O2 Connector Problem

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I have an interesting problem on my 1997 Boxster. Problem is with the O2 sensor, passenger side, aft of the converter --- the connector this sensor plugs into is dried, rotten, broken, and no longer holds the O2 plug firmly enough. It keeps falling out. Just to be clear, the connector that is bad is the one coming from the trunk, round plug type that seats in the floor of the trunk and accepts the plug from the O2 sensor. Sunset and Pelican think I would have to order an entire engine harness at over a $1,000. Doesn't make sense to me that a simple plug requires a $1,000 change of an entire wire harness. Is there a way to order just that connector? Should I try to make my own harness? Any words of help are appreciated. thanks

You are short on options here; Porsche does not sell the connectors or sections of the harness, only the whole thing. You can try contacting Porsche wrecking yards to see if they can help, or simply make up your own connectors with stuff from somebody that makes weather proof connectors like Weather Pack

JFP....FYI. I stopped at Advance Auto on the way home. Bought a cheap flat four connector that one would use on a say a boat trailer. Spliced it to the O2 sensor. Took it to a local shop, put it on a computer, and it is working just fine. I wrapped in shrink wrap to ensure weather seal, but for $10, am very happy. thanks again,
