If it happened after you got it from the dealer and you spent that enourmous amount of money for replacing two items which alone would cost around around $300, well... let them fix it free of charge. now unless warranty for the labor and parts has expired, then i suggest doing the wiggle test on the electrical wires on your car while engine on.(be very careful with moving parts and loose clothing) wiggle wires that connect to any electrical part in the car see if it shuts off on you. the only other thing i can think of is replacing your fuel filter and checking your fuel pump..

Codes alone don't tell you what to replace. I assume you mean catalytic converter. The converter should last the 10 to 15 years if nothing damages it. You now need to continue on and see why the o2 codes were set. The local shop should be able to take care of it. Just be there and be part of the process, so you know what work to approve. Don't take the vehicle back untill you go for a road test and see the codes are gone ,with the scanner on the veh. Take the scanner on the road trip

After replacing the new O2 sensor, the codes need to be cleared to turn of the check engine light. it sounds to me that they only installed the sensor and because in that moment the check engine light was off they didn't erase the code. Yes I think your car is safe to make those trips, but you should take the car to the workshop so they can erase the code whenever you can.

My 1995 jeep grand Cherokee is stuck in 2nd gear and won't shift and there's no power to the censor

If there is no power going to the sensor, it could be a wiring or computer issue, the computer could be sending an actual problem or the sensor could be faulty and therefore disabled. Try unplugging your battery for about 15 minutes and then trying again, this will clear the computers codes. If that works however, you probably will need to replace the sensor as the issue will most likely return.

How to fix fuel gauge indicator

I wish you could back up & start over

Why was the dealer unable to continue on
or resolve it the first time?

I would have gone back to the dealer,
they have some experience already with
your car

Here in the US we do not to my knowledge,
some 50 years, have what you call auto electric
shops, nor do you need one, as the dealer & any
local shop should find the problem

I also hope you did not take advice that did not
come from actual test results & you were there
at the shop to see & understand fact based info

I do not have an answer-- nor a guess

What is done at the best dealers & local shops,
is to look in their data base for a common vehicle
problem as a way to save time

They also have tech lines they pay for to get ideas

No one,not even a dealer can test or find any issue
until they study the problem & learn how a system works

Then you look at scan tool data,wiring diagram & more

Now your into a few hundred in labor & the shop is just learning
your product,that is what is required with current technology

I never suggest a dealer because of the cost of labor factor

But that is the only place I think you should go for that issue

I can not speak for the original problem or the dealers work

But I think it all went south after that & the proper testing
was never done, to even find a problem or you wouldn't
still have one

Frustrating & expensive,when you don't have decades of
automotive experience,the required electrical back ground,
many shops still don't have & a hundred thousand in tools
& equip, plus the data, just to walk out to a vehicle,but that is
what it takes

A car today is like going to a doctor,only their are not as yet,
many out there up to speed

More than likely you need the transmission rebuilt. Have a local shop drive it first.

I have a 04 nissan altima having engine noise when air condition is on,compressor good so I had the pulley and the belt changed at the dealer, it stopped for a while - it started back again so I took it...

Why would you be at a dealer with a car out of warranty ?

A local repair shop would be less expensive & closer.

They said it was the alternator & you say it is good ?

Has anyone heard of what?

You paid professionals to make your
decisions & now your not sure of their findings

You really should have asked the correct questions
when you were there

Have the tech come out & explain what was tested & how

That doesn't seem to be an issue at a repair shop, but at
a dealer everyone is afraid of them,I wouldn't go there.

When I go to a dealer & only for parts, I walk into the service
bay like I own the place & talk to techs,go for parts & no one
ever stops me or says a thing

Volkswagen jetta 2003

sounds like an electrical short or malfunction. this is a dealer only issue that VW knows best to solve. Check with your dealer to see if any recalls are on your vehicle and take it to them for repairs. Most local shops don't know enough about VW's to work on them accurately. I know this from experience of owning one myself years ago. Trust NO ONE BUT THE DEALER WITH YOUR VW.
