Where is the sensor for an OBD2 Code error P1155 for a Toyota Sienna 2001. How do you change it and what is the effect if you do not change it?
P1155: Air/Fuel Ratio Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 1)
The sensor is on the Bank 1 throttle body with electrical connection. Its a delicate sensor. Unscrew it from the throttle body and check if its dirty, spray it with electronic cleaner with care. If its damaged, just replace it.
If its not rectified, the car computer may default the air temperature to 20 degC and the air flow will not be correct and may have the following effect:
1. You might have difficulty in winter startups 2. Loss fuel efficiency (air/fuel ratio is messed up)/NOx problems/failed emission test/prematured catalytic converter replacement etc.
Bank 1 Sensor 1 is mounted in the exhaust header before the Catalytic Converter (CC). The ECU uses the signal from the AF sensor to adjust Air/Fuel ratio. On V6 and V8 engines there is a second AF Sensor in the other header. (Bank 2 Sensor 1).
After the CC there is a narrow range O2 sensor called Bank 1 Sensor 2. It monitors the CC. If there are two CCs there is a second O2 sensor (Bank 2 Sensor 2)
The AF Sensor draws about 3 amps so check connections. The heater is a resistor between the B+ and HT terminals of the plug. On V engines there is also a AF relay to check.
I found the above info else ware on the web. I have the code intermittently on my 2001 V6 Sienna. If I ever get a day off I am going to troubleshoot mine and will report the results.
PS I may have answered this twice. I think I lost the first one.
