    I got a new 02 sensor, didn't touch the end of it or anything like that, yet when I take my car to get it ref'd it still throws a code 1. Even though when I turn the car on it wont be on, it came on when they were towards the end of their test. I think the ref said something about at the high idle test or some shit. Any help appreciated.


    Was looking at my car. There is no CEL but it throws a code 1.

    did you clear the codes after you replaced the 02 sensor?

    Even if you replace the defective parts, the ECU may still be storing the trouble code. Try disconnecting the battery and letting the car sit for a few minutes, then reconnect the battery, turn it on, and let it idle for a while. That should take care of it...
