the hottie

that would my first guess.You can also try to beat the converter to loosen the stuff that might helpor stabbing holes in it .But the way this newer vehicles are probaly would be better to spend the money for a new converter.good luck!!!!!!!

There should be a single purple wire coming from up top that plugs into the sensor.

You likely wiped the converter, so check your work and install a new converter.

FordMan: Your method of checking is illegal and doesn't solve the problem . It would also make it slow as piss and noisy as hell. The converter would have to pitched.

It usually comes out of the engine harness, at least it does on most GM's I have seen.

Do you have a wiring diagram for it? Check through my signature file below to get to Autolibrary to see if they have one there.

If not, cut and paste it if the URL doesn't work as a hyperlink.
