Can anyone help. Just changed all four of my Lambda sensors on my 156 2.0 JTS. The two pre-cat sensors were hardwired into the wiring harness. I was careful to note down the wire colours and their respective terminal positions for one of the pre-cat sensors before soldering on the replacement, fine. Unfortunately though I assumed that the second pre-cat sensor would have the same colour coding for connection to the harness so I snipped away at the six wires without much thought only to find that in fact the wire colours were all different. This left me having to guess the wire connections for each of the six terminals on the sensor connector block. My workshop manual CD does not come with the wire schematic/colour coding for the lambda's. Can anyone help?? A drawing would be much help as I have to sort the sensor before an MOT re-test this week. Failed on emissions becuase of duff sensors. Many Regards Jon.
i am assuming you have the following colours (purely because i have never seen any other colours on a 6 wire wideband lambda)
in the past i have never had to worry about which wire goes where because the same 6 colours were present of the car's harness (lambda side) and i always chop the wires on the lambda side of the harness (between lambda and connector).
since this is not the case for you, i guess you've chopped between the connector and the ecu so the wires are different colours? in that case i would examine the connector so you can see which colour on the lambda harness goes to which colour on the ecu harness.
Yes, i have cut the wires between the ECU and the lambda connector block, my problem being that I have cut right up to the metal spade terminals. In other words I have not left any wire shrouding (coloured bits) on the lambda connector. I can't tell which colour connects to which terminal?
