The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

I found the problem YEAH. It was the fuse that is in the side of the fuse box under the hood, Its where the battery wire from the alternator connects thru a fuse to go to the battery, Its one hundred and something volt fuse. It took care of the problem instantly.... Thank you all for your replies...

I do not know the part numbers but you have 4 sensors. 2 pre and 2 post catalytic converter. The pre sensors are the most sensitive and are generally the ones to fail. the rear sensors usually have a heater circuit problem. If your just replacing them for routine service interval I would just do the fronts. They connect to the engine wire harness in the front of the transmission pan. You may need an o2 sensor socket to remove the fronts. They are just a 22mm. in size.
