Motor control system failure

getting the failure msg, hooked laptop up to car and it reads fault at lamda seNsor on exhaust. I can reset and its fine for 2 wks and then goes off again, and the car runs a little rough. The garage say that the wires have been stripped on the sensor ie. tampered with. How do I fix this without big bill from dealer?

Re: Motor control system failure

No big bills for that m8, me n the wife just got x2 for 50 quid fitted at Ital Motors chesterfield, that included fitting x2 sensors and a diagnostic and an ecu reset.
