The actual code # should tell you which 02 sensor. Bank 1, bank 2, sensor 1, sensor 2. WhaT is the actual code? If everything runs fine and no mil on, why worry about it? I didn't see your engine litre size listed?

If your saying the code refered to the heater circuit, that is the circuit you need to check. Replacing the 02 sensor may not help? Bank two is the passenger side bank, first 02 sensor.
