Inspect o2 sensor wiring...A friend with a e46 had o2 sensor codes because mice chewed the wiring.

19 96 is "Precat O2 sensor voltage, cyl #1-#3". It's not the sensor since you changed it. I would inspect the O2 cable for some damage (mice?).

Thanks a lot,
The front one is cyl #1-#3 sensor? or the back one (close to passenger side).
Car runs ok, just a little shaking when warm up in the morning.

There are no o2 cable, it is just the sensor with the cable as a unit.
