code P2096- ***

Last night, while crusing home, under no boost at all, the cel came on, cruise started blinking, and I scanned the car and got the following via my ap.

P2096-post catalyst fuel trim system too lean bank 1.

Any ideas?

Are you running an after maket DP? I imagine you are. I used to get it all the time and now I only get it once every few months. It's no big deal. I even have the CEL fix, but sometime the code sneaks by.

I got that CEL when I didn't have the rear o2 sensor installed...

That doesn't make any sense to me. Boost leaks would cause you to run rich. Vacuum leaks would cause you to run lean.

The CEL claims to be too lean.

Datalog your MAF corrections. If your MAF corrections are all over the place (some +25% and some -25%), you probably do have a boost leak.

I have known holes in my turbo inlet, leaks in my manifold-tgv gasket, and my MAF corrections aren't even that bad. And I don't get that CEL.

before you beat your head against a rock too much further ...even a Cobb stage 2 OTS map has that code disabled...rear O2 codes are almost a certainty when you are running aftermarket CATs or none at all...

just disable any codes associated with the rear O2 sensor and go on with your day

This was the reason I bought an obdII code reader. The autozone guys were getting a little annoyed from having to clear my p2096 codes, haha.

no, when you flash a MAP to a car there is the ability to enable or disable the ECUs ability to set a CEL for most of the parameters that warrant them

it's a simple matter of unchecking a box

they should have IMO.....I am a bit surprised that P&l would send you out the door with such a simple issue...but you're not the first

When I originally tuned myself, this was the one code I missed. It would only pop up every 200-300 miles...
