I was having the same issues and had the top Lambda Sensors Changed out and it still returns with the same issue, before i change the exhaust ones next was wondering does the charcoal box make any impact on that error?

The reading off the ECT sensor is one of the parameters used to calculate the correct fuel/air mixture therefore if faulty there is the possibility of running too rich or too lean. It would also affect both banks.

As far as I know the one in the radiator is just for the radiator fan so will have no affect on how the car is running.

Did changing this sensor fix your lean faults? I'm having the same codes now and nothing obvious is wrong with the engine.
