Well I'd have to say it sounds like you got a bad sensor, whatever the reason. If the guy is a regular seller on ebay, you should be able to get a refund. I wouldn't take a second on, though.

The old adage still applies. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

It's been done with other models.
IIRC, the doors can be swapped around.

I unplugged the battery and reconnected it...still check engine light. Is there anyway to reset the ECU?

Thanks!
Colin
Calbration resistor might be different from the OEM one. Can you measure them and see if they are the same?

I should have known because the wire colors didn't match the OEM sensor (there ain't no blue wire on the L1H1). The counterfeit might have been an NTK L2H2 knock off.

With all the issues with Chinese goods out there today I wouldn't be surprised if what I had was a Chinese knock off. There are some car companies in China making copies of the Smart ForTwo and the '08 xB. The new xB counterfeit looks like it could share parts with the real one!
Some legit NTK L1H1 come in bosch packaging.
The Bosch 13246 is the Honda sensor and has the honda part # stamped on it.

The ntk sensor I bought from autozone.com in 2005 was in a Bosch 13246 package but it was definitely not the sensor it was supposed to be (blue wire). I contacted Robert Bosch directly and they confirmed there were counterfeit NTK sensors out in the supply stream.

I assume autozone is now carrying the genuine ones as their sensors are now priced at almost $400.
