man i personally hate problems like that, OK first all cars have a production date and that's on the driver side door jam [ two samples 6-97 is 98 7-98 is a 99 see this are my two daewoos lanos]now yours must of been built late 2001 but on the serial it must said 2002 so you go by that , OK second have some body do a real diagnostic the car they will tell you wish sensor is the one if they can`t tell you then they don`t know how to use the scanner they should be able to see if it is a circuit problem or lazy o2 or not switching at all or bank one then you buy an original or a bosh o2 sensor wish you will find in e-bay i just bought one for 31.50 including shipping now that's a deal 4 wire heated the dealer toll me that it was 180.00 dollars they are crazy OK now the wire problem sounds like a dead short it means that a hot wire its hitting metal or something melted like a switch do what some people do disconnect things like your head lites then try putting a fuse and so on this is if you don`t have the money good luck.

The original sensor is what we cannot find. The one with the 4-wire plug. Only can find the universal and mechanic does not want to use that type. Still trying to find original type. According to the computers at the auto supply stores, the sensor "should" be another type that has a 2-wire plug. Did you see my note on the engine - one place it is stated that it is a 2.0 and another place it says it is a 2.2. That's crazy. Anyway, checking web-sites looking for a sensor that is designed for this engine that has the 4-wire plug. About the lights - DID find a fuse that keeps blowing out - am thinking it it is a problem in the switch (the stick on the left side of the steering wheel). Seems both times my fuse "blew", I was using the switch, pushing and pulling it foward and back - switching from low beam to high beam due to oncoming vehicles and watching out for deer. Both times, the switch was used multiple times in close succesion. Have to keep shopping and looking - this is a whole new process for me. Have not shopped on web-sites in ernest for anything this important - ever. Mechanic is searching, also. Does that headlight switch (stick thing) come apart? I think not. And I know you have to have a special tool to remove steering wheel to get it out, right? Thanks for your help and encouragement. There is two major O2 sensors - the cheaper one is for the front - the expensive one is for the back.

The 2.2 engine found in the Leganza is the same basic block as thed 2.0 found in the Nubira.Parts are mostly interchangeable I believe.Checking on ebay I found a front sensor-with plug ins for about $30 including freight,The rear was about $40 including freight.The front was a 2 wire -the rear a 4 wire.The rear was listed in the parts section under Leganza oxygen sensor-the front under Nubira parts oxygen sensor.

Thanks - I will keep looking. My front sensor is listed as a 2-wire one, but it is actually a 4 wire one. Weird. Was told the back one was way more expensive than the front one, but I do not know how many wires that one has. Was trying to find the less expensive one first to see if that fixed the problem. Thanks again - will check e-bay.

NOBODY does Daewoo warranty work - no matter what paper work you have that says otherwise. Daweoo no longer pays ANYBODY in the US for doing warranty work. Any dealer that performs work is not reimbursed. AND, if you call GM's Main Headquarters, they will tell you "GM has absolutely 'no relationship' with Daewoo". Period. No GM dealer has anything to do with a Daewoo. Even some that "used to" work on them in my area, now, no longer take them at all for any service. Sad for some of us stuck with these cars. My car still runs, heats, air conditioner works (knock on wood!), and wipers work. Hopefully, I can finally find the O2 sensor that I am having trouble finding and get that "check engine" light out, soon!

GM never was the source of dealer warranty reimbursement.A separate entity was set up to handle warranty work at the time GM purchased DAEWOO.GM funded this entity as part of the purchase agreement.I know that there was a SUZUKI dealership in Spartanburg SC who honored these warranties.I'm not sure want the time limit was.I would check with JOE GIBSON Suzuki in Spartanburg SC.They may be able to help people find dealers in their area.
The warranty covers the power train for 60 months or 60,000 miles from DATE OF PURCHASE.My son had some work done about 16 months ago.His is a 2001 purchased Jan 2002.If the car is out of warranty any good shop can work on them-parts are easily obtained.Also,the engine is the same as the ISUZU 2.2 4 cyl.
I hope this is helpful.The engine in the SUZUKI Forenza also is a Holden motor with a shorter stroke then the Leganza --2.0 rather then 2.2.Most of the parts like camshaft sensor,egr valve.gaskets etc should be the same,

Great Info! - WOW, can't wait to get busy looking again! Where did you find out about the Suzuki engine being same as Nubira. And what is that about "Holden" motor. Is that a maker?
New Problem - Headlight fuse blowing regularly under hood. 15 amp. Lights go completely out. Did find that I can "pull" the switch stick towards me, hold it - and I have "brights". Something must be shorting out in the on/off switch stick thingie. So I probably have to shop for one of those, also. DID find out that if I DO NOT switch the "high-beams" on and off, the fuse is not "blowing". So, for about two weeks, have been only using low beam to drive at night. No soooooooooo bad, but would like to get that fixed.
Thanks for the great help! I will stay in touch. This has been great - first time I have tried this type of site for help.

Hi Friends - wanted to chat with someone interested in Falcons. I still own the first car that I ever bought which is my 1963 Ford Falcon Convertible. It CAN run, but is not currently running. Gas tank has been removed - needs repaired - relined - or replaced. That is one question I wonder about - should I get a plastic type that is fitted for my car, or should I try to "send out" the original and have it relined and repaired. Or, sometimes people do that themselves - but usually I heard it was something smaller and easier to handle, like a motorcycle gas tank. Any comments? I bought the car in 1970. It is garaged but not tended to much in past 5 years. Not planning on selling it. I like it. I can't part with it. It is kinda ugly, but kinda cute, also.
