Once the sensors have been located, the mechanic would then check the wiring and connectors for any obvious damage. Then the mechanic would test all of these sensors using the manufacturer's suggested procedures. If any codes related to the catalyst system or oxygen sensors were also stored, the mechanic would check for a clogged catalytic converter. If the cause of the issue is still not found after all of these tests are performed, the mechanic will then test the powertrain control module using the manufacturer's suggested procedure and relay all information over to the customer.
