    Intermittent engine warning light with no codes

    Hi, after getting the aircon condenser replaced on my 2002 VU SS ute the engine warning light comes on intermittently for up to a few minutes. Doesn’t seem to affect the running but just wondering how to fix it? I’m assuming it’s a sensor issue of some sort around the radiator area?

    I have a VE SS and engine light came on with a P2271 bank1 sensor 2, I replaced the O2 sensor on the driver side and cleared the engine code. Engine code came back on 2 days later with the same code. Could it be the catalytic converter?
