    O2 sensor 2 is the one on the back of the cat converter. Check for a bad ground or corroded terminal.

    Have you checked the fender grounds on the drivers side fender? You'll have to remove your battery to get to them, but they're a known area that can rust or break from corrosion caused by a vapor leak from the battery. I'd pull the battery, clean those connectors and see what happens. pt006 and I are also both members on a PT Cruiser forum. If you're interested in joining us, let one of us know and we'll give you the site link.

    You may be able to feel a cylinder misfire as a roughness or shaking. The #1 spark plug tip may appear a different color than the other 3 if this is a problem with this particular cylinder.
    OEM spark plugs (Champion/NGK) Copper core is recommended. New plug wires are recommended every other spark plug change. I have also had issues with non OEM O2 sensors, particularly generic/universal or Bosch O2 sensors. NGK or NTK are the OEM O2 sensor supplier.
    A misfiring spark plug will send unburned oxygen into the exhaust system where an O2 sensor will see unburned oxygen as a lean mixture. The PCM will try to compensate by driving the injectors rich. This can make matters worse for a carbon fouled spark plug.
    The fan control circuit fault code may be unrelated. What is the 'P' code of the circuit fault?

    Thanks for input guys. Cleaned grounds & replaced #1 plug wire. Passed. Good for another 2 years. Your help greatly appreciated.

    Cliff, go to www.ptcruiserlinks.com. Both pt006 and I are members there too. And some of the other guys here are too, I just don't remember who else. Having had two brain surgeries messed up my short term memory.
