If it doesn't get enough signal from the o2 sensor, then it has 
failed(rare) or there is a wiring problem.  If the heater doesn't 
work, that will cause the sensor to not work or take too long to 
start working, thus Scott's/the Bentley's suggestions.

They last 50-60k miles, rarely outside that; oil and whatnot clogs 
them up, and they become so slow to respond they're useless.
