  • Connect multimeter with test leads to terminals 1+3 connector for voltage measurement.
  • Switch ignition on.
Specified value: at least 4.5 V

Heres the spec on what pins you need to check to make sure you are getting power to the sensor we don't see too many issues with this sensor

ok I'll check the voltage, I also noticed when I removed it the sensor had oil around it, also can I check resistance on any of the pins on the sensor?
