wire harness swap on O2 sensor

1629 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Hardway
Is it possible to swap the wire harness on an oxygen sensor? I live in Costa Rica and parts are hard to come by on my 06 Chevy Suburban. I ordered an OEM sensor according to the VIN and it does not fit. The plug on the sensor is a trapezoid and the receptacle o the truck is a square. Is it possible to use the old wiring harness with the new sensor?

it's 2 wires as far as I remember, going to the sensor itself. problem possible is that O2 sensor is based on resistance. Every time you add a splice or solder, you changing system resistance. So, it's a crap shot. I'd say, definitely solder, and solder well. Least resistance obstruction.
