Question about 1996 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Installing universal Oxygen sensor

I am installing a universal 4 wire bosch O2 sensor. You are supposed to crimp on to each wire a solderless connector that is supplied with the sensor and put each wire into the 4 pin connector. The wires on the O2 sensor are 1 green, 1 white and 2 black ones(internal sensor heater). The green wire is the negative signal wire, the white wire is the positive signal wire and the 2 black wires are the heater wires (heater wires are not polarity dependant).
The problem that I am having is that I dont know which wires on the wire harness connector are the + & - signal wires and which ones are the heater wires. It is also imperitive that the polarity of the signal wires are matched up. I searched all over on-line to find a wiring schematic for a 97 Honda civic and cant find one that you dont have to pay for. Any suggestions?

Hyundai Santa Fe 2001-05

How to Replace an Oxygen Sensor
Parts:
1. Oxygen Sensor
2. Oxygen Sensor

Tools:
1. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
2. Multimeter
3. Oxygen Sensor Socket
4. Combination Wrench Set
5. Crimp Tool
6. Socket Set
7. Scan Tool

Steps:
Step 1 * Park the vehicle on a level surface. Set the parking brake and open the hood.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
o Tip: Always make sure the struts on the hood can fully support the weight of the hood so that it does not close on you while working. The use of a hood prop can securely hold it in place.

Step 2 * With the engine off and cool, locate the defective oxygen sensor in the exhaust manifold or pipe. If necessary, lift the front of the vehicle and support it with jack stands.
o Tip: Most vehicles have multiple oxygen sensors. How many sensors, depends on the model year and type of engine.

Step 3 * Disconnect the wire connector at the defective oxygen sensor.

Step 4 * Remove the oxygen sensor from the exhaust system.

Step 5 * If you are installing a universal oxygen sensor, cut off the connector from the original sensor and splice the connector wires to the new oxygen sensor. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions supplied with the sensor.

Step 6 * For threaded oxygen sensors, apply anti-seize compound to the threads and install the new sensor.

Step 7 * For flange mounted oxygen sensors, install a new gasket and tighten the mounting bolts.

Step 8 * Reattach the wire connector from the sensor.

Step 9 * If necessary, connect the OBD I/II scanner and erase the fault code.

Hope help with this (remember rated and commented this help) Good luck.

Sometimes can be prematurely dirty air filter, sets off the air flow sensor, which sets off the o2 sensor. So might try new air filter first and erase codes and then see, before you spend more bucks than you need; then if codes return, do the flow mix sensor.
