you will need to hook up a digital voltmeter to the sensor and check that the voltage is switching when in use.

Do you have a standard exhaust? Some performance exhausts cause egm lights to come on. overfuelling when cold.
More than likely to be lamda sensor though. Cheap and easy to replace.

Hi thank I have got a cat back system at the moment but i have had it on there about 8 months with no problem but also have a k&n induction kit on it which does not look very clean so my friend thinks i should try cleaning all the throttle body and air filter as the air to fuel ratio may be out. Really don't know where to start with this one lol.
But thank you all very much for the replies.
