P1167 Volvo Heated Rear Oxygen Sensor 2 Maximum Voltage Monitoring Bank 2

Possible causes
- Faulty Heated Rear Oxygen Sensor Bank 2
- Heated Rear Oxygen Sensor Bank 2 harness is open or shorted
- Heated Rear Oxygen Sensor Bank 2 circuit poor electrical connection
- Fuel pressure
- Injectors
- Intake air leaks
Tech description
Replacing the Rear Oxygen (O2) Sensor usually takes care of the problem
What about the obd code?
The P1167 Volvo code is triggered when the maximum voltage from the sensor is not reached to the specified voltage.
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible high fuel consumption
- Possible excessive smoke from exhaust
P1167 Volvo Description

The heated oxygen sensor 2 (rear), after three way catalyst, monitors the oxygen level in the exhaust gas on each bank. Even if switching characteristics of the heated oxygen sensor 1 (front) are shifted, the air fuel ratio is controlled to stoichiometric, by the signal from the heated oxygen sensor 2. This sensor is made of ceramic zirconia. The zirconia generates voltage from approximately 1V in richer conditions to 0V in leaner conditions. Under normal conditions the heated oxygen sensor 2 is not used for engine control operation.

1. Need to look up additional OBD-II Trouble Codes(DTC), use the search box. Enter the 5 character trouble codes in the search box and submit the search. You can repeat the search as many times as you need, one diagnostic code per search.
2. Don't assume a particular OBDii code means the same for other automotive manufacturers as there are many manufacturer specific codes in use.
3. If your trouble codes are for a different automotive, select that vehicle series before searching for the diagnostic codes because not all OBD2 codes used by one manufacture are used by the other manufactures. The search only looks at OBD codes valid for the currently selected manufacturer.
4. This code is for reference only.
5. Help us improve Tell us fix the code. Any information is appreciated. Thanks.
