Help?

As late for something and speeding down the interstate when my engine light came on. My tuner read a P0141 and a P0161. It said somethig about my oxy sensor being heated? What exactly does that mean?

Won't mess it up but could be the reason its coding your turner should have a way to reset the sensors or at least trick the ecu to think there fine
