  • P2238 2009 Honda Accord Description

    The Air/Fuel ratio (A/F) sensor (sensor 1) is installed in the exhaust system and detects oxygen content in the exhaust gas. The A/F sensor transmits output voltage to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). A heater for the sensor element is embedded in the A/F sensor (sensor 1). It heats the sensor to stabilize and speed the detection of oxygen content. The increase in current through the heater levels off as the voltage applied to the electrode reaches a certain range because the amount of oxygen that goes through the diffusion layer is limited. The current is proportional to oxygen content in the exhaust gas, so the air/fuel ratio is detected by the measurement of the current. The PCM compares a set target air/fuel ratio with the detected air/fuel ratio and controls the fuel injection duration. If the A/F sensor (sensor 1) voltage is low, the air/fuel ratio is lean, and the PCM uses A/F feedback control to issue a rich command. If the A/F sensor (sensor 1) voltage is high, the air/fuel ratio is rich, and the PCM uses A/F feedback control to issue a lean command. If the element is not activated or the PCM terminal voltage is a set value or less for a set time when power is drawn to the A/F sensor (sensor 1) heater, a malfunction is detected and a DTC is stored.
