2009 JK 55K had ECM replaced at 40K, dealer cover it under warranty. Check engine light came on took it by an auto parts store and borrowed a scan tool. Two codes came up; P 0038 ( heater control circuit high bank 1 sensor 2), and P 0155 (sensor heater circuit malfunction bank 2 sensor 1). After a couple of tries the dealer ended up replacing the ECM.
