My 2000 Impreza Outback Sport is giving me a P1133 code.
Anyone with experience on this. I guess its the O2 sensor
but which one (I guess I have 2). Don't suppose anyone
has a good one to part with ?

Well that code, at least of an '00OBW, is front oxygen (a/f) sensor heater circuit high input.

Unfortunately, in the troubleshooting procedure for this issue, it never says replace the o2 sensor; the only item it lists for replacement is the ECM. Other things include repairing battery short circuit in harness between ECM and front o2 sensor; read front o2 sensor heater current and make sure value is less than 2.3A (otherwise replace ECM), shake the harnesses.

Porcupine is correct, but 'melted' shorted heater wires could cause this also. Check the wires by the front oxygen sensor and be certain they were not on the exhaust and melted there. P1133 is a direct short sensed by the ECU which is why the suspects are the ECU and the wiring harness.

I have never seen this code, but I would imagine a shorted heater element in the front oxygen sensor could cause this also.

I bet an ECM would be an expensive item...hope I don't need one.
May be a few days till I get to look under it, thanks.
