Hi all,
I have a 2009 Sportage 4x4, the engine management light started flashing a few weeks ago, so put a tester on it and code P2032 showed as the fault, (exhaust gas temperature sensor). Bought a brand new sensor (not cheap are they), fitted it and erased the error code. Went for a drive and ping; Cameron again, put the tester on it and P2032 ,same code comes up.

Anyone have any ideas or advice?

Many thanks.

It is important to understand that the fault code is not necessarily reporting a faulty sensor. It is reporting an unexpected value from that sensor. With no better diagnostic this can be guesswork, but it could be a wiring or comnnector fault or a dead catalytic converter.

Did you scan for all codes?

Can your device report live data?

Thanks for the reply, appreciated.

No, my device is a standard £25 OBD from ebay, i will have to get it booked in somewhere.

Was it the temperature sensor on the Dpf you replaced. It is mounted on a gland on the side of the dpf & gets routed up through the floor of the car coming out under the drivers seat? If its that sensor it will throw a fault unless the sensor is sufficiently shoved in on the gland. A good few people on here have replaced that sensor. Its used to measure the exhaust temperature for purpose of doing dpf regenerations.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
No, the sensor that can be reached form under the bonnet, back of the engine next to the turbo.

Did you read a P2032 Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor Circuit Low
or
P2032 Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor Circuit High
or
something else?

There are two Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensors, I think you replaced Sensor 1
I believe although not an expert Sensor 2 is on the DPF, this sensor can come loose due to heat damage & slide out or the wiring can get snagged.

Sensor 2 is definitely the one on the DPF. They are numbered away from the engine - 1 is at the manifold and 2 is on the DPF.
