    Error Code p2202- 2002 Petrol Polo 1.4 FSI

    Hi there,

    Bought this car 2 days ago of a dealer who said he changed the lambda sensor bank 1. Drove off and the MIL flashed up.

    As the title saus, OBDII come up with P2202 error, which apparently is NOx sensor bank 1.

    Any ideas on a possible fix,

    Cheers.

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0, only what I've added from this post.

    You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.


    EOBD II Error Code: P2202

    Fault Location:
    Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) Sensor 1 (G295), Bank 1 - Low Input/Short Circuit to Earth

    Possible Cause:
    Fuse(s).
    Wiring/Connector(s) short to earth.
    Nitrogen oxides (NOx) sensor 1 (G295).

    Possible Solutions:
    Check/Replace Fuse(s).
    Check/Replace all faulty Wiring/Connector(s).
    Read Measuring Value Blocks (MVB).
    Check/Replace Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) Sensor 1 (G295), Bank 1.

    Bought a 2002 VW Polo 1.4L FSI Manual Transmission just over two weeks ago. The check engine light came up after one day of driving.

    Tested with an OBD2 reader, Error P2202 NOx bank 1 sensor came up. The dealer said he had already changed the sensor.

    Took it to the dealer, he changed the same 02 sensor again. Again after one day of driving the check engine light has popped up and the same P2202 error has come up.

    Has anyone got any idea what the hell is going on here?

    Furthermore, when idling and low gears the cars started to have a jerking motion, does anyone have an idea what this could be?

    Thank you for any help,

    Much appreciated

    I suspect they have changed the wrong sensor, the AXU has four exhaust sensors so you need to know the EXACT details of the sensor that was replaced, it’s VW part number is 03C 906 261 and costs 196.33 from VW.

    Thanks Crasher, much appreciated.

    He said he changed the O2 sensor so I'm guessing the O2 sensor is where the NOX sensor should be or the faulty NOX sensor is still there and the O2 sensor has just been replaced. Either way it explains the loss in power and increase in fuel consumption.

    He said he will take it to his friend who is an auto-electrician to fix. But I have a feeling he will just disconnect the NOX sensor completely so to reduce the cost of buying the sensor itself. Will this affect the car in anyway? And would you recommend just buying the sensor and getting it done properly?

    Also is this the correct diagram: https://workshop-manuals.com/volkswa..._add-on_parts/

    And is this the correct part: https://www.motor-doctor.co.uk/produ...r-nox-catalyst

    Thanks again,

    Craig

    Also Crasher, according to this diagram https://workshop-manuals.com/volkswa..._add-on_parts/
    it seems that the NOx sensor (part number 03C 906 261), would be different to the NOx sender (
    G295- bank 1) as described in KeithUK's post.

    On that diagram the
    NOx sender (G295- bank 1) has 14-pin black connector and the
    NOx sender control unit -J583- has a 10-pin connector. So I believe G292 bank 1 is at fault so is that the same as this part https://www.motor-doctor.co.uk/produ...r-nox-catalyst ?

    Cheers,
