The wire that was shorted on the same circuit that powers the injectors and coil, the output from the ASD relay.

it appears you need a new connector also. Being the rear sensor wiring, you can wrap it up with tape and stow it. you'll get a CEL but it doesnt affect the driveability. if you need an inspection, you'll need to fix it.

Luckily no inspection in FL. And I definitely will be looking for that connector.

plenty of youtubes on the subject, and Fluke has some good automotive articles to read. once you get the hang of it, it's like riding a bicycle.
