Are NOx sensors interchangeable?

Are NOx sensors interchangeable?

From my understanding they are exactly the same as far as physical design, composition and both function by the Nernst cell principle. All NOx/oxygen sensors do.

Are all NOx sensors the same?

Depending on the vehicle’s make and model, the components present can vary. A typical system would comprise a turbocharger, a DPF, and an SCR catalyst – with the NOx sensor sitting upstream from the catalyst. More than one NOx sensor may be present in some vehicles, featuring both an upstream and downstream sensor.

Is it safe to drive with a faulty NOx sensor?

A bad knock sensor may also not let the engine accelerate properly while driving on the highway, and cause the vehicle to lose fuel mileage. Once the computer realizes the knock sensor is not working properly, your vehicle will most likely lose power.

Why are NOx sensors so expensive?

Another drawback of amperometric NOx sensors is their high cost due to the multiple chamber design and the requirement for complex electronics to detect nanoampere current levels.

What are the symptoms of a faulty NoX sensor?

Some common symptoms of a vehicle which has a NOx sensor displaying this code include the check engine light being illuminated, excessive smoke from the exhaust and inconsistent fuel economy. This is another diagnostic P229F62 or P229F code which indicates a faulty NOx sensor.

Where can I get a new NoX sensor?

Around 500-1200 EUR will get you a new NOx sensor to replace the faulty one on your vehicle. While it is an ideal solution, you still run a risk of it happening in the future, meaning that there will be more money spent on repairs. Refurbished NOx sensors are very commonly found in garages, services and part shops.

How many NOx sensors are in a DAF truck?

In some cases (such as DAF trucks or in all Euro 6 trucks, such as Volvo, Mercedes, Scania, IVECO, Renault, MAN) there would be 2 NOx sensors (one additional sensor before the SCR system) which would determine the amount of AdBlue needed to inject to have near-perfect NOx conversion. What happens when the NOx sensor fails?

What are the NoX sensor codes for SCR?
