Report: Oxygen Sensor Code Due to Failed Electrical Connections at Sensor
Kia Spectra Problem
Average Mileage: 62,767 mi (32,000 mi - 89,070 mi)
The Check Engine Light may erroneously illuminate, signifying a fault with the front oxygen sensor when no fault exists. Replacing the electrical connections at the oxygen sensor with a repair kit available from Kia will commonly fix this problem.

I paid to have it turned off and it came back on the next day.

I bought this used at 55,000. Check engine light goes on and off. Sometimes days with no light. Other days it stays on maybe for a day.
Dealer replaced electric connections twice prior to warranty experation. Light comes back on every 5 to 7500 miles. It's on at 74000 and I may have to change the oxygen sensor.

Intermittant eng. check light for about a month. Dealer diagnosed it as the O2 connector and replaced it ($235!!!)
