P2276 O2 Sensor Signal Stuck Lean Bank 2 Sensor 3

OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description

亚虎国际老虎机网站o2 sensor signal stuck lean bank 2 sensor 3

What does that mean?

this is a generic powertrain code, which means it covers all makes/models, 1996-newer. vehicle brands may include but are not limited to ford, mazda, jaguar, jeep, land rover, etc. however, specific troubleshooting steps will vary depending on the vehicle.

this p2276 trouble code refers to the post-catalytic converter o2 (oxygen) sensor on bank #1, sensor #3. this post-cat sensor is used for monitoring the efficiency of the catalytic converter. the converter's job is to reduce emissions out the tailpipe. when the signal from the o2 sensor is detected by the pcm as being stuck lean or biased lean, this dtc is set.


 

亚虎国际老虎机网站the p2276 dtc refers to the second downstream sensor (after the second catalytic converter), sensor #3 on bank #2. bank #2 is the side of the engine that does not contain cylinder #1.

this code is basically telling you that the signal put out by the particular oxygen sensor is stuck lean (meaning too much air in the exhaust).

Symptoms

亚虎国际老虎机网站most likely you will not notice any drivability issues since this is not sensor #1. you will notice malfunction indicator lamp (mil) illumination. in some cases however, the engine may run rough.

Potential Causes

亚虎国际老虎机网站the causes for this dtc may include:

Diagnostic and Repair Procedures

亚虎国际老虎机网站visually inspect the wiring and connectors for corrosion, rubbed / chafed / bent wires, wiring pins bent/loose, burnt appearance, and/or crossed wires. repair or replace as required. this would be a good idea to visually check the wiring for all of the sensors.

check for exhaust leaks, repair as necessary.

using a digital volt ohm meter (dvom) set to ohms, check harness connector(s) for resistance. compare to manufacturer specifications. replace or repair as required.

亚虎国际老虎机网站if you have access to an advanced scan tool, use it to monitor the sensor readings as viewed by the pcm (engine running, at normal operating temperature in closed loop mode). watch the bank 2, sensor 3 reading. the rear heated oxygen sensor (ho2s) normally sees a fluctuating voltage between 0 & 1 volt, for this dtc you'll likely see the voltage “stuck” at 0v. revving the engine should cause the sensor's voltage to change (react).

亚虎国际老虎机网站the most common fixes for this dtc seem to be either an exhaust air leak, a wiring problem with the sensor/wiring, or the sensor itself. if you replace the o2 sensor, buy an oem one (manufacturer brand) for best results.

if you remove the ho2s oxygen sensor, inspect it for contamination from fuel, engine oil, and coolant.

other troubleshooting ideas: use a fuel pressure tester, check the fuel pressure at the schrader valve on the fuel rail. compare to manufacturers specification. inspect the purge solenoid valve. inspect fuel injectors. inspect coolant passages for leaks.

there may be technical service bulletins (tsbs) that apply to your make and model pertaining to this trouble code, check with your dealership service department or online source to locate any specific tsbs that apply to your vehicle.
