    That fault code should relate to your oxygen sensor and or it's relevant wiring/fuse ;)

    I can't help you with that shumail I just looked up a list of fault codes and that came up for the code you posted. I cant even tell you for sure if your car has a fuse specific for the oxygen sensor, I'm sure someone more technically up to date than I will pick up on this thread shortly. Have you got a list of fuses in your handbook?

    P.S. as a rule the sensor is found in the exhaust system just ahead of the catalytic converter.

    while driving i hear a noise from the exhaust, feels like the exhaust is hitting the body..
    in regards to the oxygen sensor, how much will it cost??
