DTC Logic

DTC DETECTION LOGIC

To judge the malfunction, the diagnosis checks that the A/F signal computed by ECM from the A/F sensor 1 signal is not inordinately low.

DTC No.

CONSULT screen terms (Trouble diagnosis content)

DTC detecting condition

Possible cause

P0131 A/F SENSOR1 (B1) (O2 sensor circuit low voltage bank 1 sensor 1) The A/F signal computed by ECM from the A/F sensor 1 signal is constantly approx. 0 V.
  • Harness or connectors (A/F sensor 1 circuit is open or shorted.)
  • A/F sensor 1

DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

1.PRECONDITIONING

If DTC Confirmation Procedure has been previously conducted, always perform the following procedure before conducting the next test.

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.
  2. Turn ignition switch ON
  3. Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.

TESTING CONDITION:

Before performing the following procedure, confirm that battery voltage is more than 10.5 V at idle.

>> GO TO 2.

2.CHECK A/F SENSOR FUNCTION

With CONSULT


  1. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
  2. Select “A/F SEN1 (B1)” in “DATA MONITOR” mode of “ENGINE” using CONSULT.
  3. Check “A/F SEN1 (B1)” indication.

Follow the procedure “With CONSULT” above. With GST


Follow the procedure “With CONSULT” above.

Is the indication constantly approx. 0 V? YES >> Proceed to EC-215, "Diagnosis Procedure".

NO >> GO TO 3.

3.PERFORM DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

With CONSULT


  1. Turn ignition switch OFF, wait at least 10 seconds and then restart engine.
  2. Drive and accelerate vehicle to more than 40 km/h (25 MPH) within 20 seconds after restarting engine

CAUTION:

Always drive vehicle at a safe speed.

  1. Maintain the following conditions for about 20 consecutive seconds.

NOTE:


NOTE:

  1. Check 1st trip DTC.

Follow the procedure “With CONSULT” above. With GST


Follow the procedure “With CONSULT” above.

Is 1st trip DTC detected? YES >> Proceed to EC-215, "Diagnosis Procedure".

NO >> INSPECTION END

Diagnosis Procedure

1.CHECK AIR FUEL RATIO (A/F) SENSOR 1 POWER SUPPLY

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect A/F sensor 1 harness connector.
  3. Turn ignition switch ON.
  4. Check the voltage between A/F sensor 1 harness connector and ground.
