Snap On ethos is how I am monitoring these voltages. The scanner says its in open loop fault, not open loop waiting for conditions for closed.
I will check the o2 fuse voltage with my Dvom and report back. I really have no idea about how old these sensors are but I doubt they are original stock.
The car cranks fine and first idles smooth for about a 3 seconds then goes to shit.
In order for a MIL to be illuminated it needs to trip the DTC twice for a type B code or once for a type A. Most codes are type B. your type a flashes the engine light.
In order for it to trip at least once it needs to complete its drive cycle test. Certain conditions are met during a test for Sensor and tested. I'm not certain if O2 sensors are a continuous monitor system or a non continuous. Either way its never lighting because its not meeting its conditions.
Also my tps reading is 18% at idle. I think I have a wiring issue.
