This happens to me, my air filter sensor got blocked or something like that and an emissions light came on and they tested the emissions and the catalytic converter and everything, but they just reset the sensor

Most events do not automatically reset. It is worth it to get your own ODBII reader that can reset it. They vary in price from a USB adapter and CD for your laptop for $15, to a full professional unit for $250. While an O2 sensor is possible, plugs or plug wires are more common. Even a vacuum leak from a loose hose can do it. You can also reset by removing the battery terminal for a half hour, but then the ecu will have to relearn, and the radio will lose its station settings and may even require an unlocking code.

No, replacing the 02 sensor, even if it is an 02 code, is by no means an indication that you will have solved the problem, unless the people doing the repair test the 02 sensor and find it faulty. Trouble codes only tell you the system or circuit that is having trouble. It does not identify the component that is faulty with any kind of accuracy. Replacing a part based solely on the trouble codes is called 'guessing". And no, the CEL probably won't go out even if you've solved the problem. You need a scanner or at least a basic reset tool. Do NOT disconnect the battery no matter what you read on the Internet. Good luck on your repair.

It needs to be reset at your Porsche Service Department, unless you have the reset tool. @DR Bear: all your previous posts demonstrate your keen sense for the obvious. Yes, owning and operating a Porsche costs more than a Honda Civic or a Nissan Sentra, the types of cars on which you should probably limit your "special brand of knowledge". Are you the same type of Dr. as Dr. Seuss? It sounds that way to me.
