1998 bmw 328i 02 sensors connectors


bank 2 sensor 1 is a heated oxygen sensor in the manifold or exhaust before the cat converter
it is not an o2 sensor which is oxygen sensor after the cat converter for bank 2
two completely different sensors
the fuel trim code appears because of the problem sensors
the fuel trim is cpu program in the computer in the ECM setting a optimum fuel /air ratio after a period of driving
if the sensors both HO2s and O2 sensors are faulty then the cpu cannot set the fuel trim

Where is the 02 Oxygen Sensor before the cadalic converter on a 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe


Usually these are located on the exhaust manifold or just below the exhaust manifold and you should be able to see it in the engine bay. On V6 engines there will be one sensor on each of the 2 exhaust banks.
You will probably need to remove the engine cover to see the sensors on your exhaust.

If someone told you to replace these because you got a particular fault code I would be wary. A decent scan tool and basic diagnostics can show if the 02 sensor is working or not. Some faults often blamed on an 02 sensor are not due to faulty sensors.

ABS warning light comes on 1994 E36 318i BMW


Suggest you go to some of the BMW forum sites for more detailed responses. This could be speed sensors located at the wheel hub area or an ABS module. The wires run up near and along where the brake pad sensor wires are located. Sensors aren't too hard to change and aren't too costly, the module, on the other hand is expensive.

My 1995 525i has fault code 12210 O2 sensor message. I replaced sensor- same code. I unplugged new O2 sensor but left sensor engaged in exhaust pipe. I read the output and it was very lean. In this...


if the 02 sensor is unplugged and you are reading a scan tool from the diagnostic link then of course the 02 reading is wrong
if you are using a volt meter right at the connector thats on the sensor then the 02 will read lean because the heating elements in it are disconnected when you unplug it
check 02 voltage with engine warmed up and 02 sensor connected you will have to pierce insulation with your probe

Bank one is toward the front of the vehicle. Sounds like the heated oxygen sensors have gone bad. The Oxygen Sensors are located in the exhaust pipe and require a special socket to remove and replace.

Installing 02 sensors


"Up-stream" means before the catalytic converters and are probably in the header pipe(s). The "down-stream" O2 sensors are behind the cats in the exhaust system, usually just behind them. Not the expert here on this particular car but there are probably 4 of these sensors. BMW exhaust systems are very tight on space, be careful tackling this job.
