P0135 Mitsubishi O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction Bank 1 Sensor 1
– Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor
(H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1
– Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit
– Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit open shorted to ground
– Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit poor electrical connection
– Faulty Engine
Control Module (ECM
The code means that there is a problem with the heater element circuit of the heated oxygen sensor
. The control module monitors how long it take the sensor to warm up and start sending an adequate signal. The code is triggered when the sensor is taking too long to warm up. Water getting inside the heated oxygen sensor connector can caused the heated oxygen sensor fuse to blow. Before replacing the sensor, check for the condition of the heated oxygen sensor fuse and connectors. If the sensor and connector are OK, replacing the O2 Sensor 1 usually takes care of the problem
What about the obd code?
Current amperage in the front heated oxygen sensor heater circuit is out of the normal range. (An improper voltage drop signal is sent to ECM through the front heated oxygen sensor heat
– Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
– Possible higher than usual fuel Consumption
P0135 Mitsubishi Description
Oxygen Sensors (O2S) or Heated Oxygen Sensors (HO2S) need to reach a minimum operating temperature of 750 degrees F to produce an accurate voltage signal. The faster the heated oxygen sensor reaches that temperature the faster the sensor will start sending an accurate signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM).
In order to achieve the require temperature, a heater element is included inside the heated oxygen sensor. The ECM controls the heated oxygen sensor heater element based on signals from the engine coolant temperature and engine load. The ECM controls the heater element circuit by allowing current flow to ground.
The ECM monitors the voltage signal received through the heater element circuit and determines the state of the circuit by comparing the voltage detected with the factory specifications.
