What Does P2198 Code Mean?

    OBD-II Code P2198 is defined as a O2 Sensor Signal Biased/Stuck Rich

    The Oxygen Sensor (or Air/Fuel Ratio Sensor) tells the engine control module how much oxygen is in the exhaust stream between the engine and the Catalytic Converter. The Oxygen Sensor's signal is supposed to fluctuate a minimum of 10 times per second within a specified range. If the engine's control module (PCM) determines that the Oxygen Sensor is not fluctuating throughout the normal range, the PCM will set code P2198.
