Code No. P0158: Left Bank Oxygen Sensor (rear) Circuit High Voltage










OPERATION



  • The sensor signal is inputted to the engine-ECU (terminal No. 40) from the left bank oxygen sensor (rear) output terminal (terminal No. 4).
  • The left bank oxygen sensor (rear) (terminal No. 2) is earthed with engine-ECU (terminal No. 41).

FUNCTION



  • The left bank oxygen sensor (rear) converts the concentration of oxygen in the exhaust emission into a voltage and inputs the signal to the engine-ECU.
  • When the air-fuel ratio is richer than the theoretical air-fuel ratio, the left bank oxygen sensor (rear) outputs a voltage of about 1 V. When it is leaner than the theoretical air-fuel ratio, it outputs a voltage of about 0 V.
  • In response to the signal, the engine-ECU controls the fuel injection amount so that the air-fuel ratio can be equivalent to the theoretical air-fuel ratio.

TROUBLE JUDGMENT


Check Conditions
  • 2 seconds or more have passed since the engine starting sequence was completed.
  • Left bank oxygen sensor (rear) offset voltage is 0.4 - 0.6 V.
Judgment Criterion
  • Left bank oxygen sensor (rear) output voltage has continued to be 1.8 V or higher for 2 seconds.

PROBABLE CAUSES



  • Failed left bank oxygen sensor (rear)
  • Short circuit in left bank oxygen sensor (rear) heater circuit or loose connector contact
  • Failed engine-ECU

DIAGNOSIS PROCEDURE


STEP 1. M.U.T.-III data list



  • Refer to Data List Reference Table .

  1. Item AF: Left bank oxygen sensor (rear)

Q. Is the check result normal?

Intermittent malfunction (Refer to GROUP 00 - How to Use Troubleshooting/Inspection Service Points - How to Cope with Intermittent Malfunctions ).
Go to Step 2 .

STEP 2. Connector check: B-41 left bank oxygen sensor (rear) connector


Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 3 .
Repair or replace the connector.

STEP 3. Connector check: B-29 engine-ECU connector


Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 4 .
Repair or replace the connector.

STEP 4. Check harness between B-41 (terminal No. 4) left bank oxygen sensor (rear) connector and B-29 (terminal No. 40) engine-ECU connector.



  • Check output line for short circuit.

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 5 .
Repair the damaged harness wire.

STEP 5. M.U.T.-III data list



  • Refer to Data List Reference Table .

  1. Item AF: Left bank oxygen sensor (rear)

Q. Is the check result normal?

Intermittent malfunction (Refer to GROUP 00 - How to Use Troubleshooting/Inspection Service Points - How to Cope with Intermittent Malfunctions ).
Replace the engine-ECU.
