Possible causes - Air/Fuel Ratio Sensor Bank 2 harness is open or shorted - Air/Fuel Ratio Sensor Bank 2 circuit poor electrical connection - Faulty Air/Fuel Ratio Sensor Bank 2 - Inappropriate fuel pressure - Faulty fuel injectors - Intake air leaks may be faulty - Exhaust gas leaks Tech description What about the obd code? If the IPB 2 terminal voltage is out of a specified range, the PCM detects a malfunction and stores a DTC. Symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) - High Fuel Consumption - Excessive Smoke from Exhaust P2240 Cadillac Description The front air/fuel ratio (A/F) sensor (bank 2, sensor 1) is installed in the exhaust manifold and detects oxygen content in the exhaust gas. The front A/F sensor transmits output voltage to the powertrain control module (PCM). The PCM controls fuel injection duration by comparing the target air/fuel ratio with the front A/F sensor signal. The sensor includes the VS cell, the pump cell, the atmospheric reference cavity, the diffusion layer, and the heater, and it enables overall feedback control. Right out of the book.

It looks like they didn't do a roadtest after the first code was fixed or they would have found this one.

They won't pass it for inspection just because the light is on. not that it won't pass emissions,that part will pass, It's really a matter of finding or figuring out why the light will not stay off,and i guess for what was said to me that was the only code that came up. idk Thank you for all your Help, i will give this info to the Mechanic and maybe he can get this fixed, He did say that he tried just about everything he knows so we'll see Thank You
