so i called the dealer, they have two CPS's, one for the NBS and another for the OBS. one iabout $25 and the other i think $33. the NBS i know had a recall and the replacement quality is still questionable. my question is can i use the NBS CPS? is there really a difference?

i know there are black, and gray and blue CPS but there I have not seen any difinitive information that points to which one is truely better. so can i use NBS CPS?

I got a recall on my OBS for the CPS, you might ask the dealer about that. The one that is in my truck now is for a NBS that I had to buy off a guy with a NBS one time when I was left stranded so I would say it works.

good ot know, i was told that the OBS was too old for any recall. So lets assume that the PO replaced my CPS already, how well has the recall been working for you guys?

I don't have an OBS anymore, but my friends dad had his replaced and is doing fine. Even if it has been replaced before, it might not be the updated version. They changed the colors of the CPS to tell the difference but I can't remember what color the new one is.

Just go to the dealer and they will run your VIN for any recall notices and if the CPS is there you get a new CPS. When I had mine done I just asked them of I could have the new censor, they gave it to me and I put it in my glove box. I bet they would give it to you so they wont have to install it. Definitely something to check into.:thumb:
