Hi everyone,

Im currently working on a VW Golf Mk5 1.6 petrol 2004.

I've replaced the Lambda O2 sensor before cat and now I get Open Circuit and Short To Ground in my scans.
Does anyone have any tips on what I can do to find the culprit for the issue?

Before replacement, Short To Ground never appeared in my scans, only after i replaced the O2 with a brand new one.
Also to add, the new O2 sensor has the same amount of pins (5 pin" connector and they're all in the same place.

Thanks in advance, scan below is after clearing all codes once, and going for a quick drive around (scan below is 2nd scan after installing the new sensor)

you have problems on both your lambdas : b1 s1 ( first sensor ) shows an open circuit ( most likely plug issue, wire issue ) and b1 s2 short to ground ( after cat lambda) , check wires , plug , replace sensor

What was the source of the replacement sensor?

Regards to the S1, I tested the loom going to the ECU and they all responded to OHM with a multimeter (all 5 wires). So the wires should be good from the plug.
So maybe the lambda sensor plug is weird.

About the S2, this one is real strange, I've scanned this car every month, and now after we've replaced the lambda S1, S2 has now showed itself as Short to ground.
Do you know if S2 also goes straight to the ECU?
Will check this next.

Thanks for the input!

My buddy who owns the car bought it from a 3rd party site that has all kinds of parts in various "qualities".
Very possible that the sensor is just paperweight.

Yeah..and it might also short circuit your second lambda.. Unplug sensor 1 and see if sensor 2 error still there after rescan/ code clear

Not sure if the thread will bump back up again, but we've done some more trial and error, even got a replacement S2 just to check.
We always get Short to Ground to S2, no matter what we do.
S1 remains Open Circuit.

S2:
We've OHM'ed all the pins on S2 to ECU.
S2 is 4 pinned, and we managed to get a connection from pin 2, 3 and 4.
Pin 1 never responded from any of the ECU pins.
Is pin 1 on S2 connected to S1 directly? Do all lambda wires go straight to ECU?

Pin 1 is a red/blue wire, does anyone know what that wire is, where it goes?

Sounds to me like you got chinesium installed for a sensor, file that part into the round filing cabinet a and buy a bosch unit from a reputable source.

Edit from original wording as I have now checked the WD.
Blue/Red on Pin 1 goes to a joint power source for both O2 heaters from fuse SB45. So "Is pin 1 on S2 connected to S1 directly?", the answer is yes. " Do all lambda wires go straight to ECU?" No!
Test Pin 1 has NBV with engine running, if not check fuse SB45 is ok and being powered from J757 Engine Current Supply Relay. Check resistance between Pin 1 and Pin 2 on both O2 sensors

Very interesting, that is incredibly helpful.
We'll do some investigation on this, thank you so much for your help.
I'm sure I'll update the thread once we've checked this.

I just had another look at my buddy's Golf and I bring good news!

if not check fuse SB45 is ok
First thing i did, had a look in the fuse box, SB45 was missing...

However, this reminded me that I tasked my buddy to check all the fuses back in late December/early January ish.
He pulled a fuse out, OHM'ed it, and wait... where does it go again?
That fuse was then placed in the glovebox until we figured out what it was for.

Jump forward to today, huge creds to @HMC for mentioning the specific fuse for the lambda.
Plugged the 15 fuse back into SB45, did a drive around town, scanned and NOTHING. Thank the lord.

Summary time;
S1 was dead and the replacement worked.
S2 was then revived from the dead after S1 was replaced, which then caused more confusion.
The fuse not being where it was supposed to be caused us to sprial into madness cuz buddy done goofed.

Thank you all for the help, it's much appreciated!
Can finally put this headache inducing crap behind!

Side note about the fuse, we did check the owners manual and various lists online, but we never found anything bound to SB45
