*update* I was looking at my O2 sensors this morning to see if I could find any bare wires or chaffing etc. and didn't see anything obvious, until I got to the "downstream" sensor ( the one that is plugged into the back of the catalytic converter) and noticed there was a splice just before the plug. This splice was done a long time ago, probably by someone proir to my owning the Jeep. So my thought was to inspect the splice ( check the obvious stuff first ) and after I had unplugged the sensor and was inspecting the area where the splice is located, I saw a small exposed copper wire. So I started to clean the crud of the wire so I could wrap some electrical tape around the bare wire and the insulation just started crumbling, LUCKILY it was only between the splice and the connector (about a half inch or so ) and not the whole wire harness. After wrapping some tape on the bare wire, I plugged the connector back into the sensor - replaced the 20A fuse and crossed my fingers !!! Turned the key on and heard the fuel pump ramp up and stop after about three seconds or so ( good sign , because with the fuse blown the pump runs continuosly ) and turned the key all the way - She Started
So with the Jeep running I quickly crawled back under it and started wiggling the wire harness to see if it would short out again, good news is it did not. I know my "fix" is only temporary so my Question is this " does anyone make replacement plug connectors so I can resplice this " ???
