Drive shaft ripped out O2 sensor......
I'm horrible at electrical and need some advice. My drive shaft ripped out my O2 sensor. I no longer have a connector on the wire harness. I know I can buy a universal O2 sensor and rewire it that way but I'd rather have a the connector. My question is if I buy a used wire harness is there another connector further back on the wire harness that I can take off a used harness to connect it or would I have to replace the entire harness?
go to the junk yard, snip off the part you need, they'll charge you maybe 5$ for it, and wire it to your harness, crimp-on butt splice connectors are stupid simple to use if you dont know how to solder. All you have to do is match the wire colors, splice them together, insulate them (electrical tape, heat shrink, ect.), and tuck them where the drive shaft wont find them.
Pretty much what he said. I prefer to solder the wires and use heatshrink tubing, as you get a better connection. O2 sensors run very low voltage, and are prone to problems due to crimp connections. However, crimp connectors beat nothing.
