    This girl i know took off her dc sports header and the sensor was stuck in it, so she just cut the wires and installed a stock header on her civic coupe dx. she connected the cut o2 wires on to the stock header o2 sensor she started her car and got a check engine light....
    I thinkshe connected the wires back up right. A bad o2 sensor can cause this to right... The two grounds were never marked different from each other she might of hooked them up wrong. could that cause it eather.

    Doesnt the 02 sensor have a plug? Im pretty sure those o2 wires are shielded and wont keep the same ohms they are supposed to have if they are soldered.

    Did she disconnect the battery first before cutting the wires? Did she reset the ecu by disconnecting the wire from the battery?
