Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Replace oxygen sensor for 4cyl 01" Accord - wires don't match

The wire colors don’t match the scheme of the code reference instructions.

My old one has 2 blacks, 1 white, 1 green. I must connect the new one to these wires.

The new (universal o2 sensor) one has 1 black,1 gray and 2 white wires.

Finally, I guess I'd ask if it will cause damage if I try it one way to see if it works then try reversing the wires if it doesn't work?
For example:
-wire the black and gray (of new part) to the two blacks (original wires)
-wire one white (of new part) to white and the other white to the green?

Don't put a universal oxygen sensor in your vehicle. You will have nothing but problems, and you will have to put an OEM one in it anyway.

2007 tl type s where is bank 2 sensor 1 oxygen sensor located. What is the replacement number of a sensor to kill Emission p0171 Notice and light


Oxygen sensors monitor the exhaust stream, comparing the oxygen content in it to the oxygen content of ambient air. When oxygen content is low, sensor voltage is high. When oxygen content is high, sensor voltage is low. The voltage created by the sensor is sent to the DME (engine control module) to help maintain a proper fuel mixture. The mixture preparation is used to keep the catalytic converters running at peak efficiency. The oxygen sensors used in E60 models covered in this article has four wires. Two of which are for oxygen sensor heating and two for the signal. The heater is used to get the sensor online faster. Previously, exhaust heat was used. One wire supplied a ground to the sensor for the signal, and the other was for the sensor signal.
Oxygen sensors should be replaced every 100,000 miles. In a perfect world that would be it. Wait until a specified mileage and replace the sensor. However, these sensors fail prematurely, set oxygen sensor fault codes and reduce fuel economy. In this article, I will show you how to identify the location of all four oxygen sensors and how to replace them. You will need an oxygen sensor socket to remove the sensors and remember to always work with a cool exhaust. Oxygen sensors are fragile. Do not drop, as damage may occur. Also, keep the sensor tip clean when reinstalling.
Oxygen sensors are laid out in banks, which refer to cylinders and in sensor numbers referring to before or after the catalytic converter. Bank1 or B1 refers to cylinders 1-3. Bank 2 or B2 refers to cylinders 4-6. Sensor 1 or S1 refers to the sensor before the catalytic converter. Sensor 2 or S2 refers to the sensor after the catalytic converter.
Remember that your car may have been serviced before and parts replaced with different size fasteners used in the replacement. The sizes of the nuts and bolts we give may be different from what you have so be prepared with different size sockets and wrenches.
Protect your eyes, hands and body from fluids, dust and debris while working on your vehicle. If working with the electrical system, disconnect the battery before beginning. Always catch fluids in appropriate containers and properly dispose of any fluid waste. Recycle parts, packaging and fluids when possible. Never work on your vehicle if you feel the task is beyond your ability.

Figure 1 Bank 1 Sensor 1 is indicated by a yellow arrow. Bank 2 Sensor 1 is pointed out with a green arrow. Large Image ' Extra-Large Image
Figure 2 Bank 1 Sensor 2 has a green arrow. Bank 2 Sensor 2 is shown with a yellow arrow. Large Image ' Extra-Large Image
Figure 3 Replacing sensors before catalytic converter: Oxygen sensors are located in the exhaust manifold. Remove the engine covers. See our tech article on engine covers removing. Locate the oxygen sensor electrical connectors at the right side of the engine above the exhaust manifold. Label or mark the wiring harness to aide during reinstallation. I suggest replacing one sensor at a time so you do not mix up connectors. Using an oxygen sensor socket, loosen the oxygen sensor connection to the exhaust manifold. Do not unscrew yet.

Figure 4 Replacing sensors before catalytic converter: Pull the wiring harness out of the mounts (green arrows) along the valve cover. Bank 1 sensor 1 shown, bank 2 sensor 1 is similar. Large Image ' Extra-Large Image
Figure 5 Replacing sensors before catalytic converter: Next, disconnect the electrical connector of the oxygen sensor you are replacing (yellow arrow). First, remove the electrical connector from the mounting bracket (green arrow) by pulling straight up. Once out, disconnect the electrical connector by pressing the release tab and pulling it apart. Note the wiring harness color and the factory sensors color code sensors to help when replacing. Locate the color of the sensor you loosened. Using an oxygen sensor socket, remove the oxygen sensor from the exhaust manifold. Lightly coat the new oxygen sensor thread with anti-seize compound. Install the new oxygen sensor and tighten to 50Nm (37 ft-lb). Then reroute the wiring harness and connect the electrical connector. Repeat if replacing both sensors. Then reassemble the engine covers and clear any engine fault codes using a BMW scan tool. Large Image ' Extra-Large Image
Figure 6 Replacing sensors after catalytic converter: Oxygen sensors are located in the exhaust, behind the catalytic converters. Working below the transmission, remove the transmission splash shield. See our tech article on lower splash shield replacing. Using an oxygen sensor socket, remove the oxygen sensor connection to the exhaust manifold. When reinstalling the sensor, do not allow the harness to remain twisted (green arrow). Be sure it is properly routed and tension free. Large Image ' Extra-Large Image
Figure 7 Replacing sensors after catalytic converter: Next, disconnect the electrical connector of the oxygen sensor you are replacing. First, remove the electrical connector from the mounting bracket (green arrow) by pulling it straight out toward the left side of the engine. Once out, disconnect the electrical connector by pressing the release and pulling it apart (inset). Note the wiring harness color, factory sensors color code sensors to help when replacing. Locate the color of the sensor you loosened. Using an oxygen sensor socket, remove the oxygen sensor from the exhaust manifold. Lightly coat the new oxygen sensor thread with anti-seize compound.

Po136-o137 says change 02 sensor on bank 1 sensor2 I did but engine light is still on 2004 chevy tahoe


code p 0136 refers to heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) 2 bank 1 ---circuit malfunction===causes ---heating inoperative ---wiring---HO2S--- ECM
also refers to oxygen sensor (O2S0 2 bank 1---circuit malfunction===causes --- wiring---O2S ---ecm
it also refers to heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) 2 bank 1 ---no signal===causes ---wiring --- HO2S---
code p 0137 refers to HO2S 2 bank 1 ---low voltage -===causes --exhaust leak---wiring short to ground ---HO2S--- ECM
it also refers to O2S 2 bank 1---low voltage ===causes exhaust leak---wiring short to ground ---O2S ---ECM
to set you up here-- there are 4 oxygen sensors in the system
2 are heated oxygen sensors (HO2S) on in each exhaust manifold or exhaust pipe before the cat converter and
2 oxygen sensors (O2S) -- one in each exhaust pipe after the cat converters
heated oxygen sensors have 4 wires and O2S sensors normally only 2 wires
it is more that possible that you changed the wrong sensors and in the process damaged the delicate wires with the incorrect spanner being used

also refers to heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) 1 bank 2--implausible signal===causes wiring---short to ground--short to positive--HO2S---ECM
code po190 refers to fuel rail pressure (FRP) sensor-circuit malfunction===causes --wiring ---fuel rail pressure sensor---ECM
code p2247 refers to heated oxygen sensor (HO2s) 1 bank 1 reference voltage--open circuit===causes--wiring ---ho2s
also refers to o2s 1 bank 2 reference voltage ---open circuit===causes wiring---o2s
also refers to HO2S 1 bank 2 ---no signal===causes wiring--ho2s---ECM
code p2245 refers to HO2S 1 bank 1 --reference voltage --circuit low===causes--wiring short to ground--ho2s also refers to o2s 1 bank 1 circuit low===causes wiring short to ground--o2s
code p2248 refers to the ho2s I bank --performance problem===causes --wiring--ho2s
code p2249 has the same causes short to ground---ho2s and o2s
code p2518 refers to a/c refrigerant pressure sensor B ---circuit high===causes wiring short to positive--a/c refrigerant pressure sensor.
so after all that replace all the ho2s and o2s sensors using the correct tools so that the wiring is not damaged and check the wiring back to the ECM for burns and rub marks.

I have a 1992 jeep yj 2.5L I bought. The oxygen sensor wires were cut right off when I bought it. I had to replace the oxygen sensor. the wires on the new sensor are black, grey, and two whites. The wires...


When you bought the replacement sensor it should have included instructions on what color wires match. If possible I would return to the store you bought it from and ask for the included directions.

The blacks go together and the greys go together, but I am not sure which other ones go together without knowing the brand and P/N of the replacement sensor.

Match color coded wires


Ask the person who sold you the sensor. They should have the info. Ebay sellers frequently post connection info on their web sites.
