i had the same thing, i had it tested at auto zone and they said it was the obd2. i was told the o2 sensor was not a big deal so i reset the check engine light by holding down the trip meter button while starting her up and it has not been on since.

An O2 sensor code is a tricky one. It could mean SEVERAL different things, and I know how bad it sucks to hear this, but your best bet is to take it in and have a diagnostic ran on it at either a dealer or a good mechanic shop with a computer they can hook up to it. I had an "O2" code come up a while back on another car I used to have, and literally spent weeks and hundreds of dollars trying to fix it, and never did. Finally out of desperation took it in, paid the $90, and they found the problem and fixed it in like 30 minutes. Something I would have never even thought of was causing it (can't remember off the top of my head). After that I stopped wating time and money on check engine lights. One comes on in my car, I take it to have it ran for free at and auto parts store just to make sure it's not a loose gas cap or something, just to get an idea of what I'm looking at, then go and make an appointment to have to hooked up to a diagnostic computer to track down the problem. Good luck, and hope this helps save you some time and money.

The easiest way is to get the kit that plugs into the taillight harness to adapt your plug. If one isn't easily available then you can use scotch locks to splice into your trucks harness. Use a test light to make sure you locate the right wires in your trucks harness and go by the wire diagram on the instructions from the plug to hook it up.
I hope this helps!
