Jeep dead on road need some help please

The jeep is a 96 zj i was driving down the highway when my downstream o2 sensor got twisted in the driveshaft im assuming because it ripped the wirees out Above the plug but anyway when it ripped it out it killed the engine i went and bought a new o2 sensor and found a thread on the forum telling me what wires on the new sensor to hook to the harness as they are not color matched so i did that and it still would not start i then disconnected the battery to reset everything and still couldnt get it to start i also checked my asd relay and that seams to be clicking when the key is turned to the on position on the jeep i have a green w/ orange striped, wire black w/ blue, black w/ pink, and black w/ tan new o2 sensor has gray black and 2 white wires any help would be appreciated thank you

When the O2 sensor got ripped out it shorted the wires together and blew a fuse. Check both the PDC under the hood and the fuse panel on the passenger's side of the dash for blown fuses. I don't remember which fuse it is so you'll have to pull each and every one of them.

Disconnect O2 sensors. Make sure the wires within the harness are not shorted together. Be sure PCM fuse is good.

This may get you going if PCM is not fried, but will have a CEL for O2 sensors and default fuel mix. Runs rich, but will get you off side of the road.

Trying to splice in non mopar sensors, or ones with no real color coding can Be dangerous to your ecu.

While the heater element wiring has fuse protection there sensor return to the Ecu doesn't. 12v on a circuit that expects .5-1.5v is very bad.

This kind of thing has been known to fry more than one computer. I hope its just the o2 fuse, the Ecu shares that one for power.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
