What Does P0054 Code Mean?

    OBD-II Code P0054 is defined as a HO2S Heater Resistance

    The purpose of the oxygen sensor is to measure the oxygen content in the exhaust gases after they leave the combustion process of the engine. The oxygen sensor must be at a certain temperature in order for this information to be accurate. The oxygen sensor has a heater wire inside to help bring the sensor up to temperature quicker. When the PCM detects the heater wire is not operating, it will set P0054.

    I have a problem with my car Chevrolet spark, 2014, automatic, 1.0 Letter. Appearing a check engine with code P0054, we replaced the sensor 3 times with used ones, the same problem after 30 to 40 km, then we fixed anew universal Bosh sensor after consulting Bosh customer service, the same problem. we checked the fuses, wiring, computer, everything is OK, and the problem is still appear. What we should do? please.
