some places list that code as:

Exhaust gas temperature sensor circuit low, bank 1, sensor 1.


Is this the 02 sensor? there's 1 before and after the cat right?

Where would I find it?

I want to get this CEL off

guess i'll have to climb up under the van.. and can expect it to be a PITA
to get out? darn.

Do you have A/C and does it work properly?

Replace the blower motor resistor. It goes for about $10-$15 and can be changed in under 5 minutes.

The p0545 code is strictly about the A/C clutch control circuit and has nothing to do with the O2 sensor. Time to start tracing wires for signs of corrosion.
