Default o2 sensor question (denso)

I bought a new o2 sensor (denso) from Autozone. It said O.E. type, so I figured that it would be a 3 wire, factory compatible plug. Autozone had to order it, and when it came in today, it looked just like a universal o2. It has only 1 wire, and a funky looking plug (for 1 wire). I am assuming I need to just take it back. It doesnt have a splice kit or anything. What is yalls thoughts/opinions? (btw-I never took it out of the package, I just carefully opened the box.)

Thanks,
Andrew

That is the wrong sensor... Take it back and get them to order the correct 3 wire heated sensor..

they know their computers and thats all, just like RockAuto... since RockAuto is saying the wrong one also, thats just another reason to get the AC Delco one

I dont know that AZ will easily return special order items. Make sure you tell them is not the right one, and that it is their mistake...

It was a mixed year for the L27. Jseabert'* 93 SSE had a 3-wire. His emissions label says "HO2S". My single-wire L67 says 'O2S' for 93.

thanks for the help guys. Hopefully AZ will take it back easily, and then I can save up a few more dollars and get an ac delco. I guess this is what I get for trying to be cheap.
