02 Liberty 3.7 : Several problems

Hello all, hoping to get some help on a few annoying issues.

I have the P0161 code which keeps coming up.

As I understand that this is the downstream sensor in rear passenger side of the vehicle. Am I correct?

Can someone provide an exact location where it is located?
I also read it could be the fuse, where is this fuse located?


2nd issue I am having is the Airbag light coming on.

I have read about some seat belt sensor under the seat. I looked under and didnt see anything. Can someone give more details regarding this?

The right rear 02 is just behind the right front wheel. It is the only sensor that can come out without taking the cat off. I would replace the sensor to get rid of the P0161 CEL. A NTK sensor is $32 at www.Rockauto.com
As for the airbag light, it could be related to a recall that Jeep has yet to act on. Call a dealership and ask them what the deal is.

Thanks.

I went to a dealer and they said the airbag recall does not affect my liberty. Wanted to charge me $180 just to diagnose the airbag light problem! Bunch of crooks.

Airbag may be the clockspring. Ideally you need to get the codes read to see which airbag is failing but it is quite common on an older KJ for the clockspring to start wearing out. You can replace it yourself without too much difficulty.....and the 2002 does not have a sensor under the seat.
