HOW-TO: Mechanical CEL Fix for a Header
I dont understand.

The wideband comes with its own 02 sensor, i used the #3 bung and took out the stock 02 in the #3 location and just unplugged it. Thats why its throwing the CEL because its reading nothing at that location.

I need to try and trick it with the LC-1 it has an analog out with a selectable voltage output to trick the ECU into thinking its there but i wanted to ask about that fuse first. I knew it wasnt that easy but thought ide ask.

I need to find out what lead the stock 02 uses and tap into it. I believe its +12, -12 (for the heater) and signal + and signal ground to the ECU
It's not important to win, it's important to make the other guy lose.
