Aroberts, your solution is OK for testing purposes, but I would not keep it like that for a long time. Maybe the resistor can come lose after a while due to the vibrations of the engine. Replacing your resistor by an O2 eliminator is a cheap solid solution. It's just an idea.
Heck Barbancourt. Do you have super powers or something? Yesterday I filled up with petrol and the FI light came on. Got home and the resistor was just a tiny bit loose. I put it back together with a new cable-tie and it is fine today.Hi. I put a cable tie around the plug and the resistor to hold it in place after I took the photo. Maybe you are right. I'll let you know if it comes loose.
I've looked around on the net for an eliminator but the sites either seem a bit dodgy or don't deliver to NZ. Anyone recommend a site to buy from?
Another option I'm thinking of is to reconnect the O2 Sensor with the heater, but just cut the green wire so it doesn't send back a signal.
