wire going to it


Where is the oxygen sensor switch located on a 1989 Chevrolet Caprice?

All Oxygen Sensors are located in the exhaust eitherbefore or after the catalytic converter. Your O2 sensor may not be defective as a vacuum leak can cause the code.


Your 1999 Lincoln Continental that dies when you stop at a stop light what would cause this?

I was told by my cousin who is an auto mechanic that dirty oxygen sensors would cause that problem. You can either replace them or you can wash them.


Would bad oxygen sensor cause bas esp light to come on in 2008 magnum?

No. BAS (brake assist system) and ESP (electronic skip protection) are part of the antilock brake system. They have nothing to do with the oxygen sensors.No. BAS (brake assist system) and ESP (electronic skip protection) are part of the antilock brake system.

Does your o2 sensors control your idle?

Not directly. The oxygen sensor measures oxygen levels in the exhaust. The computer uses that to calculate fuel and spark timing. If an oxygen sensor is malfunctioning, it could cause idle problems.Not directly. The oxygen sensor measures oxygen levels in the exhaust. The computer uses that to calculate fuel and spark timing.

What cause excessive ripple voltage from a power supply.?

I think the cause of ripple voltage would be from a bad ground or capacitve voltage.


How often should you change your oxygen sensor?

you should never have to change your oxygen sensors. The only time you have to is if the PCM (powertrain control module) is not recieving any input from them. This would cause an MIL (engine light) to illuminate.

What could cause a 1999 Toyota Camry check engine light to come on after replacing all the sensors and driving it for about forty miles?

what sensors have you replaced?? i am assuming the oxygen sensors. i need a code number to tell you what is wrong. if its a p0420 its probabily the catalytic converter. mabye a p0141-mass air flow needs to be cleaned


Where is the oxygen sensor on a 2001 Lexus RX300?

All oxygen sensors are in the exhaust. They can either be before or after the catalytic convertor. Just because you have a code for an oxygen sensor does Not mean that it is defective. You can have a vacuum leak causing a lean code. You can also have a leaky injector that will cause a rich code.


What cause bank 1 sensor to default?

As i found out on My Explorer, Bank 1 failure depends on the code being issued; If it is code PO171 orPO174, You have an issue with the oxygen sensors, due to moisture. Replace all oxygen sensors. I know, sounds expensive and it is, But vehicles depend on them for better fuel economy and proformance. Changing fuel filter, pcv valve and air filters may help but wont last. The mass air-flow sensor is also another item to keep clean since air-fuel mixture is determined by this equiptment.
