P229E - NOx Sensor Circuit Bank 2
- Faulty Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) Sensor Bank 2
- Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) Sensor Bank 2 harness is open or shorted
- Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) Sensor Bank 2 circuit poor electrical connection
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
Each NOx sensor contains a sensing cell, a pumping cell, and a heater. A sample of exhaust gas passes through a diffusion gap between the sensing cell and the pumping cell. The NOx sensor maintains a constant reference voltage across the sensing cell. An electronic circuit within sensor controls the pump current through the pumping cell in order to maintain a constant voltage in the sensing cell. The amount of current required to maintain the reference voltage in the sensing cell is proportional to the concentration of NOx in the exhaust.
The ECM varies the amount of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) or reductant added by varying the reductant injector duty cycle in response to changes in engine exhaust out NOx levels. The smart NOx sensors consist of two components, the NOx module and the NOx sensor element that are serviced as a unit. A circuit or performance condition with a NOx sensor is detected by the NOx sensor module. The smart NOx sensor module communicates the condition to the ECM over the serial data line. The ECM sets a DTC when a serial data message is received from the NOx sensor module.
