after going through a car wash my SES light came on. I checked the code it was for the oxygen sensor heater. I reset the code and then tried to start car. It took many tries to start the car. That never happened before. The code was still present so for some reason it did not erase.
I have driven about 30 miles since this happened and code is still there. It has been rainy and damp . How long does it usually take for sensor to dry out or do you thinkit was damaged.
othere things to note. I did not shut car off when i went through the wash.
2006 honda CRV 4 cyl
Any advise would be helpful

If the sensor actually shorted out (or the heater wire broke) you will need to replace it. :Darn: That is a pitfall of the under-body sprays that some car washes use.



BTW, the Service Soon message is NOT a CEL (check engine light). The service reminder on an '06 comes up at a mileage and can be reset via the procedure in the owners manual.



If, indeed, it is a CEL, I'd first try unplugging the sensor connector three times (perhaps give it a spray of electrical contact cleaner).

It's worth a shot... :HighFive:

Under the car. :Darn: Towards the engine near the catalytic converter.

This vid shows the two O2 sensors in the very first frame!
