fried wideband?

02-23-2010, 08:19 PM
Yesterday on my way to work I revved up to about 4000 rpm to pass someone and the next time I look over and my wb gauge is stuck on 7.5. So far I've restarted the car and the battery. I've also checked in dsmlink and its stuck at 9.2.

So my thinking is that since both the gauge and dsmlink are getting power and a reading that the sensor must be busted. Any other ideas?

Its possible, or may have just came unhooked. You should pull the sensor out the exhaust and see if it heats up when on. It also should so lean in free air and you can try the lighter test to make it go rich to test if its working.

Here's video on how to test your WB if wanna do it this way.

I tested it earlier today by just turning the accesories on after not driving it for 18 hours so there shouldn't have been any exhaust gas still in there. Another weird thing happened today, when my check engine light came on which it always does cuz the WB heats up faster than the stock, I tried to pull the code on dsmlink and nothing came up. I'm just very confused.

What is your CEL set for in Link? Have another sensor to try?

I'm not sure what you mean. The CEL is almost always on because the WB is always heating up faster than the stocker. I could see if the front O2 is working properly. I will pull the sensor as soon as its not snowing.

Well i somehow managed to bend the crap out of the sensor, threw another one in there everything works like new :)
