george seems to work fine taking a 100 mile test drive now good work was had to tell wht and wht 1 apart
Kia Mechanic: George H., ASE Certified Technician  replied 3 years ago
The whites on the sensor are just both ends of a resistor so it does not matter which goes to the white of the vehicle harness and which to the pink.
Please let me know if you have further questions
Thank you

No warranty available for this. You will need to get it diagnosed to see what is going on. Monitoring with a scantool will show if it is the sensor operation causing the code if you are getting a code for the O2 sensor. Let me know how I can help Thank you
