Oxygen Sensor – Low Voltage?

December 22nd, 2010 · No Comments

I ran numerous Diagnostics tests with the OBD-II readers and replaced many oxygen sensors (Bosch and Delphi) with my 2000 Chevrolet Silverado. But my check engine light has been on for the past month with the new oxygen sensor. The last test, I replaced the Bosch oxygen sensor with a Delphi. I made a quick run to Tuffy and asked to run a test for my truck. They did. After that, it read O2 Sensor – Bank 2 Sensor 2 – Low Voltage. I know it’s downstream (passenger side, after the cats). The mechanic told me it has something to do with the wiring harness that connects to the computer, or a wire has been tugged/pinched during installation (made sure I didn’t touch anything other than the oxygen sensor).

Aftermarket stereo installation in a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado?

December 21st, 2010 · No Comments

I have a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Crew Cab and I bought a Kenwood KDC-MP145 stereo to install in it. I’ve already installed new speakers, but I don’t know how to install the head unit at all. I have seen these GM harnesses that keep the factory chimes and what not, but I know that I don’t have to have that. I know how to take the factory head unit out of the dash, but I don’t know how to connect the new head unit. On other cars it seems like it’s plug and play or something. Can someone PLEASE show me an article, video, etc. on how to install a head unit in my truck without buying some $100 GM harness?
