Direct O-zone Reduction Catalyst Temperature Sensor Circuit Range/Performance
P2568 is an OBD-II generic code that the engine control module (ECM) has detected the engine o-zone reduction catalyst temperature sensor to be out of specification range or performance has gone out of specification parameters.
Scans codes and documents the freeze frame data in order to verify the problem
Clears the engine codes and road tests the vehicle to verify concern comes back
Monitors the sensor PID on a scanner to see if sensor indicates the proper temperature of the exhaust as per specifications
Checks the sensor for damage to the sensor or wiring
Failing to repair any exhaust leaks or damage causing the sensor performance to be out of specifications
Failing to check the wiring harness and connection to the sensor for problems before replacing the sensor or catalyst
The Check Engine Light being on causes the vehicle to fail emission testing.
The sensor system for the catalyst temperature is important to keep from overheating the catalyst and causing damage to the catalyst.
Code P2568 is triggered when the catalyst temperature sensor is out of specifications and can cause the catalyst to be overheated and damaged. When repairing the temperature sensor, check the catalyst for damage from overheating by looking at the catalyst housing for large discoloration or heat damage.
