Have ignored it for over a year. No real change in fuel consumption either.

The light stays on for about 4-5 start ups and then goes out and stays out for a while (weeks to months), then comes back on. I never have this problem in the warm months, only in winter. It has never had any effect on the way my Jeep runs. I have tried to get it to the dealer as it is under warranty, but the light never stays on long enough to get there. Hopefully I'll be passing the stealership one day and the light will come on.|

But will point you in the right direction if you do not want to pay your mechanic to scan your engine light clear it and send you on your way. Just google your code and research, you will be amazed what info you will find. As for the o2 sensor this is quite common for it to be lazy and not cycle enough or at all in closed loop which could take days, weeks or even months depending on the severity of the sensor. The only problems that I have had with o2 sensors that the engine light comes back right away after clearing the light are usually ones that have an open circuit in the wiring or the heater circuit in the sensor is cooked. So you may want to diagnose a little further, good luck.|

onboard computer or o2 sensor?
I have an 06 wrangler x and was wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem. A couple of months ago I received a check engine light and it was an o2 sensor code. So the sensor was replaced but then the light returned reading the same sensor. The voltage off the computer was tested and it turned out that the voltage for the sensor was fluctuating which was causing the flag. I was told to wait a day till the light came back on and take it back to the dealer because the computer was under an 80000 mile warranty. The light never came back on until about 4 months later. I just changed oil and my coolant was a little low right before so I thought they may have caused something. I topped my coolant, checked my oil, pulled the negative battery terminal and reset the computer. The light never came back on..until now, about another 3 to 4 months. Again I reset the computer the other day and it has yet to come on. My thought is that there is a blown capacitor somewhere on the computer which means they can replace it if it is under warranty. A couple other people told me it could be a faulty ground somewhere. If I take it to the dealer they will charge me $100 in diagnostics to tell me its an o2 sensor and will try to replace it. I will tell them no its not, but we all know the dealer does what they want. Any suggestions or has anyone experienced this problem? thanks
