Hey all, if anyone can give me an answer I would greatly appreciate it. Today I was driving and my check engine
light came on, so I then took it to Advanced to have them check the code. It turned out to be the bank 2 O2 Sensor (i had it replaced 5 or 6 months ago). Well, I live about 15 minutes from advanced and on my way home I noticed it started getting really hot in the car ( not the engine just the cabin). So, I turned the AC on and it blew really warm air for a second and then got cold, then I realized the heat was coming from the center console area from like underneath the center of the car where the parking brake lever is, near the 02 sensor and cat converter. I got scared thinking the car was going to blow up so I would stop every mile or so on the way home to let it cool.
Could the 02 sensor being broken cause the heat? Or. Could the heating of some sort have caused the 02 sensor to go out? It didn't get hot until the "check engine" light came on.
Or is there another possibility???
Thanks guys for your help!
