Diagnostic Code 97 Civic

1997 Honda Civic LX 5 spd

Engine Malfunction Light

any idea what this is?

and cost to repair?

is this something that I can do or does this have to go to a Honda shop?

Thanks for your advice

Havent checked, but if I recall, that is a failed o2 heater.

Determining which sensor.......You definitely have at least 2, possibly 3 or 4....is the trick....

Any reputable shop can take care of this for you...it does not need to go to honda.

If you can, have it scanned again , and get the position......

sensor 1 is before the cat, sensor 2 is after. Replacing the sensor itself is a matter of unscrewing it and installing a new one, but you must check the heater circuit wiring on the proper sensor position before continuing.

Yes, it reads the gasses in the exhaust stream and reports a value to the computer or rather the variation in voltage is read by the computer and interpreted.
