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.
