New "Smart" O2 Sims
Just bought the new Smart O2 Sims from o2simulator.com
I had originally purchased one of the regular dual output sims from them and was not pleased with my results. The original sim was only producing the correct voltage on B1S2 and not B2S2. After a few emails he told me he would refund my purchase and give me a discount on their new "smart" sims.
As you guys know it is hard to trust someone when their product didn't work and they want to try and upsell you on a new product. They told me they would refund me my entire purchase with them if their new product didn't work.
So...after extensive data logging and needing to get that annoying CEL light off the track car I decided I would try it out. Here is the setup. No pictures...if you really need pictures you shouldn't be cutting and soldering (or lack there of) your wiring harness in the first place.
These smart sensors DO have wideband connectivity if you are interested.
BMW uses Zirconia type O2 sensors if you have OEM.
Here is the test subject:
2000 BMW 328Ci M52TU with Dinan Tune
Using connector X60002 leading into the DME the wiring setup used is as follows:
Splice Blue wire to B1S1 SIG - Pin 14 - Yellow (GE)
Splice Green wire to B1S1 GND - Pin 20 - Black (SW)
Connect Brown wire to B1S2 SIG - Pin 16 - Yellow (GE) Cut this wire
Splice Grey wire to B1S2 GND - Pin 22 - Black (SW)
Splice Blue wire to B2S1 SIG - Pin 15 - Yellow (GE)
Splice Green wire to B2S1 GND - Pin 21 - Black (SW)
Connect Brown wire to B2S2 SIG - Pin 18 - Yellow (GE) Cut this wire
Splice Grey wire to B2S2 GND - Pin 24 - Black (SW)
The signal wires coming from the DME for the post-cat sensors needs to be connected to the Brown wire so it can output its signal from the sims.
Power was connected to IGN on 12v
Ground was connected to chassis ground
Data logging verifies sims are properly switching voltages and all intrusive tests that the DME performs when cutting fuel are now compensated by the "smart" sims.
The readiness monitors show that the sims are working properly and they have completed their checks.
Make sure you correctly cover any exposed wires and stash your new sims in a cool dry place.
