P1189 Fuel Control (Bank 2 Sensor 1) code

I keep getting this code about once a week and the car automatically goes into limp mode but after re-starting the car the light goes away...

I recently changed the two pre-cat o2 sensors....what could be causing this fault? I have no Idea please help me...

also some times I get a P1188 fuel control (bank 1 sensor 1) but the 1189 comes more often......any advices?

since you just installed new 02's i'd be willing to bet that one of them is bad or not the correct one. that code im assuming is lamda control bank 1 before cat. i'd start by removing it and re-installing the old one, see if the problem goes away. bank 1 is passenger side.

put the old ones back in and see if you still get the codes, i'll bet they go away.
