    P1031 is most likely a bad heater circuit in the bank 1 sensor 1 O2 sensor. Disconnect the sensor the two black wires at the sensor should have continuity across them or the heater element in the sensor is bad. Ignition on you should have 12 volts at the connector end of one of the two wires that attach to the element circuit.
    The second code is also sensor related. Look at this link

    Have you identified the right sensor?
    Oxygen sensors are identified by bank and sensor position. Sensor 1 is always pre catalytic converter, sensor two is always post catalytic converter. If an engine is a 4 or 6 cylinder engine the whole engine is considered bank 1, if an engine is a V6, V8, V10....., the engine bank containing cylinder number 1 (first cylinder in the firing order) is considered Bank 1, the other bank is considered Bank 2. Interpretation Oxygen sensor designation B2S1 refers to Bank 2 Sensor 1, it will be the sensor on the engine side of the catalytic converter in bank two. Check this link to determine the cylinder that contains cylinder number 1. http://www.wellsve.com/custom_searches/ds_firing.php
    There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online

    First it is not a O2 sensor. It's a Air Fuel Ratio Sensor. There's a big difference. Here is a possible procedure to fix the problem. Also a definition of the codes.

    Customer Concern: Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) is ON. Setting Air/Fuel (A/F) ratio sensor heater circuit codes P1031, P1051 and closed loop bank 1 and closed loop bank 2 codes P1148, P1168.

    Tests/Procedures: 1. Check voltage to the A/F ratio sensor heaters on the Red/Yellow wire (harness side color) at either A/F ratio sensor - look for battery voltage key ON.

    2. If low or no voltage to the A/F ratio sensors on the Red/Yellow wire, check 15 amp fuse #15 in the under-dash fuse box for being loose, blown or missing.


    P1031 Air Fuel Sensor (Bank 1 Sensor 1) Heater Circuit Low Voltage - With Automatic TransmissionPossible Causes Setting Conditions
    •AFS 1/1 connector is damaged (check pins for damage, and for moisture)
    •AFS 1/1 heater control circuit is open or shorted to ground
    •AFS 1/1 heater power (12v) circuit is open (check fuse 85 in Engine Room box)
    •AFS 1/1 heater has failed
    •PCM has failed
    Engine running at idle speed; ECT signal more than 168ºF, Bank 1 Air Fuel Sensor 1 (AFS 1/1) heater commanded "on", and the PCM detected a low voltage condition on the heater circuit, and the AFS 1/1 heater current was out of the normal operating range.

    This code sets in 2 Trip(s).
    This code will turn on the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp)

    P1051 Air Fuel Sensor (Bank 2 Sensor 1) Heater Circuit Low Voltage - With Automatic TransmissionPossible Causes Setting Conditions
    •AFS 2/1 connector is damaged (check pins for damage, and for moisture)
    •AFS 2/1 heater control circuit is open or shorted to ground
    •AFS 2/1 heater power (12v) circuit is open (check fuse 85 in Engine Room box)
    •AFS 2/1 heater has failed
    •PCM has failed
    Engine running at idle speed; ECT signal more than 168ºF, Bank 2 Air Fuel Sensor 1 (AFS 2/1) heater commanded "on", and the PCM detected a low voltage condition on the heater circuit, and the AFS 2/1 heater current was out of the normal operating range.

    This code sets in 2 Trip(s).
    This code will turn on the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp)
