Oxygen Sensor malfunction

10

Asked by Jan 03, 2015 at 12:07 PM about the 2007 Hyundai Sonata Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was in a front end accident with my 2007 Sonata Limited. Was not my fault so other persons insurance covered repairs. When I went to pick it up, no lights on then within 15 minutes my check engine light went on. I immediately called body shop and they said it was the Oxygen Sensor and had nothing to do with the collision. I find that odd that light went on right after I started to drive it. Was told to take to my mechanic for repair.  Question: Could the collision have caused the Oxygen Sensor to malfunction?

Unless the body shop has a very good crystal ball they can't possibly know that it's the oxygen sensor without scanning the computer. Go to your local auto parts store and have them scan the computer. Most stores will do it for free. Post the codes and we can help further. If the check engine light wasn't on prior to the accident I strongly suspect that it IS a result of the collision. Possibly a broken wire or unplugged sensor that they missed when making the repairs.

The body shop said they scanned it saying Oxygen Sensor. I'm awaiting a call from the insurance appraiser. Thanks

Ask for the four digit trouble code. It will begin with the letter "P" then the four digits. HTH. -Jim
