Default fixed my wideband

Wasted 60 bucks on a new sensor then discovered......


So anyway, after replacing the sensor and not seeing any change in result, I began tracing every wire to find a short. I couldn't find one. Then I decide to remove the AEM and send it in for warranty. As I'm pulling the unit out, I notice one of the wires that goes to my harness is loose. As in, just sitting there in the engine bay, not hooked up to anything. So I dig around behind the head and find a matching plug and connect them... and everything suddenly works!

That sucks, but victory on finding the cause. I blew a fuse recently and it took me an hour finding the blown fuse, since the shop installed it.

Don't you hate it when you spend money just to find out that you are indeed the broken part??
