Nissan Sentra Service Manual: P0139 HO2S2

DTC Logic

DTC DETECTION LOGIC

The heated oxygen sensor 2 has a much longer switching time between rich and lean than the air fuel ratio (A/F) sensor 1. The oxygen storage capacity of the three way catalyst 1 causes the longer switching time. To judge the malfunctions of heated oxygen sensor 2, ECM monitors whether the switching response of the sensor's voltage is faster than specified during various driving conditions such as fuel cut.


DTC No.

CONSULT screen terms (Trouble diagnosis content)

DTC detecting condition

Possible cause

P0139 HO2S2 (B1) (O2 sensor circuit slow response bank 1 sensor 2) The switching time between rich and lean of a heated oxygen sensor 2 signal delays more than the specified time computed by ECM.
  • Harness or connectors (The sensor circuit is open or shorted)
  • Heated oxygen sensor 2
  • Fuel system
  • Intake air system
