    Hi, Yes thats the one I have. Well the check engine light went on and diagnostics said it was the o2 sensor. I had someone test the wires on the o2 sensor and he said one wire was reading only.12 volts and it was suppose to be higher. Said it had to be a relay. I have loss of engine power too so maybe cat. converter. and not o2 sensor.

Not sure what model Eclipse you have so I looked up the GS with a 2.0l. The O2 sensors don't show a relay. They do have a heater element built in them to help them warm up faster. What kind of concern are you having?

    Part of that is correct. The heater element will operate at 12v,but the part that senses o2 operates from 0-1v. With a scanner attached you should see it bounce back and forth like 0.3v to 0.8v and back down as it reads lean/rich. This should be tested above idle like at 1500 rpm. As far as a plugged catalyst,you can attach a vacuum guage to the intake manifold and raise the rpms. If the guage drops toward zero and stays there,you may have a plugged cat. At that point you can pull the o2 sensor out and/or back the exhaust off at flange in front of the cat and retest it. If the power loss is gone you have found the problem. Can you get the code that was pulled? I maybe able to narrow it down a little better. Good Luck. Let me know if you need more info.or if this doesn't make sense.

Why is it missing fuse pins in relay section of fuse box?

It's normal to see pins missing. They deleted the relay for O2's just ran them on a fuse. And if you don't have a rear blower, you wouldn't need that relay. They also started putting the blower relays in the resistor.

Where is the fuse for the front two heated o2 sensors on a 2003 rav4? i'm pulling a code for both. i don't think both front 02 sensor will go at the same time and from what i have read it will be either...

No fuse to o2 sensor's and if it was the ECM , engine would not start at all, the only way to find out if it is the o2 sensor. is to look at data from the sensor's with a scaner, or bench test the sensor's, also look for a vacuum leak, that will also set a code for o2's.But your right both can't be bad, not at same time, look for leak.

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

2001 dodge durango 4.7liter 4x4 i replaced front o2 sensor,rear 02 sensor,ground wire to exhaust and the engine light keeping coding saying (o2 sensor heater curcuit malfunction bank 1 sensor 2). car runs...

bank 1 sensor 2 is the left downstream sensor (1/2) is located in the exhaust downpipe just after the mini-catalytic convertor, and before the main catalytic convertor. Now the meaning of this is that your not getting any 12+/12- heating on sensor, which means voltage is supplied to heat sensor up. You have a O2 sensor heater relay, but not getting problem with 2/2 sensor tells me you need to check/inspect the wiring for 1/2 sensor, open wiring for 1/2 sensor and inspect
