    Ensure the wires/wiring harness to the oxygen sensor are not burned or melted due to contact with the exhaust manifold.
    The two black wires to the oxygen sensor are the ones that control the heater circuit of the O2 Sensor. Ignition key on one of those two wires should have 12 volts the other gets grounded through the fuel injection computer.
