    Default Lambda sensor and emissions light

    My emissions light has been on for the last month or so with the car showing no ill effect whatsoever. In my wisdom, I assumed that it was the lambda sensor and changed this out yesterday but guess what... the light is still on.

    Thinking about it last night, might it be the case that I need to disconnect the battery for 1 hour to let the ECU learn the new values for the sensor or have I just wasted my money by not getting it diagnosed properly?

    I think you may need to look at the cam sensor as well as they are somehow connected & throw each others codes off, can some-one confirm ?
