When a code points to something like an O2 sensor, the problem might not be the sensor itself, but it could be a damaged wire or a loose or broken connection leading to the sensor. That's where a mechanic's diagnostics come in. The returned CEL should have led you to recheck the code; I'd assume it's still the O2 sensor.

Thanks for response. Yes still same code. I sprayed electronic cleaner on connector contacts, will double check sensor voltage with voltmeter, in couple days when weather permits.
