|When is the P1167 NISSAN code detected?

The P1167 code is triggered when the maximum voltage from the sensor is not reached to the specified voltage.

|What are P1167 NISSAN code possible symptoms?

  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

  • Possible excessive smoke from exhaust

|What Does the P1167 NISSAN Code Mean?

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.
