I have an 08 Kia Sorento, I have change out (2) O2 sensors

Customer Question

I have an 08 Kia Sorento, I have change out (2) O2 sensors but my check engine light is still on. I took it back to Autozone, and they gave me Codes: P0113, P2098, and P0157. I need this light out in order to pass emissions.

poi113 is a mass air flow code.. the 157 is a cose for the rear 02 s which did you replace?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I changed both rear sensors, 1 last year, 1 yesterday
Expert:  john aka eauto replied 1 year ago.

u sure on the p2098 not showing that as a valid code

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
2098 was not a code, wrong car. But p0113, and p0157 were codes on there the read out for the kia
Expert:  john aka eauto replied 1 year ago.

do you have a scan tool that can monitor live data?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No scan tool
Expert:  john aka eauto replied 1 year ago.

is the other rear 02 under warranty? are they direct fit or universal?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Both direct fit, from my upstanding universal are not preferred
Expert:  john aka eauto replied 1 year ago.

universals are junk that's why I asked... In order to confirm if the sensors are working a scan tool showing live data is required,, A scan tool capable of monitoring sensors can be expensive.. did you reset the light after changing?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, how do you reset the light on this vehicle? However I did disconnect the battery in order to clean it, and the light went out momentarily. After about 70 miles it came back on.
Expert:  john aka eauto replied 1 year ago.

with a scan tool or code reader like the auto pat store used.. so did you unhook the battery after replacing the 02 sensor ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I believe so, should I try again and ride for about 50 or so and then try to have an emissions done
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Also will it reset itself or how long do I have to ride before it will reset it self
Expert:  john aka eauto replied 1 year ago.

generally 100 miles after reset.. I would buy a code reader that can check readiness status...they can be purchased for under 100 dollars

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can't purchase a scan tool until tomorrow, at that time I should have a 100 miles on it. If this does not work, will I be able to reach back out to you to resolve this issue
Expert:  john aka eauto replied 1 year ago.
