CEL + "Trac Off" blinking

Well yesterday morning coming to work I got a CEL and the Trac Off light was blinking. I spent most my morning reading about others with the same issue. Most problems seem to be the o2 sensors. I saw some guys got fix by cleaning his MAF sensor.

So I cleaned my MAF and reset the ECU and then drove the car yesterday for about 50 miles and I thought that my problem was solved.

Then this morning I get it again. I am going to go get the code pulled later and see what I got. The good thing is that I called my Warranty and they do cover sensors so it should be good if that is my only problem.

The thing that sux is that the shop wont be able to look at my car until Monday.

From the P0037 code its the Bank 1 Sensor 2. I called my warranty they actually cover the sensors. So I took in this morning. I was wondering if maybe I need to get them all changed or just that one. Since they cover them anyway.

So it was your o2? If it's under warranty might as well change em all.

I talk to them about that and they say they can't they can only change the ones that are bad. Some BS if you ask me. I might ask them for the bad one and take the car back every other week so they can replace them all.
