Codes usually mean the heater element in the primary (ahead of catalytic converter) O2 sensor is faulty. It could also mean a wiring or connector fault, but this is less likely than a damaged heater element. Fix is replacement of the sensor. These are readily available from a variety of sources; ebay, internet, auto parts stores, Honda parts.

Place your car specs and identify what engine in your signature line for earlier responses.

both of those codes at the same time is VERY odd. instead, check for a blown fuse 6 in the drivers underdash fuse box.

this fuse blows because of a short to ground in the alternator black/yellow wire. check for the short to ground in the wiring between the valve cover and the alternator. you should see the wiring loom rubbing against a bracket.

if it's ok, replace the primary oxygen sensor.

a shop should charge no more than .5 labor since you are bringing it in and requesting no diag. otherwise they may charge 1.3-1.5(diag and replacement). it's very simple, one pic is worth a 1000 words:



a new honda sensor should run you about $112, shop around. i'd suggest sticking with honda parts.

I have the exact same problem. I appreciate the help. When i talked to AutoZone they said there are two types of oxygen sensors: 1) standard 2) made especially for California cars. I live in Utah but I bought my car from someone in CA and under the hood there's a message that says "this car passes federal and california emissions standards" or something like that. Does that mean i HAVE to buy the more expensive CA oxygen sensor? Or can i use the other sensor because i don't need to pass CA emissions, i need to pass UT emissions?

Generally, if you have trouble codes P1166 and P1167, that refers to an Air/Fuel Ratio sensor. Most likely you will need the more expensive Air/Fuel Ratio sensor to keep the Check Engine Light off and trouble codes from coming back. Air/Fuel Ratio sensor are generally wide-band O2 sensor. The regular narrow-band O2 sensor would give different trouble code(s).

Btw: We don't even know what year, model car, engine (ULEV or non-ULEV?) you have.

If you have the ULEV engine, there's a LOT more different than just the O2 sensor. You'll have to get the (more expensive ) sensor. Since you're not in California, you have to make sure the parts store actually lists a different sensor. (I'm assuming you have a 1998-2002 4-cyl???)
