    Throwing a P1151 code on an actron scanner after getting a SES light. Car is doing alot of pinging at low speeds. I replaced the pre cat o2 sensors last year. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you,
    Justin

    The code is for bank 2 pre cat sensor heater circuit, so check the plug connections and wiring.

    The heater circuit is in the lambda sensor. There are 4 wires to it, 2 for the lambda sensor, and 2 for a heating element.

    It is picking up some sort of heating problem, which could be anywhere from the ECU to the sensor, and all the wiring in between, but plug corrosion might be the cause.

    Replaced the o2 sensor and cleared the SES. The light hasn't come back on. Pinging has not gone away.. Topped the oil off. It was very low. Ping seems to be gone now?
