ORP and MIL Eliminator Prob.

Well.... I decided to replace the cat with an ORP and the MIL Eliminator. No instruction as to which O2 Sensor the MIL should go inline with. I still have the annoying MIL illuminated.

Anyone have the ORP and knows how to get the thing turned off. Its not that big of a deal but it would be nice to have it dark in the car at night :)

Thanks!

The second o2 sensor since all that sensor does is monitor if you cat is doing its job.

If the MIL is on, just unhook the battery for 5 min and it will reset it.

when you say second, which is that....the one closer to the header?

I have it on the one further from the header.

I'll try disconnecting the battery to see if that will remedy the problem.

ok I know which one ur talking about now. I have it on the right one. I'll try disconnecting the batt and see if that works.

There are actually 2 sensors that go into the factory cat but I know what you were getting it.

Thanks for the info.....I'll post again here in 10 mins if the battery disconnect doesnt work.
