i just got my nismo header installed and after one day of having it my check engine light came on. i got worried. i got the nismo intake and exhaust as well and got everything installed by the dealership. well the next morning i took the car to the dealership and they said that the light came on because of my header that didn't have a cat. they said that there was this sensor i can buy that would eliminate this problem. please help i dont have one idea about this. i just get tried of seeing the check engine light on. It makes me feel like there's a problem with my car even though theres not.

I'm assuming you've read the boards here about installing a header and what header to get, etc?

maybe not.

i've done my searching but the thing is that many of them say that the o2 sensor works on the 02-03 spec v and i dont no if it would work for the 04.

i know i could also rellocate the secondary 02 sensor to just behind the cat to keep the SES light from coming on. but i dont no which is the easiest way of doing it. i'll do either one.

just relocate it behind your cat, i did mine last week and its only 35 bucks, so take it to the muffler shop and use the plug that was on your stock header to cover the hole where your o2 sensor is now.

i know the the o2 sensor dons't change anything it just lets the ecu think that you have a cat. but the thing is that i read that the ecu on the 04 are different and that they change. thats why i don't know which 02 sensor to buy because all the ones i've search have said 02-03 and none have said 04. so i don't really want to buy anything that won't work.
