    Yes that's a fairly common set up my girlfriends Renault has two sensors similarly mounted as did my old Chrysler Voyager.

    If I were you I would unplug the sensor under the engine as it's probably the easiest to get to? and check the error codes again to either eliminate or confirm it as the faulty sensor. It's not going to damage anything as the engine only need run for a few minutes though the car may run a bit rough

    Hi,
    I also have a problem with my o2 sensor, but my code is po130 sensor circuit range/performance bank 1 sensor 1.
    I think i will have to replace the sensor, I see you mention ebay, do you remeber the name of the seller that you used?
    I have a vectra S reg, Vectra B engine.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    theairflowmetercompany is who I used last time but that was for a Renault Scenic which has a 4 wire sensor and that seems to be the only type he sells? I imagine yours will be a 3 wire sensor? in which case Ebay item 400105480223 is what you will need. The sensors which require you to fit your old plug are cheaper.

    I think the problem is when the engine switches to LPG, the on board systems are reading a non existant fault!

    Gas runs a whole boat load cleaner than petrol, so the oxy sensor gets confused once the system switches to LPG.

    The MIL comes on, but because the LPG has it's own ECU, it shouldn't affect the running of the car as such and the MIL should extinguish once you are running on petrol again.

    If this is the case I wouldn't waste money on a new sensor as it'll just go the same way.
