Heated Oxygen sensor failure....Could have a bad wire or open heater circuit. Not sure about the 2003 whether it has two sensors on bank 2 (front side of engine) The 99 on has one. Try unhooking the battery for ten minutes and reconnect to clear code and see if it comes back...If you do replace stick with Original equipment only sensors (Denso)

Yes the heater is built in and they run in series between two sensors. If one opens you loose the heater for both sensors....It can be checked with an Ohmeter.

Found this by google, good info.

You don't have to worry about damaging the sensor if all you're testing is the heater. How much voltage do you think the heater uses to get to about 1200-1400 Degrees? Just do a continuity test, that's all you need to do on a heater. It's the 2 black wires, pretty simple, don't even have to worry about what you hook to what, it's just continuity. You're not testing the other 2 wires, just the 2 black wires.
