    Default Unable to find replacement for seemingly unique DPFE sensor

    Hello! I've been coming across this forum, focus hacks, and a bunch of other sites all pointing to the DPFE as a trouble item. I have a feeling thats what I got. THe problem is I can't find a replacement for my seemingly unique DPFE sensor. The only other reference I can even find to the part number is someone else stuck in Europe with a US focus.

    First, the car.

    2001 Ford Focus LX Sedan
    Not sure on the engine type SOHC or DOHC, but probably the cheaper of the two
    VIN = 1FAFP33P61W233482

    From the pictures, you can see that my DPFE looks different from the ones that every parts site on the internet says I should have.
    The part number on the one I have is: 98bb-9j460-ab



    The part number I picked up is f77e-9j460-ab, but the wiring harness is different. Below is the one I have:



    Below is what the new one I picked up looks like:


    Is it possible that I jsut need to replace the wiring harness and hook up the new one? (and where to get one?) or am I stuck trying to find the mystery part?

    Thanks!

    If your car is an LX, you have the SOHC 2.0L.
    The picture on the bottom is another version, but that is not the latest one.

    Chances are you may need an additional harness. Have you checked with your local dealer to see what is the correct part? You need to have your VIN to see what part(s) come up.

    I'll check tomorrow to see what number that crosses to. I'll see if I can get one for you.

    You need a 3S4Z-9P449-AA kit from your dealer. It includes the updated DPFE sensor and a jumper harness. I don't believe the jumper harness is available by itself.

    Apparently I stand corrected regarding the availability of the harness alone. Thanks Wingless!

    LostCarcosa, it appears that Winglessfocus and I have both confirmed that Ford does offer a jumper harness, but we may not be 100% certain of the part number you actually need and would rather not take the chance of misleading you.

    Did you buy your F77E-9J460-AB from a local dealer or from an internet site?

    In this case you may be best off contacting your local dealer since properly identifying the service part numbers for emissions components can get tricky at times. Another benefit is if your dealer looks up the part number (as opposed to you walking in and asking for a specific part number) and it's not what you need, they should be able to rectify the situation immediately and work with you to get what you really do need.

    Buying from internet sites can usually save a few bucks, but there are times (like this?) when it may be cheaper just to work through your local dealer.

    I forgot about this post, since I sold the car not long after posting, but here's what happened:

    The Ford dealer told me I had to buy the whole conversion kit instead of just the pigtail, so I ended up with a second DPFE (first one off ebay). I cut off the old pigtail, soldered the new one on, replaced the DPFE and it was up and running.

    Thanks guys!

    I found this post using Google. I, too, ordered a new DPFE Sensor from the Internet only to find the socket is different. After reading this post, I found the new plug and also ordered it from the Internet. I can confirm the part number is still 2U2Z-14S411-AA (alternate number listed is WPT-188).

    The new plug came in the mail today. All three wires are solid white. The instructions indicate "refer to applicable model year wiring diagram for circuit information." Yikes!

    Before I order a wiring diagram booklet, can anyone tell me if the terminals on the new plug are in the same position as the original, i.e., top matches top, middle matches middle, and bottom matches bottom? I'm not going to make any assumptions.

    Also, the existing wiring is quite short and leads to an awkward space to do soldering and shrink wrapping. I'm thinking about cannibalizing the old DPFE Sensor and hacksawing it into a socket that I can solder onto the new plug wires. This would yield an adapter cable to fit the old plug and the new DPFE Sensor socket. Any thoughts on this?


    This is starting to remind me of the Marx Brother's "Tootsie Fruitsie Ice Cream" skit from A Day at the Races (1937). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LBIsDBC848

    **** answered my own question, the little square one is '01, '02 specific. The 3s4z-9p449-aa is the more modern of the two.****
    thanks anyway.




    I have the same issue as the OP, Zetec with oddball DPFE sensor. My ford dealer lists only this device for the Zetec:

    http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_EGR-Pressure-Feedback-Sensor-BWD_20470049-P_2268_R|GRPSENSAMS____

    (for visual representation)

    now as i would have to mod. the electrics for the 3s4z-9p449-aa anyway, which my dealer wants 230$CND for; could i get the pig tail and mounting device from a wreck and convert to the more common and cheaper unit?

    Is there a difference electrically between the two? obviously ford has approved the upgrade using the kit, i was just curious about modernizing rather than replacing an odd ball unit with another oddball unit.

    Thanks.

    I changed my DPFE and it was the "oddball" one like someone called it I also changed the hrness which was also all white wires. must have connected the wires wrong because I'm still getting the same code P0401. if anyone knows if the pins are in the same order please advise.thanks

    Bump...

    can replacement pig tail be swapped with maintaining wiring positions?
    old top = new top, old middle = new middle, etc...

    or is the pin-out of the replacement DPFE different than that of the original?
