Use this test to quickly and accurately check the O2 sensor signal wire for an open or short to ground or verify a shorted O2 sensor. A manufacturer flow chart will have you disconnect the O2, disconnect the engine computer (ECU, ECM, PCM) and then measure the signal wire for opens and shorts with an ohmmeter. Using the "bias voltage" test I am showing in this video, you can perform the same tests in a fraction of the time.
"Bias voltage" on a circuit can be difficult to understand from an engineering standpoint but it is super easy to use when you know it is there.

Tools used:
- labscope
- digital multimeter
- backprobing pin

On ScannerDanner Premium I will bring you right into my classroom at Rosedale Technical College. You will find page for page lectures taken right from my book as well as exclusive classroom type case studies. What is so special about these classroom case studies? I pull live problem vehicles directly into my classroom and we troubleshoot them in real time, using and applying the theory and testing procedures we learn during the classroom lectures. There is no better on-line training of how to troubleshoot automotive electrical and electronics systems anywhere!
