Check Engine Light Came On

Before I could try out my home brew OBDII interface, the check engine light came on for my 1997 Honda Accord.  It has 180,000 miles on it.  It is my extra car that I only drive a couple times a week.

I read code PO135, the book says the sensor heater error.   Makes no sense. Went online and found this.

Looks like I need a new oxygen sensor.  I reset the code to see if it comes back.  No sense in moving too fast, if it is really broken it will set the code again!  Might be a fluke.

Currently waiting to see if the code appears again.....
2 days and counting and it hasn't come back.  Maybe it was a false alarm

Nope.  A day later the check engine light is back.  Off to find an oxygen sensor!

Sorry to say i paid my mechanic friend to fix this for me.  Work was crazy and i just didn't have time. $300.  I am ashamed.  ;-)
