It doesn't have to be the original Toyota sensor but I am not fond of the universal sensors a Desno, NGK or Bosch sensor should work fine, it is usually the heater circuit that fails make sure you have replaced the correct sensor. There is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and get an online repair manual subscription.
