ecu is under the carpet on the passenger side kick panel. As for the o2 sensor, I cant help. I would say, check the haynes manual.

I dont see why it should be very much different, but the O2 sensor should be right before the cat. Follow the wires up to a wheather-pac connecter. Peel the plastic back a little and you want to splice into the WHITE wire. You probably have 4 wires, but the white is the right one.

I dont have a 5g, but thats how my 6g is. Most H/A are the same anyway.

yes. my car o2 sensor wire is white also. Just checked manual. If I were to locate the ecu, will the white o2 wire be connected to the ecu?

the ECU is where the passengers lie their feet
not the floorboard /
the kick panel is right underneath the glove box
you'll need a screw driver and a wrench
you have to pull back the carpetting like 2.5 feet back
there are like 10-12 bolts
good luck

to short the ECU to get or clear the codes, there is a plastic clip right underneath the glove box ... mine was orange ( not green like most manuals say )

- have the car off -
- short it out with a paperclip and turn on the ignition after
- count the amount of check engine flashes


as for the O2 sensor, you have to jack up the front end of the car to get to it ... most of the time there is a little built up of crap in the connector - just clean it and you should be fine ...

if not and you need to replace the O2 sensor, it's a very heavy cost

My question is where is the o2 sensor located inside the car. The white wire must be connected to something in the cabin. I already know where the o2 sensor is outside.

Couldnt tell you for sure. If you have a Helms or a Haynes manual, you can follow the schematic back to see where it goes, but I just did mine in the engine bay.

how to do you remove the passenger side crapet near the ecu? I got all the fastener out but the carpet still won't come out because it seems like it is connected to the driver side around the console.
