Hey all. New to EOC. I really like this thing (2006), but I'm having O2 sensor issues. Had it at the dealer and they said it was the pre cat sensor so I replaced it with an aftermarket Bosch. I've been getting better gas mileage since by 5 mph, but the engine light is still on. Checked the code today with a friend and now it's throwing a code of P1157. Tried to clear it, but the light came back on immediately. I'm wondering how to procede. Will a genuine Honda part fix it and if so where's the cheapest place to get it? What will happen if I do nothing? Don't really care if the light is on, but don't want to do any damage either or cost myself more in the long run.

The Bosch sensor does not work good in the E and Honda Tech had talked about this. Try to get the original type sensor.
