Oxygen sensors have a connect close handy to the unit and that wire can be cut or damaged if the incorrect removal tool is used
look for a connecting hanging close by

Oxygen sensor wiring


well im guessing cause u didnt give type of vehicle, and year.

\The downstream O2 sensor was broken and is missing the wiring harness, I have a universal O2 sensor, but need the color codes to wire it properly. It has a purple, pink, black and white.
the o2 sensor is located right in the front of the engine on the exhaust manifold. it's that big rusty lookin thing. the o2 sensor is the bolt lookin thing coming out of it with the wire attached. unclip the wire and loosen it with an appropriate sized wrench. you may need some liquid wrench for this to penetrate the rust. once it's out ( it will take some muscle) toss it and simply screw the new one in and tighten it with a wrench. clip the wire back up and you're ready to go. Be sure and put some anti-sieze on the threads before you install it. As long as you are not reusing the old sensor you can cut off the wires at the sensor and use a 7/8' deep socket to remove the old one.

Oxygen sensors monitor the exhaust stream, comparing the oxygen content in it to the oxygen content of ambient air. When oxygen content is low, sensor voltage is high. When oxygen content is high, sensor voltage is low. The voltage created by the sensor is sent to the DME (engine control module) to help maintain a proper fuel mixture. The mixture preparation is used to keep the catalytic converters running at peak efficiency. The oxygen sensors used in E60 models covered in this article has four wires. Two of which are for oxygen sensor heating and two for the signal. The heater is used to get the sensor online faster. Previously, exhaust heat was used. One wire supplied a ground to the sensor for the signal, and the other was for the sensor signal.
Oxygen sensors should be replaced every 100,000 miles. In a perfect world that would be it. Wait until a specified mileage and replace the sensor. However, these sensors fail prematurely, set oxygen sensor fault codes and reduce fuel economy. In this article, I will show you how to identify the location of all four oxygen sensors and how to replace them. You will need an oxygen sensor socket to remove the sensors and remember to always work with a cool exhaust. Oxygen sensors are fragile. Do not drop, as damage may occur. Also, keep the sensor tip clean when reinstalling.
Oxygen sensors are laid out in banks, which refer to cylinders and in sensor numbers referring to before or after the catalytic converter. Bank1 or B1 refers to cylinders 1-3. Bank 2 or B2 refers to cylinders 4-6. Sensor 1 or S1 refers to the sensor before the catalytic converter. Sensor 2 or S2 refers to the sensor after the catalytic converter.
Remember that your car may have been serviced before and parts replaced with different size fasteners used in the replacement. The sizes of the nuts and bolts we give may be different from what you have so be prepared with different size sockets and wrenches.
Protect your eyes, hands and body from fluids, dust and debris while working on your vehicle. If working with the electrical system, disconnect the battery before beginning. Always catch fluids in appropriate containers and properly dispose of any fluid waste. Recycle parts, packaging and fluids when possible. Never work on your vehicle if you feel the task is beyond your ability.

Figure 1 Bank 1 Sensor 1 is indicated by a yellow arrow. Bank 2 Sensor 1 is pointed out with a green arrow. Large Image ' Extra-Large Image
Figure 2 Bank 1 Sensor 2 has a green arrow. Bank 2 Sensor 2 is shown with a yellow arrow. Large Image ' Extra-Large Image
Figure 3 Replacing sensors before catalytic converter: Oxygen sensors are located in the exhaust manifold. Remove the engine covers. See our tech article on engine covers removing. Locate the oxygen sensor electrical connectors at the right side of the engine above the exhaust manifold. Label or mark the wiring harness to aide during reinstallation. I suggest replacing one sensor at a time so you do not mix up connectors. Using an oxygen sensor socket, loosen the oxygen sensor connection to the exhaust manifold. Do not unscrew yet. Large Image ' Extra-Large Image
Figure 4 Replacing sensors before catalytic converter: Pull the wiring harness out of the mounts (green arrows) along the valve cover. Bank 1 sensor 1 shown, bank 2 sensor 1 is similar. Large Image ' Extra-Large Image
Figure 5 Replacing sensors before catalytic converter: Next, disconnect the electrical connector of the oxygen sensor you are replacing (yellow arrow). First, remove the electrical connector from the mounting bracket (green arrow) by pulling straight up. Once out, disconnect the electrical connector by pressing the release tab and pulling it apart. Note the wiring harness color and the factory sensors color code sensors to help when replacing. Locate the color of the sensor you loosened. Using an oxygen sensor socket, remove the oxygen sensor from the exhaust manifold. Lightly coat the new oxygen sensor thread with anti-seize compound. Install the new oxygen sensor and tighten to 50Nm (37 ft-lb). Then reroute the wiring harness and connect the electrical connector. Repeat if replacing both sensors. Then reassemble the engine covers and clear any engine fault codes using a BMW scan tool. Large Image ' Extra-Large Image
Figure 6 Replacing sensors after catalytic converter: Oxygen sensors are located in the exhaust, behind the catalytic converters. Working below the transmission, remove the transmission splash shield. See our tech article on lower splash shield replacing. Using an oxygen sensor socket, remove the oxygen sensor connection to the exhaust manifold. When reinstalling the sensor, do not allow the harness to remain twisted (green arrow). Be sure it is properly routed and tension free. Large Image ' Extra-Large Image
Figure 7 Replacing sensors after catalytic converter: Next, disconnect the electrical connector of the oxygen sensor you are replacing. First, remove the electrical connector from the mounting bracket (green arrow) by pulling it straight out toward the left side of the engine. Once out, disconnect the electrical connector by pressing the release and pulling it apart (inset). Note the wiring harness color, factory sensors color code sensors to help when replacing. Locate the color of the sensor you loosened. Using an oxygen sensor socket, remove the oxygen sensor from the exhaust manifold. Lightly coat the new oxygen sensor thread with anti-seize compound. Install the new oxygen sensor and tighten it to 50Nm (37 ft-lb). Large Image ' Extra-Large Image

When you bought the replacement sensor it should have included instructions on what color wires match. If possible I would return to the store you bought it from and ask for the included directions.

The blacks go together and the greys go together, but I am not sure which other ones go together without knowing the brand and P/N of the replacement sensor.

Need to replace oxygen sensor


TO REPLACE OXYGEN YOU NEED A SLOTTED SOCKET AND A TUBE ANTI SEIZE COMPOUND. MOST OF THE TIME NEW OXYGEN SENSOR ALREADY HAS ANTI SEIZE COMPOUND USED ON THE THREADS.TO REPLACE OXYGEN SENSOR FIRST CRANK VECHICLE FOR A FEW MINUTES SO YOU CAN REMOVE OXYGEN SENSOR MORE EASILY. ONCE YOU GET THE EXHAUST LITTLE WARM.YOU DISCONNECT OXYGEN SENSOR CONNECTOR TAKE SLOTTED SOCKET REMOVE OXYGEN SENSOR APPLY ANTI SEIZE ON OXYGEN SENSOR THREADS THE SCREW IT IN PLACE..WEAR LONG SLEEVES COVERALLS, SAFETY GLASSES KEEP RUST PARTICLES GETTING INTO YOUR EYES. AND LEATHER GLOVES KEEP HANDS FROM CUTS AND EXHAUST BURNS. IF YOU REPLACING DOWN STREAM OXYGEN SENSOR YOU HAVE TO RAISE VECHICLE SUPPORT ON JACKSTANDS. FOR UP STREAM OXYGEN SENSOR YOU CAN REPLACE WITHOUT RAISING THE VECHICLE.REASON I SAY CRANK ENGINE TO WARM UP EXHAUST SYSTEM BECAUSE METAL EXPANDS WHEN HOT THAT MAKES REMOVING OXYGEN SENSOR EASIER. IF YOU DONT CRANK VECHICLE THE COLD CAUSES METAL TO SHRINK MAKING HARDER TO REMOVE OXYGEN SENSOR.POSSIBLY DAMAGING SENSOR THREADS WHILE TRYING TO LOOSEN SENSOR FROM EXHAUST MANIFOLD OR PIPE. YOU CAN BUY SLOTTED SOCKET AND ANTI SEIZE COMPOUND AT ANY AUTO PARTS STORES.

Don't put a universal oxygen sensor in your vehicle. You will have nothing but problems, and you will have to put an OEM one in it anyway.

Oxygen sensor 2000 2 liter Tracker


You have an heated Oxygen sensor. 2 of the wires heat up the sensor and keep it at a certain temperature, it is turned on and off by the computer. The other 2 are use to send a very low voltage reading back to the computer to tell the computer if the engine is running rich or lean. I don't have a diagram to tell you which wire does what but you can get a manual and that should give you the information that you need and tell you how to trouble shoot it to tell if the sensor is bad or not, you may want to look for a wire laying on the exhaust, I have found wires burnt and lay on the metal.
