Is Bosch A/f Sensor Compatible With 1999 Es300?

Recommended Posts

Hi

My car is 1999 ES300. Couple months ago, I got ECL and TRACOFF came up both. I found the code is P1135 and P1155. Both are "A/F sensor heater circuit malfunction". I replaced B1S1 and B2S1 by Bosch 15217 wideband A/F sensors. However I still got P1135 and P1155.

Have any one used Bosch 15217 for ES300? Would you mind telling me if Bosch part can be compatible with 1999 ES300?

Thanks in advance

ON the RX forum Bosch is hit or miss, we recommend Denso....by the way sold on amazon for $100 or less....recently.,...

You can try to measure the resistance of the heating element.

If it reads 8 ohms across the black wires, the resistance is above spec and the car will still generate a p1135 code. An original or replacement A/F sensor should read between .8 and 1.4 ohms. A bad element gives you an open circuit (you can try the original one).

There's also a possibility the wiring between the sensors and ecm is faulty. I'm not sure if it applies for the ES300, but sometimes there's a common harness for ground.

I've seen lot's of problems with Bosh A/F sensors versus Lexus/Toyota's, so best would be Denso/original.

Hi

Thanks for your prompt response.

(1) I have measured Bosch 15217's heater resistance. it's 1.2ohm which meet specs

(2) I replaced the B1S1 with Denso 234-9009 (from Amazon, original box)

(3) keep B2S1 Bosch 15217.

Even I do these, I still get P1135 and P1155 both.

Some mechanic told me that the A/F sensor must come from dealer because it's very sensitive. Is this true?

Do you use parts from amazon? Are they OK? I also used the denso A/F sensor from amazon. The problem is still there.
