I have a 2013 turbo beetle TSI. Check engine light came on. Ran Ross Tech software on it. Came up with an O2 sensor issue B1S1 P0030. Since the car is only 2 years old I think it is an error. Car only has about 40,000 miles on it.

Is anyone aware of this issue on such a new car?

Any ideas on what may cause the sensor to go out so soon?

Anyone know where the fuse is that may cause the problem?

Well, it is possible the heater circuit; of the 02 sensor has broken (open circuit). In my case; when I removed it, I was able to test it according to the service manual and my multimeter, confirmed that the circuit was bad. I bought a genuine Bosch replacement and the new one, tested fine and when installed, the problem went away.

You might contact your local VW dealer and see, if this would be covered under warranty or if they have a recall on this part. When my 02' was new; my CEL came on for the 02 sensor and there was a revised 02 sensor part and they reflashed the ecu as well.

If it isn't covered; replacing and testing the old 02 sensor, is not that hard and can save you allot of money. You might have to purchase a 02 sensor socket; that is available at most auto parts stores (as cheap as $6 at Harbor Freight; look online for a 20% off coupon):

Look up your sensor here:
(be sure to look by your engine code and get the "oe" version, not the "universal" version)

Because, this car is so new; there aren't any printed manuals out there but you could get a one day subscription to erWin (VW's online subscription service and access, to factory service manuals) and download, all the manuals in .pdf, for your car here:

Ok, yeah if the car is under warranty; I would take it to the vw dealer. Be sure to take advantage of the warranty; while you have it! Once, it is gone; you are generally on your own! ;) While you are there; make sure, to ask them to see if there are any "open recalls" on your car and have them done, while you have the car there.

I just googled your issue to see if anyone else had it yet.

I had this issue on my 2013 Beetle TDi, but the issue started within the 1st month of purchase (2/2013). Siince then they replaced multiple O2 sensors, and the wiring harness before I had to initiate a lemon law claim. For me the issue usually happened in the winter.

See this thread that I had updated recently.

VWVortex.com - My 2013 Beetle TDI w/ Sun Sound & Nav might be a lemon

I probably wont check back here, the end result of the lemon law case was after owning it for about 2y8m, everything but $1500 was refunded (including sales tax, loan interest, etc)
