Default Measuring O2 sensor voltage...

I have a 1-wire O2 sensor im trying to check. I know that volt range is between .1-.9 volts. What I need to know is how do I hook up a volt-meter to check it???

voltage should be between 0.4xx - 0.6xx at idle
a little below 0.500 is perfect.

um, in closed loop?!?!?

i think not,

the voltage should swing from rich to lean at idle once the ECU is in closed loop.

with the AVERAGE voltage being around 0.5v

Directly from the manual. "Warm engine to operating tempature. Unplug O2 sensor. Hook + lead to O2 and - lead to body ground. Hold engine at 4000 RPM for 30 seconds. Voltage should be .6v. Allow engine to idle. Voltage should have dropped below .4v when returning to idle."

are you using a digital volt meter?

have you waited 10 minutes for the O2 sensor to heat up to operating temprature?
