CODE 0060

2003 Ford Explorer • 109,000 miles

Code p0060 keeps coming up. After I replaced the o2 two times and it's the only code that is shown. It will not let the other monitors set. 2003 Ford Explorer. 4.0 sohc. Check engine light comes on as a pending code and not as a hard set code . It Will not pass. We have tested power to o2 and it is getting power. But putting out low Voltage. It's Bank 2 sensor 2. It runs great! And no other problems. We have tested everything and still don't know. Need an answer ASAP. Can't spend more money for nothing. We have replaced all CATs about a year ago. Nothing wrong then. Only has about 109,000 miles. North Carolina inspection is already passed due Tag will be expired by the weekend. I need to know if it is wiring or cat because it cant be the sensor or do you think it is the pcm.I have been looking for answers for the last two weeks its like nobody has had this problem in past

Your problem could simply be a dirty IAC, which is causing a fuel mixture imbalance. This valve is easily removed and cleaned. Use Gum-out cleaner. Run it through your PCV valve and hose and throttle body with engine RUNNING, at various speeds. This should shock the sensor back into working properly.

Other than that, you need to check the wiring at the sensor. There is a wire that heats the sensor. Make sure it is clean and making good contact.

Let me know if this helps.
