It is true that the light will clear itself after a "drive cycle" which is roughly 50-75 miles of combined city and highway driving. HOWEVER, is the oxygen sensors were not the problem, then the light will not clear. If the light was cleared after the repair, and then returned... more than likely the problem is not oxygen sensors. There are many Diagnostic Trouble Codes (aka "P-Codes") that will "say" Oxygen Sensor as a possible cause, but there is an underlying problem (or the p-code was misinterpreted and wrongly diagnosed via the p-code). So, at this point, best bet would be to have those P-Codes scanned from the on-board computer. You can have these p-codes read FREE (except in California) at any local "big chain" part store (ie. AutoZone, PepBoys, Advanced, etc). Once you have these p-codes, we can more accurately determine where the root of the problem is.
