In order to get the light out you will have to replace the rear O2 sensor.

SOURCE: Could someone tell me what the error codes

The error codes you have are for the O2 Sensors. There is one before and after the catalytic converter. It is usually the first O2 sensor that is the problem because the second sensor is used just to verify the converter is working. The O2 sensors are usually $60 to $130 dollars depending on the type your vehicle uses. they are located on the downpipe on the exhaust system and the other is locted after the catalytic converter on the exhaust system. The O2 sensor not working will cause you gas mileage to be reduced because the car's computer will run the fuel mixter rich.

BTW - if you have less than 100,000miles you might be able to have your cat replaced under warranty by the dealer. In Canada it's 160,000km.

SOURCE: 2003 VW Golf - O2 Sensor?

Honestly it is not very expensive to replace, but it is not extremely important. What it does is measure the oxygen/fuel level coming out of the engine. This tells the computer that the engine is either using the right air/fuel mixture or allows the computer to change the mixture slightly to allow the car to run properly. You could pull the sensor out and clean the terminal as it usually has alot of carbon build up due to its location, but this is normally a temporary fix. I hope this helps you with your problem.

P0036 and p141 showed up on my obd angine light


Code 141 is for a problem with the heater circuit for the O2 sensor bank one sensor two.
Code 36 is for the same issue.
Bank one sensor two is the sensor after the cat converter. The circuit would need to be tested.
The O2 sensors have a heater built in to make them work faster during engine warmup.

Is the PCM the issue?


The P0140 code is caused by or is affected by the P0141 code. Fix the P0141 code first before worring about the P0140.
It is good you had the connections cleaned as oil contamination will cause a problem with the O2 system.
The "automotive electrician" should have performed a continuity test from the O2 sensor heater fuse to the PCM connector were the heater is grounded. The resistance value should be 35ohms. If the value is too high, the PCM will set the P0141 code. I would suspect you have an open circuit in either high or low side of the O2 sensor heater circuit.
Good luck.
