#5477 of 5646 Fuel -air sensor code 2195
Nov 29, 2011 (7:10 pm)
Can anyone shed some light on this. My check engine light came on and had code read at Auto zone which read 2195 ( oxgen or fuel-air sensor) went to local mechanic who I trust and he got same code but said readings on the sensors say they are good. He suggested to go to Toyota dealership and have them read the codes. There is a TSB from 2008 -TSB-0114008 which seems to apply to my car which is a 2007 Camry V-6. The problem I conserned about is the TSB covers the work under warranty in the first 3 years or 36,000. I have complained to Toyota that my car has not been right since day one. Been throuhg all the Trans issues and have always let them know my Gas milage has never been right. After reading more about the TSB they call for new design sensors and to relace the manifold so the new sensors will fit.
This TSB tells me Toyota was aware of a flaw in these sensors.
What I'm afraid of is they are going to try to hit me with a huge bill after they tell me I need to replace sensors and intake manifold.
I have paper work stating that my MPG is not right but they always told me it was normal and driving habits.
Do you think Toyota will consider the complaints I had in 2007 and 2008 While the car was still under warranty?
Thanks for your insight, chuck

There's no need for you or me to guess about what Toyota might or might not cover: All you need to do to conclusively find out the answer is to contact the regional Toyota Customer Service Center; explain this situation to them, along with providing all relevant details; and ask them whether they will cover this repair. This can be done without bringing your car into the dealership or having them work on it. That way; you'll know in advance whether they'll cover the work or not; and you can decide whether to have it done based on that information.

take it to a different dealer. What you are discribing is the famous transmission software lag that the 2007 to 2009 camrys have and is covered by recall.

Yes......when you take the car in, tell the service guys you need the procedure described in the famous TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) that describes how the ECM (Engine Control Module) should be flashed/reprogrammed so that the car doesn't stall or "freeze" while trying to decide which gear to go into....if any....when you "step on it" in an attempt to get around a left-hand turn before the oncoming traffic T-bones you!!
If they're on the ball, they'll know about this TSB (it's been around for several years now). If they're morons.....come back here and someone will provide the exact number of the document for you. (Sorry I don't have it onhand....but the dealer SHOULD!)

Thank you Zanken for your reply. I spoke with Toyota 1800 line and gave them the details about my car. After hearing my story and putting me on hold for 10 mins they came back saying they can't OK the repair under warranty. The warranty only covered 3 years 36,000 and I was 20,000 miles over that.
That being said I decided to unplug my battery again to reset the codes. I did this a few day ago and the check engine light would come back on after 20 mins. Tonight I drove it for 45 mins and still no light.
I notice on first start after connecting battery again is was a rough start and had to turn the key twice. Did I clear some bad Gas or something? Is it possible the sensor was stuck in lean position fixed itself? My mechanic not from Toyota told me that when he checked the car he got the 2195 code but said the sensors on Bank 1 were reading good. He didn't reset the codes because he wanted Toyota to be ablle to read them. I'm nervous about taking the car to Toyota and land up with a huge bill$$$.
Well, thanks for taking the time to read this and I always appreciate your advice.

The computer software reflash only takes 20 minutes. So even if you did have to pay for it, you would not have a lot of money out of your pocket. There are no parts that they replace, just a quick software reprogramming.

Thank you for your reply. Are you saying I may only need to have the computer reflashed? Is there a TSB on this?

Yes. And there is a TSB for this that takes all of 20 minutes to complete. The TSB # has been posted here and other websites (Toyotanation). Look for something like hesitation - acceleration.

Thank you for your reply. I'm not sure the TSB you are refering to applies to my problem. My problem is a check engine light with a code 2195 which indicates a problem with a fuel-air sensor. After disconnecting the battery the check engine light does not come back on until 20-40 minutes of driving. Is it possible the sensor is OK and other factors are contributing to that code 2195? My local mechanic said the sensors showed a good reading and that I would need to take the car to Toyota the figure out the reason for the 2195 reading.
Thank you for any insight you might have.

does anyone have insight on other factors causing this code besides fuel -air ratio sensor? Car still starts and is drivable
