Q: Trouble code P0060 after changing out all of my O2 sensors

asked by on

I changed all my o2 sensors and the code p0060 keeps coming on and I need to get any inspection done. What's going on.

My car has 135000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. Replacing all the oxygen sensors for the trouble code P0060 O2/bank2/sensor2 heater circuit fault, I am sure was expensive. Having emissions due, makes the problem even more frustrating with the code returning.

The O2 heater power and ground circuits for the downstream O2 sensor/right bank need to be tested. Typically, a 12volt signal to one side of the heater circuit and a pulsed ground signal controlled by the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) on the other side. A scanner capable of seeing parameters may be required to confirm the diagnoses.

To avoid any unnecessary repairs, I recommend having your vehicle’s Check Engine Light diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
