My thoughts as to why it has not come back on - you cleared the code from a part that reads exhaust O2. It may take time to read the exhaust output and evaluate if it's still an issue. IMHO, since you have the parts, go ahead and install at least the O2 sensors, they are easy enough to install. Drive it for a thousand miles or so and see if it re-illuminates. If not, you may have taken care of the issue. If it does, then you have a cat to replace.....:cautious:
Good luck!! ;)
