How do you know if you need an oxgen sensor for a Nissan Xterra

The onboard computer maintains an air/fuel mixture at 14.7 to 1, if one of the oxygen sensors is failing it will change the air/fuel mixture for engine combustion. When this happens the onboard computer detects that the air/fuel mixture is out of range and sets the "check engine light" to come on, on the dash. When the computer is scanned for fault codes it will relay back information as to the cause of the problem. If an oxygen sensor is detected as operating out of its range, a specific code number is displayed through testing equipment that reads 'fault codes' and it will display which one is faulting. Hope this helps.

Please review this article: Where's The Fuse?

I cannot give you any specifics about your particular vehicle because vital information like year, model and engine size was not included in the question. What I will say however, Is that if the problem with the battery light started with the replacement of the starter, I would look for problems at the starter - like fusable links that did not get hooked back up or something. If any fuses got blown while replacing the starter, it can only be because the first step in starter replacement was not performed by the person replacing the starter. The first step in replacing a starter in ANY vehicle is always "DISCONNECT BATTERY". This keeps things like fuses, fuse links, alternator diodes, computers, etc., safe from accidental damage during the starter replacement.

Service antilock light on

The ABS system has detected a fault in the system.
The onboard computer will need to be interfaced with a diagnostic scan tool to provide additional information.
I suspect you will find a wheel speed sensor that is no longer operating correctly.
Good luck.

Car does not start after wires shorted out fuses

"Shorted" wires ALWAYS cause blown fuses or burned fusable links. There may also be damage to your onboard computer. I would recommend having the car towed to a reputable shop that can diagnose and/or repair your electrical system.

Low beams suddenly stopped working -1988 Volvo 760 GLE

I doubt that the obc is the source of the problem.
More than likely, it's the relays.
They're not easy to remove, until you remove the ashtray housing, which is 4 fixings in total, if I recall correctly.
Good luck.

Checking the light does not even come on at all

(a) Description
 When troubleshooting OBDII vehicles, the only difference
from the usual troubleshooting procedure
is that you connect to the vehicle the OBDII scan
tool complying with SAE J1978 or TOYOTA handheld
tester, and read off various data output from
the vehicle’s ECM.
 OBDII regulations require that the vehicle’s onboard
computer lights up the Malfunction Indicator
Lamp (MIL) on the instrument panel when the computer
detects a malfunction in the emission control
system/components or in the powertrain control
components which affect vehicle emissions, or a
malfunction in the computer. In addition to the MIL
lighting up when a malfunction is detected, the applicable
Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) prescribed
by SAE J2012 are recorded in the ECM memory
(See page DI-14 ).
If the malfunction does not reoccur in 3 consecutive trips, the
MIL goes off automatically but the DTCs remain recorded in the
ECM memory.

Engine light remains on

its not uncommon for the o2 sensor to go bad w/the 626. The 4 cylinder engine has two o2 sensors. The 1st or primary sensor is located in the exhaust manifold before the catalytic converter (is visible when you open the hood and look straight down, across from the radiator fans) . The secondary o2 sensor is located in the exhaust pipe after the catalytic converter. The V6 has four o2 sensors.
Since the proper operation of the o2 sensors is dependent upon good, clean connections; u cud check that first. Second if you have access to a scantool, you can connect it to the OBD-II data link connector & it will give you the trouble code. If you dont have a scantool you can go to Autozone & they can check the code for you free. the prob can be found out after..

Have a nice day!
