    when tested no error codes showed but i didn't ask them to clear the codes before retrieving the codes so i'll do that next. how are forced resets done? with the same code reader?

On these new advanced vehicles only a forced reset of the computers memory will work, Also ensor replacement might not have been the only issue. I would go to a local pep boys or such and have them read codes, and tell them to clear the codes after retrieving codes.
happy motoring

    yea what most likley happened is the codes cleared he engine computers current code section, however did not clear from history codes which is where they are staying, a code reader should be able to clear freeze frame and history codes.

Try resetting the codes by removing both terminals on the battery for 10 minutes. After the codes should be rest if they do not come back on the sensors are fine.

Check engine light stays on

Go to Autozone and have them scan it for free. They'll give you a slip that has the code and possible issues with the car. Many times it'll be an oxygen sensor or catalytic converter. You can try resetting the code and see if it comes back. They can do that through the scanner at Autozone. It's a nice service they provide. Also, check to see if your engine needs to be tuned up. My 2000 Honda Odyssey had a check engine light around 105k and I had the parts to tune up (plugs). After replacing the plugs and resetting the check engine light the check engine light never came back.

2004 honda accord v6: check light comes and then goes off. Mechanic did hand held computer scan. code reads p2240 and he says oxygen sensor needs cleaning. Please advise, Harry.

that code means there is a fault at the bank 2 oxygen sensor.
as you stand at the frond of the car and look into the engine bay, the sensor is fitted to the middle of the exhaust manifold nearest to you. disconnect the wires on the plug, and i think it is a 22mm spanner or deep socket to remove it.
there are various proprietary oxygen sensor cleaners on the market, but there is no certainty that this will work. there could be an actual fault with the sensor, or it may be too dirty to clean.

if finances permit, i would recommending changing the sensor as a matter of course.

the ecu fault reading can be reset by removing the battery -ve lead for 30 minutes.
make sure you have the radio code before doing this as you will need to reset this as well.

if you only clean the sensor and the fault reading comes back, then you will have to change the sensor and reset the ecu again.

hope this helps.

2003 CVR oxygen sensor

typically no. these are a wear out item. the internal grounds tend to break down, rendering them ineffective, or the wiring harness can become damaged. in your particular vehicle, i have come across many 02 sensor issues that have been solved by replacing. good luck!

Engine light came on - yellow. Code: P0134 02

there is either a problem with the wiring going to the front oxygen sensor, or with the oxygen sensor itself. good luck!

Intermitant check engine light ...code says front bank oxygen sensor...

The oxygen sensor usually screws into the exhaust manifold, so find it, remove it, clean it, replace it and check it again.
If the problem remains, you will probably have to replace it. (about 80$)

Catalytic converter or oxygen sensors?

i would replace the oxygen sensor first as it is the cheapest and easiest

Need info on codes PCM.P0134 and P0420

Both codes are for the oxygen sensors.
P0134 oxygen sensor on bank #1, sensor #1 is bad.
P0420 oxygen sensor on bank #1, the sensor down by the catalytic converter, is also bad.
