Oxygen sensor signal wire


Tinman

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know which of the 3 wires on the oxygen sensor (2 grey, 1 black) carries the signal I can tap into for an Air/fuel ratio gauge?

I have an annoying hesitation I'm trying to figure out, and just got the gauge in.

Also, the gauge taps into a narrow band sensor, which I think the joyner has. Am I correct, or do I have to get another O2 sensor?

Thanks to any who reply!!!

Do you have the computer wiring schematic? It can be downloaded from http://www.utvboard.com/topic/392-parts-pieces-and-information-for-our-troopers-joyners/ It's at the very end of the post.

According to the schematic, the one heavier wire is the 14 volt feed wire and the other two go to the computer. You could unplug the connector and measure the supply side voltage on each pin or measure the resistance to ground of the sensor side, the one with a resistance will be power, the two with out resistance to ground will be you sensor.

Joyners are narrow band. A narrow band sensor doesn't tell you much. It only senses rather it is too rich or too lean but not by how much. I don't think I would waste my time on the narrow band.

So does that mean that it doesn't matter which of the two I connect to?

The A/F guage does say to connect to narrow band, but I can understand what you mean. If it doesn't work well, I can always pull the last O2 sensor and install a wide band one. There is a thread on replacement O2 sensors somewhere here...

All connected to the second 02 sensor.

Funny thing happens - the first minute or two I'm reading lean, as in 16/1 pretty much through the whole rev band, then my readings go all screwy - from 11/1 to 20/1. Sometimes I get confirmation by how the T2 runs, but sometimes not. Any ideas?

You need to be on the first sensor, not the second. Don't know if this will help what your getting but you will get incorrect values from the second sensor. The second sensor is after the catalytic converter and the catalytic converter alters the values of the fuel and oxygen. You need to be looking at the gases comming directly from the engine, so start there.

      Hey guys! Newbie here. I'm an old man who's better with plowing a mule (4-legged kind) than these newfangled beasts. I, and a friend of mine, just bought new Coleman sxs and are having to finish the assembly. I've been reading on this site and I'm falling on the mercy of you experts. The only way I'm an expert is that an "ex" is a has been, and a spurt is a drip under pressure. LOL First off, the 2 buggies have no ignition switches. They seem to mount on the dash, not the opening in the steering wheel shaft cover, so we ordered new ones that are supposed to fit. They are 8 inches long, and have a 4-wired white plugin which is slightly rectangled when looking at the end of the plug. The trouble is there's nothing to plug into. There is a three-wire grey plug close enough to reach the four-wire plug, but of course, they are not compatible. 
      Secondly, the blinker, light, ect. unit on steering wheel just spins around when touched. I see no way in heaven or earth to secure it. I've looked at a diagram on the Powersports site, but can't detect how it mounted. Fellows I'd be so grateful for any help with this. Me and my mule will even plow your garden for free, for your help. LOL

      Hello,
      Before I invest $10k+ into a brand new UTV for the farm, I want to get my feet wet with a fixer upper and learn the mechanical side of things. I acquired a 2022 Hisun Axis 500 (Lowes-specific model) from an auction for $500. It has only 200 hours and 120 miles on the engine. It looks like the previous owner used it for ranch work and didn't drive it on trails, deep water/mud, or anything too crazy.
      While it runs and moves, it has some problems. It struggles to accelerate up any incline in high and low range and sometimes stalls when I let off of the throttle or change gears. When I apply throttle in neutral, it sounds like it is struggling for fuel/air and pops. When I decelerate, there is a grinding sound coming from the clutch, which I've read to be related to the one way bearing and is semi-common. The last thing I've observed is sometimes the speedometer display sometimes will show a much higher value for a few seconds after barely touching the throttle. Based on the documentation, if a problem is detected from the sensors, the instrument panel display should have an error code rendered on the screen in place of the time, but this isn't happening. Here is a video showing some of these issues (engine is exposed with console removed):

      Here is another video of the clutches in action:
       
      I've done some research, but information on this specific unit and sister units is limited. There does seem to be transmission and clutch issues reported. I still need to check into the head gaskets. I don't have the equipment to test compression right now, but I do plan on ordering what is needed soon. I do have an order in place for some cables to read the diagnostics from the computer. There is a shop two hours away from me that works on Hisun products, but I am hoping the problem can be identified and is something within my ability to handle. Below is what I've already investigated.  I am leaning towards the primary clutch needing replacement right now.
      After getting it home and unloaded, I did the following maintenance/checks to it prior to operating it further:
      Changed the engine/clutch oil (and filter) and gear oils using manufacture recommended viscosity Changed the air filter and checked for cracks in the air intake flow. Verified good suction. Cleaned the throttle body Changed the spark plug and verified the gap was within spec (0.6-0.7mm) Changed the coil and coil wire Changed the fuel lines, fuel injector, and verified the fuel pump was outputting the correct initial prime pressure for ignition and continuous pressure after ignition. Also completely emptied the fuel tank and made sure octane 91+ fuel is being used per manufacturer specs. Ran seafoam through system too. Cleaned the spark arrester and verified no cracks or gaps in the exhaust flow Changed out the O2 sensor Checked all wired connections to ensure they were secured and no breaks were visible Checked the belt for tightness and for any signs of wear and tear Verified 4WD and the differential lock function as expected - still hesitates and struggles uphill Verified the fan gears in the shifter are not corroded and working as expected ECU was reset after replacing sensors and fuel-related parts  
       
      Thanks!

      At the end of last year my Coleman UT 500 will not go into reverse. I can hold it over toward the reverse to move it nut it won't lock into reverse. Anyone have this problem? Winter is just about over and going to have to get this resolved. Thank You!
