The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the heater in the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) for correct operation. The PCM controls the heater on/off duty cycle to maintain a temperature of 780°C (1,436°F). The test fails when the sensor does not warm up to the required temperature in a calibrated amount of time. The test also fails when the PCM is not able to maintain the required temperature after the sensor is warm.
