P0132 CHEVROLET - HO2S Circuit High Voltage Bank 1 Sensor 1
Tech notesReplacing the Front Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Bank 1 usually takes care of the problem
When is the code detected?An excessively high voltage from the sensor is sent to Engine Control Module (ECM).
P0132 Chevrolet DescriptionThe Powertrain Control Module (PCM) supplies a voltage of about 450 mV between the Front Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) high and low signal circuits. The oxygen sensor varies the voltage over a range from about 1,000 mV when the exhaust is rich, down through about 10 mV when the exhaust is lean.
The PCM monitors and stores the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) voltage information. The PCM evaluates the HO2S voltage samples in order to determine the amount of time the HO2S voltage was out of range. The PCM compares the stored HO2S voltage samples taken within each sample period and determines if majority of the samples are out of the operating range.
