This is highly unlikely. Check grounds first.
Are you saying the heater circuit is not powered?
Is Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light on? IF yes, go to Autozone and get DTC Codes free and report back.

    1998 PCED On Board Diagnostics II A

    SECTION 1A: Description and Operation

    Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Monitor

    The HO2S Monitor is an on-board strategy designed to monitor the HO2S sensors for a malfunction or deterioration which can affect emissions. The fuel control or upstream HO2S is checked for proper output voltage and response rate (the time it takes to switch from lean to rich and vice versa). Downstream HO2S used for Catalyst Monitor are also monitored for proper output voltage. The following illustration shows that input is required from the ECT, IAT, MAF and CKP sensors to activate the HO2S Monitor. The Fuel System Monitor and Misfire Detection Monitor must also have completed successfully before the HO2S Monitor is enabled.

    1. The HO2S sensor senses the oxygen content in the exhaust flow and outputs a voltage between zero and 1.0 volt. Lean of stoichiometric (air/fuel ratio of approximately 14.7:1), the HO2S will generate a voltage between zero and 0.45 volt. Rich of stoichiometric, the HO2S will generate a voltage between 0.45 and 1.0 volt. The HO2S Monitor evaluates both the upstream (fuel control) and downstream (Catalyst Monitor) HO2S for proper function.

    1. Once the HO2S Monitor is enabled, the upstream HO2S signal voltage amplitude and response frequency are checked. Excessive voltage is determined by comparing the HO2S signal voltage to a maximum calibratable threshold voltage. A fixed frequency closed loop fuel control routine is executed and the upstream HO2S voltage amplitude and output response frequency are observed. A sample of the upstream HO2S signal is evaluated to determine if the sensor is capable of switching or has a slow response rate. A HO2S heater circuit fault is determined by turning the heater on and off and looking for a corresponding change in the Output State Monitor (OSM) and by measuring the current going through the heater circuit. The HO2S Monitor DTCs can be categorized as follows:

      The DTCs associated with HO2S lack of switching are DTCs P1130, P1131, P1132, P1150, P1151 and P1152.

      The DTCs associated with HO2S slow response rate are DTCs P0133 and P0153.

      The DTCs associated with HO2S signal circuit malfunction are DTCs P0131, P0136, P0151 and P0156.

      The DTCs associated with a HO2S heater circuit malfunction are DTCs P0135, P0141, P0155 and P0161.

      The DTC associated with the downstream HO2S not running in on-demand is DTC P1127.

      The DTCs associated with swapped HO2S connectors are DTCs P1128 and P1129.

    1. The MIL is activated after a fault is detected on two consecutive drive cycles.

Where is the 02 senser bank one senser 3 on a1997 pontiac firebird 3.8 engine

Below is a picture that should help providing due to the age of the vehicle that no changes have been done on the exhaust system. Hope this helps.....

I need to replace my engine in my 95 nissan altima and I want to know what's the latest model engine I can replace it with . Maybe a 2000 nissan altima engine

93-2001 are the same if your talking about the 2.4 liter dual cam motor. Some of the sensers are different as you might need to use the old ones but they'll fit right in. 02 changes to 2.5 and nothing works and the 6 won't fit either. If your manual trans yu need one that's for a manual as the crank is different but the manual engine will go in the automatic, ou'll need to use all the sensers from the old engine or new ones for the old engine as the different model years the computer is set differnt. ( some may work). Check the parts s guy if their the same for both you'll be fine. Don't froget to fix the reason the old motor failed ( bad raditor timing belt coolant senser, exhaust restriction) or your newer motor may fail too.

Is 02 sensersthe same as a 02 heater circuit senser?

No they are two different sensors one takes the temperature of the amount of heat coming from the engine and the other reads how much carban monoxide is coming from the engine

did u change the right o2 sensor there is 2 sensors on bank1 and 2 on bank2.....upstream and down stream.....i had the same prob i changed the o2 senser to the other side to check and make sure it was the o2 took 4 o2 sensors before i got 1 that finally worked nd yes i was buying them brand change sides with it nd see if the code changes sides....and did u reset it with the code machine when u put the new 1 in?

Missing in the rain

o2 sensor mixes the difference of fuel and air. i would think u probably need a new coil pack or distributor cap.
