Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Bank 1 Sensor 2
Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 2 harness is open or shorted
Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 2 circuit poor electrical connection
Faulty Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
Code P0054 Mazda Description
The Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) must reach the operating temperature to provide an accurate voltage signal. A heating element inside the HO2S minimizes the time required for the sensor to reach operating temperature. Voltage is provided to the heater by the ignition 3 voltage circuit through a fuse. With the engine running, the ground is provided to the heater by the HO2S heater low control circuit, through a low side driver within the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). The PCM commands the heater ON or OFF to maintain a specific HO2S operating temperature range. The PCM determines the temperature by measuring the current flow through the heater. When the heater is in the ON state, the PCM will pulse the heater OFF for a duration of 50 ms, once per second. The PCM calculates the heater resistance on a cold start. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will set if the heater current requirements too low or high in the HO2S heater control circuit.
