My 2004 KIA SPECTRA GS HATCHBACK recently had it's battery replaced. Once the battery was replaced the check engine light went off. A day later the check engine light was back on. I was told it was the O2 sensor on the passenger side but it was unclear if there is a blockage. My check engine light did not turn on until the battery in the car ran out of juice.
How long have you had this problem? A few weeks.
