What exactly is the code, and have you tried resetting it?

It might be defective... Things happen, especially since it'* a Bosch... I'd try getting a replacement.

Look, we have established that Bosch is bad. You might be getting this code simply because of it being a bosch, thats most definitely far fetched, but it appears that Bosch'* approach to any type of quality is as well, far fetched.

Get a Delco sensor, that should take care of your problem.

But have you unhooked the negative battery cable overnight?

From our experience, you'll be going back and back and back again until you lose the Bosch.

In the early days here, we weren't sure. I had a Bosch last 45 days. But even new, it never fully restored my lost fuel mileage. With the AC Delco, I gained it all back (3-4mpg more than the Bosch restored for me when new).

Considering our experiences and advice, and factoring in the price of fuel, I suggest you ditch it now. Don't try another Bosch.
