Check engine light has been on because of 1157 error code

Hello everybody,

I have an 05 Honda accord with 145k+ miles on it. Everything has been great until a day ago my CEL came on. I tried to disconnect the battery to reset and the CEL has been there still.

I went to Advanced Auto Parts and got a P1157 error code. I've done some research and found out it is probably because of the Air/Fuel sensor (sometimes is referred to as O2 sensor). I am just trying to do some more research and ensure that it is the problem before I buy the part.

Does anybody else have the same problem as me?

Thank you, everybody.

Vinh.

Yes, buying the sensor and replacing it is the first step. Make sure you replace the correct one. It's the one near the exhaust headers.

I have a 05 with 137k. Replaced catalytic converter and j pipe as a preventive maintenance. After I reassembled everything, p1157 thrown. Replaced with a Denso oem part. 234-9040. $95 at NAPA. CEL cleared after battery disconnect.

Btw, advance has it too, find online coupon for $35 off. Pick up in store. Same net price as NAPA, $95.

OP don't make the mistakes countless people have made! Stick to OEM! Denso.

Just go on ebay and buy a brand new one for $100. Save yourself the hassle!

I have a 2.4L i4 EX. My car was purchased in CA but I am not in CA right now. Is the sensor different for CA?

Thanks.

Yes it's different for cali cars. They have stricter emissions. I believe there is a sticker on the hood that tells you if your car is a cali emissions vehicle.


It may not be your 02 sensor though.

Not trying to revive an old thread here, but just wanted to report a success story. I recently had a check engine light (first ever at 98,000 miles), and Autozone scanned it to reveal a P1157 code. I replaced the front O2 (LAF) Sensor (Honda part # 36531-RAA-A02) with a Bosch replacement part they had in stock. I know others have recommended going with OEM (Denso), but I got the Bosch for price and because of the convenience that it was immediately available. I also borrowed their O2 sensor socket kit, and one of the attachments fit in the area nicely.

When all was said and done, it was a really straight forward and quick repair. I made sure to disconnect the negative battery cable before starting. When I got everything put back together and started the car, the CEL was off and has stayed off! I'll be curious to see if I notice any improvements in MPG. It feels like the car's performance has improved overall, but that could be all psychological too. Kinda like how your car seems to run better right after being washed.

I enjoyed making the repair, saving some money, and learning something new. Thanks for the helpful posts!

I am trying to do the same repair, did you do the downstream sensor or upstream? I am guessing downstream, but I can't tell how you would know. Thanks
