Check Engine Light, Need help NOW!

My CEL came on last night. I got my pipes done BBk offroad x and my mufflers. I got MIL's also. When the guy welded them in he said that he had to make new holes for the o2 sensors to go because they were not long enough, when I got the test done it came up with the o2 sensor error **** so whatever. Do any of you have any ideas for what to do besides take it back to them and make them fix it. Thanks.

P.S. If I get a code reader can I get them to clear the code and hopefully it will have just been the cold weather?

Re: Check Engine Light, Need help NOW!

the best thing to do is just get a custom tune with the rear 02s deleted

Oh. Any idea on a price for that? I got the code cleared this morning and drove all day and the SES did not come back *knock on wood*

Re: Check Engine Light, Need help NOW!

It is because you don't have the cats. It was probably a P0420, am I right?? I had mine come on after I put my O/R Pipes on and I whipped out the superchips tuner and turned it off. It won't turn on again for the same code, I have been running mine for a few weeks without a problem (w/o a tune either).
