OBD code of P0130, O2 Sensor, Bank 1 Sensor 1 is the active code. The sensor was replaced and the check engine light with the same code came on the next day. The repair shop said to come in and they reset the code three times. A week later the same P0130 code is back. The repair shop said to come in and they will turn the light off again. Seems like troubleshooting to find out what is making the light come on is the 1st step. Printed out the ODB II P0130 code possible causes and showed that to the shop foreman. He said to disconnect the battery overnight, touch terminals, reconnect the battery and drive at 50 mph for 5 miles. Basically, reset the OBD code and see if it comes back on. What would you suggest as the steps to troubleshoot this ongoing problem? I also found reference to Kia TSB-053 to upgrade the ecu DST code for P0130. Can this be done by a repair shop or does it have to be done at a dealer?
