Looks like it's for the power locks. My Yaris came with power locks and the master switch is right next to the hand brake and shifter.

I just did my oxygen sensor and although it seemed impossible to reach from the top at first, it was MUCH easier getting at it from the front rather than crawling under the car. The only reason I got under the Yaris was to spray the PB blaster on it since I couldn't see what I was spraying when hovering above it.

Using a 3/8" drive ratchet and a oxygen sensor socket, I wasn't able to get leverage either above the car or below it so I had to attach a "cheater pipe" on the handle. It's basically a metal pipe from an old bedframe that I place over the ratchet and was able to get superb leverage without kicking or hammering the ratchet. I could probably use this cheater pipe without the PB blaster prep and still do okay.

Anywho, does anyone know if it's absolutely necessary to reset the ecu by unplugging the battery or will the car relearn the readings from the new oxygen sensor? I will continue without resetting the ECU to see when my MPG will finally improve.
