P1283 NISSAN

P1283 NISSAN - Air Fuel Ratio Sensor 1 Lean Shift Monitoring Bank 2

Possible causes
- Faulty Air fuel ratio (A/F) sensor 1 Bank 2
- Faulty Air fuel ratio (A/F) sensor 1 heater Bank 2
- Fuel pressure
- Faulty Fuel injector
- Intake air leaks
- Faulty Air Flow Meter
Tech notes
If one or more sensors are replaced the Engine Control Module (ECM) Mixture Ratio Self-Learning clearing procedure must be perform.

Sentra ECM Self-Learning procedure

Altima ECM Self-Learning procedure

Maxima ECM Self-Learning procedure

When is the code detected?
The output voltage computed by ECM from the A/F sensor 1 (Bank 2) signal is shifted to the lean side for a specified period.
Symptoms

- Possible rough engine idle
P1283 NISSAN Description
The A/F sensor is a planar dual-cell limit current sensor. The sensor element of the A/F sensor is the combination of a Nernst concentration cell (sensor cell) with an oxygen-pump cell, which transports ions. It has a heater in the element.
The sensor is capable of precise measurement λ= 1, but also in the lean and rich range. Together with its control electronics, the sensor outputs a clear, continuous signal throughout a wide λ range (0.7 < λ < air).
The exhaust gas components diffuse through the diffusion gap at the electrode of the oxygen pump and Nernst concentration cell, where they are brought to thermodynamic balance.
An electronic circuit controls the pump current through the oxygen-pump cell so that the composition of the exhaust gas in the diffusion gap remains constant at λ = 1. Therefore, the A/F sensor is able to indicate air/fuel ratio by this pumping of current. In addition, a heater is integrated in the sensor to ensure the required operating temperature of 700 - 800 C (1,292 - 1,472 F).
