Default Wideband Question

Ok here it is, I was at work this week and had to scann a car with running problem. I had a 24x rpm signal loss I figoured that part out and fixed the car, but what I noticed is that with my scanner (snap-on mt2500) in the data stream I had a af ratio. like 14.0 and ---- just like a wideband. So now im thinking if this car had it then we might be able to take the o2s out of theses car and use them as a very cheap wideband. It was a hyundi santa fe

Does anyone have a wiring diagram for a wideband?

well, there are a whole slew of OEM widebands. civic VX 96-00 HX, a few new accords, new beetles. just to name a few. the new turbo beetles factory wideband can be had for around $40, and has been used in DIY widebands a few times that i know of. if you want a factory wideband i still have my VX L1H1 i will sell for $50.

Something I thought about last night...

Knowing that wideband O2 sensors have a linear 0-5v output, and knowing the A/F ratio vs voltage, could we just use a digital multimeter and aim for a voltage instead of aiming for an A/F ratio? This would simply require a WB O2 sensor and a multimeter, no need for WB controllers and such... (A/F Ratio being 2*Voltage +10)

This could be a nice alternative for home tuning? (don't know if this has already been discussed)

good idea, but if we get a old multi meter(analog) and just change the backing on to match the wideband numbers

if you could datalog the voltage then you would be basically bypassing the wideband controller, all it does is convert the 12v signal to a ratio on a scale. if you datalog the voltage yourself and covert to ratio via the linear scale its the same thing.
