1999 Toyota Camry 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 77335 miles
I just got a check engine light on my 1999 Toyota Camry V6 sedan. My OBD2 car-code scanner software reports FAIL on these two items:
Under the OBD2 Mode $06 category:
TID "$07 Manuf Def", CID $01, Value -1 FAIL
TID "$07 Manuf Def", CID $10, Value -1 FAIL
I believe it refers to Bank 1, Sensor 2 Oxygen Sensor from what I read on a web search.
But in researching what O2 Sensor(s) to buy, it is confusing the way the auto parts stores list these O2 sensors. Some say that two "Before Catalytic Conv" are required, Some say one. And then the kicker is that one site warns that some Toyota Camry's with a VIN "F" or "G" letter, use an "Air to Fuel Ration" sensor instead of an O2 sensor and they say do not confuse the two similar looking sensors? So how do I know what sensor my particular car has? My VIN number starts with a "JTZ." Or something. Is it by beginning letter of the VIN number? Also, if I have the O2 sensor model Camry V6, which sensor is Bank 1, sensor 2? And where is it located. I see two similar looking O2 sensors under my hood. One is right up front on the exhaust pipe, the other is behind the engine in a tight spot between the firewall and engine. I take itthose are the two "Before Catalytic converter" O2 sensors? I don't see the "After Catalytic converter" O2 sensor. Any help would be appreciated.
have the same problem?
