Help with o2 sensor heater circuit please!!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm currently having a massive headache with my upstream o2 sensor heater circuit.

I had the P0031 code pop up a few months ago, with no other codes. I foolishly bought a replacement o2 sensor, fitted it and code is still there, even after clearing.

I tested the voltage at the connecter from the car and found it to only be 9v. I managed to test this all the way back to the grommet in the firewall and was getting 9v there aswell.

I tried tracing the wires on the inside of the car but was absolutely hopeless- too much in the way!

I'm hoping somebody has experience with this or has access to the subaru tech manuals- if so please help as i'm losing my !Removed! mind!

Cheers in advance [emoji106]

From what I understand it goes to a pin on the ecu along with I a fue other sensors it could be where thay contact together before thay get to the ecu and i'm not sure where that would be on your car but if all is lost you could put your own ground in

In that case i'll dig the ECU out, if nothing obvious there i'll try and follow the loom back as far as possible... If I made my own ground would the ECU throw a code as it's not detecting the correct voltage..? Or maybe it reads the voltage on the positive side... Electrics confuse the hell out of me!
