Recently my O2 sensor wires fell onto my exhaust manifold. The wires melted, shorted, and caused a few trouble codes. I fixed them and now I am getting a trouble code saying it is running lean on that sensor. I am also getting another code saying that "Not all rediness tests completed". Could the shorted wires damaged the computer?
Do you

The codes I am getting are P1131 (Lack of HO2S11 Switches- Sensor indicates lean) on a regular scan and P1000 (OBD Systems Readiness Test Not Complete) on a continuous scan. I have a Blue Point (Snap-On) YA3120 CanOBD 2 & 1 diagnostic scan tool. I am no longer getting the P1132 (rich bank 1, sensor 1). Flashing emblems on scanner said CAT and EVA (I'm assuming for evap system) were problems with the readiness tests. Now all I am getting is the EVA. The only thing remaining constant is the lean code. I am suspecting a bad injector, but the readiness test part is throwing me for a loop. Any suggestions would help.
Thanks

Possible causes are :
FUEL SYSTEM
Excessive fuel pressure, check for leaking or bad injector, leaking fuel pressure regulator, low fuel pressure, engine low on fuel, vapor recovery system fault.

INTAKE SYSTEM
leaking air after NAF sensor, intake gasket, vacuum leaks, PCV valve
EGR system
check EGR valve if stuck or leaking check for exhaust leak before or near the O2 sensor, check oil, check cam timing

do u have any symptom :lack of power, spark knock, buck, jerk, hesitation on acceleration
if so suspect MAF sensor
