Check Engine o2 sensor ZZP Catback

I have the Full ZZP exhaust. Mid length Header and Catted downpipe with 2.5 inch Catback. I knew that when i got this installed , it would set a code for the rear o2 sensor and i would have a check engine light. I got some suggestions on how to get the light to go off, and i purchased an o2 spacer to fix the problem . i installed it and the check engine light still wont go off. so the spacer idea failed. I need to know what else i can do to get the light to go off. its just annoying and my inspection is also coming up in a month. i would like to get the light to go out by then. Will the dealership turn off the sensor for me with a TEch OBD2 device or is that against the law for them to do so? if so how do i fix it?

Thank you

The check engine light may not go off by itself. You may have to have the code cleared after the spacer is installed. You can take your car to most autoparts store and they can read and clear the code.

Or you can disconnect your car battery for an hour and hook it back up.

Thank you for your suggestion , but yes I did disconnect the battery twice and the light would come back on shortly after. I am looking for another solution to fix this problem besides a spacer.

Like GMR said goto parts store and have them check yer code and erase it see if it stays gone. Make sure that is the code your tossing too.

Why don't we try the obvious and replace the rear O2 sensor?



Q: What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
A: First, you screw. Then, you bolt.

I just replaced my rear O2 sensor. Had been getting codes for months, P0140. That code is etched in my brain. Sometimes it would stay off for a few hundred miles, other times less than 25 miles. No lights since it was changed last Friday. I'll check for codes on the car when it warms up above single digits...

Thank you all for your suggestions. I cleared the code with a scanner and the light came back on a few miles down the road. I guess my next attempt will be to try and replace the o2 sensor.
