Lightbulb have SEL for post cat 02's? I have a SOLUTION

Hello everyone,

For those of you who have a Service Engine Light for downstream or post 02 sensors. I have made a emulator for my car, and I thought I should spred the word out, If anyone who is running after market headers, turbo, no cats, or bad 02, I have what I think a reasonably cheap solution to fix the trouble codes for good. guaranteed to work!. should be used for "off-road use only" meaning NOT for vehicles on public roads!

I have made a discrete circuit that simulates the voltage your post-02 sensors. along with the heater. Pm me if your interested.

NOTE: I am NOT responsible for what the end-user does with the unit I would make. The user is fully responsible what actions he/she does with the unit.

yes, E46tknv you are correct. But for others who don't want to make their own, know how, or want a plug N play, I could make them. Thats all. I know someone who wants one, and just got the idea to post up, in-case anyone else wants one.

oh, sorry. I did not intend to kill your business idea. But I do believe o2 sim is plug n play. I mean if its more convenient and cheaper to go to you, then good luck.

yes, some are plug in play for general cars, not our cars. good luck finding ones online to buy, because big brother is cracking down on them.

This is correct the EPA has shut down a few company's over the years.

The "off road use only" statement used to work however that has been proven ineffective.

It's nice to see complete plug and play solution. Most other simulators don't do the heater and you have to leave the o2 sensor in.

This will stop all CEL and will still pass emissions?

For any fault codes relating to the downstream 02 sensors, it will keep the ECU happy. Assuming you have no other pending SEL fault codes, I wouldn't see why one couldn't pass emissions with it. These are solely for "off road use" if you plan on using them to pass emissions, your accountable, and I'm not responsible for what you do with the 02 emulators. I will just be responsible for the emulators to do their job and work as described.

do you mind me asking what your heater circuit consists of? Is it just inline resistance?
Thanks
