Asked by Nov 04, 2015 at 08:36 PM about the 2003 Subaru Baja

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

3 Answers

Codes are p0038 and p0030


These codes are saying that there is something wrong with the heater control circuit that warms up the O2 sensor. Either there is a problem with the wiring, connection, or in the O2 sensor itself. The O2 sensor cannot be fixed, only replacement is required.


The O2 sensor heaters' grounds are switched by the ECU. so check those big connectors under the passenger side carpeting too.
