I've been getting a CEL recently, O2 circuit low voltage. I think it was P0102 but I've cleared the code a few times and now it's now not reappearing. Since it first happened my idle has been all over the place (and it still is), especially when cold. Am I looking at replacing the lambda probe, or is this fault to do with something else on the same circuit? I've tried another Lambda sensor and it was even worse.

Trying to boot it (i.e. going from open to closed loop) is problematic, and that's the last thing I need when I'm trying to tune it for Combe on Sat.

Probably wasn't P0102 as that's for a MAF and yours is a T5 car?

Fair enough, cheers. The text of the code "O2 circuit low voltage" is correct though I'm pretty sure, I read it with my ELM.

have you tried checking the connector with a multimeter and also check the resistance from the o2 sensor? This way you can perhaps try and see if it is a wiring problem or a probe problem. check the voltage at the wiring connector, and i think the official saab procedure is, if not getting then correct voltage to "wiggle" the wiring harness in various places to see if there is any variation.

But i guess you need to know what voltage it should be receiving (possibly 5v??) and what the resistance of the 02 probe should be (no idea?).

Well yes, this is the rub- I have no idea which pins to test for what values.

Ha, CEL when I went out at lunch, but no laptop.

AFRs went from 14.7 to about 16, when they hit 18 I got a CEL. Switching off and on again reset both the CEL and the problem- back to stoich running.

probably something that rear its ugly head in the future but P0102 is MAF which could and probably would give O2 sensor a false reading as they are linked to emission's

I've found a problem in my map and fixed it.
