With the ignition switch in the off position, check each curcuit by pulling out each fuse 1 by 1. Use a digital multi meter to check for current drain by pulling the fuse and touching the contacts with an amp meter, if it shows current that is the curcuit you need to pay attention too

How do I bypass o2 sensor on my 2000 Saturn sl2 3.0 litre


You can't. The computer knows it is there and also knows if you try to wire around it. The electrical output from the O2 sensor is used to control the other engine controls. If you bypass the O2 sensor, the motor turns on the check engine light and goes into limp mode which makes the car run pretty bad
