I was in the middle of replacing my O2 sensor on my car and the cable is not as long as the original one. This is the one on the passenger side. Why is this?? The one on the driver side fit fine

Because there are 2 different O2 sensors used on your car. One downstream @ 10.6" in length and one Upstream @ 15.4" in length. Take one back and get the right part.
