P0043 TOYOTA Possible Causes

  • Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 3
  • Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 3 harness is open shorted
  • Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 3 circuit poor electrical connection
  • Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 3 fuse
  • Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)

First diagnose P0043 TOYOTA code

    Check the "Possible Causes" listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded terminals.

P0043 TOYOTA Tech Notes

The code means that there is a problem with the heater element circuit of the heated oxygen sensor. Water getting inside the heated oxygen sensor connector can caused the heated oxygen sensor fuse to blow, which is a very common problem for this type codes. Before replacing the sensor, check for the condition of the heated oxygen sensor fuse and connectors.

Cost of diagnosing the P0043 TOYOTA code

    Labor: 1.0

    The cost of diagnosing the P0043 TOYOTA code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair labor rates vary by location, your vehicle's make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repairs shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.

When is the P0043 TOYOTA code detected?

The P0043 is set when the ECM detects an excessively low voltage through the heated oxygen sensor heater circuit

P0043 TOYOTA Possible Symptoms

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

P0043 Toyota Description

Oxygen Sensors (O2S) or Heated Oxygen Sensors (HO2S) need to reach a minimum operating temperature of 750 degrees F to produce an accurate voltage signal. The faster the heated oxygen sensor reaches that temperature the faster the sensor will start sending an accurate signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM).

In order to achieve the require temperature, a heater element is included inside the heated oxygen sensor. The ECM controls the heated oxygen sensor heater element based on signals from the engine coolant temperature and engine load. The ECM controls the heater element circuit by allowing current flow to ground.

The ECM monitors the voltage signal received through the heater element circuit and determines the state of the circuit by comparing the voltage detected with the factory specifications.
