After get battery replacement service in GM dealer, I got 'Service Engine Soon' light on dash board with code p0135 on my montana. Before that my car have not had any problem.
How to fix it? thanks any comment and help! except following comment:
Possible causes
- Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit fuse
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit open shorted to ground
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
Help with this
Tech notes
The code means that there is a problem with the heater element circuit of the heated oxygen sensor. The control module monitors how long it take the sensor to warm up and start sending an adequate signal. The code is triggered when the sensor is taking too long to warm up. Before replacing the sensor, check for the condition of the heated oxygen sensor fuse and connectors. If the sensor and connector are OK, replacing the O2 Sensor 1 usually takes care of the problem

When is the code detected?
If the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detects that the process took too much time for the HO2S to enter into normal operating range, a DTC sets. The time the process takes the HO2S to reach operating temperature is based on the amount of air that flows into the engine.
Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible higher than usual fuel Consumption
P0135 PONTIAC Description
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) supplies a bias voltage (approximately 450 mV) on the Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) signal high and low circuits. When you turn the ignition to the ON position, battery voltage is supplied to the HO2S heater. As the heater reaches the operating temperature, the HO2S voltage responds by changing from a bias voltage range to the normal operation. Typically, as the HO2S reaches the operating temperature, the HO2S voltage goes from a bias voltage to a voltage below 300 mV. Depending on the exhaust gas content, it is possible for the HO2S voltage to go above 450 mV.
The PCM runs the heater test only on a cold start (depends on the cumulative air flow) and only once an ignition cycle. When you start the engine the PCM monitors the HO2S voltage. When the HO2S voltage goes above or below the bias range threshold, the PCM determines how much time it took.

Check the fuse underhood first then have a pro look at it unless you are great at seeing wiring issues. It may have blown a fuse when the new battey was installed.I f not a fuse have apro diagnose as this can a lot of things that you have mentioned. It may be fuse ign 1 underhood fuse block

Thanks for your direction!
The two fuses were ok.
But I do not know where is the two sensors located. It looks like difficult to find them and replace them by myself. If know place than I ca detect the voltage and amp.

Thanks!
I have several diagrams also but it is difficult to identify. I need to look an manual to identify it soon. Also, I will go to dealer talk about this matter. To see if they can fix the code free. When Tech install battery he may touched some where wrongly.
Again thanks!

I found a sensor located under the car on the exhaust pipe. It may be sensor 2?
Thanks!

No. I think it may be different. I only can see under the car but could not see it under hood.

Thanks Hmac300!
I got replaced O2 sensor at Dealer with part cost. The tech charged me $226 at first for the replacement. I was their customer for 9 years. I could not accept that and talked with manager in detail, and she only charged part cost. But they do not have stock. I bought it in Advanced auto parts and go free service replaced. I paid $60.

Thanks again Hmac300 for your nice comment and help!
In the future if I met problem I will look for you.
Yours.

I got manual copies in Advance Auto Part including image and repair methods that was very useful.
Cheers.
