Usually cleaning will do no good

Usually there are 2 02 sensors, one right on top and the other behind the cat.

More information on the vehicle would help

You need to know why the MIL is on, so start out by reading the codes (or having them read). It might be totally unrelated to the O2 sensor.

X 2 with what cobalt said. You need to know what the code number is, and EXACTLY word for word what the description is. AND a lot of times those "Generic" scanners wont give a correct or concise description. The wording is key, as it is a description of the codes meaning. You have to interpret that correctly to be able to get your direction for a diagnosis.
Post the code, and what it says.
