Customer Question
I have an 08 Kia...
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.

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

Ask Your Own Kia Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No scan tool
Kia Mechanic: john aka eauto, The Car Guy  replied 2 years ago

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

Ask Your Own Kia Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Both direct fit, from my upstanding universal are not preferred
Kia Mechanic: john aka eauto, The Car Guy  replied 2 years 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?

Ask Your Own Kia Question
Customer reply replied 2 years 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.
Kia Mechanic: john aka eauto, The Car Guy  replied 2 years 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 ?

Ask Your Own Kia Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I believe so, should I try again and ride for about 50 or so and then try to have an emissions done
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Also will it reset itself or how long do I have to ride before it will reset it self
Kia Mechanic: john aka eauto, The Car Guy  replied 2 years 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

Ask Your Own Kia Question
Customer reply replied 2 years 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
Kia Mechanic: john aka eauto, The Car Guy  replied 2 years ago
