Its in your engine. Locate your sparkplugs that are closest to the firewall, then look for the exhuast tube manifold, and you will see a little "spark plug" looking thing sticking out. There should be cables attached to it, and its a pain in the butt to get out.

Looks like this...

the previous O2 sensor code may still be active in bringing up that light, clear the code and see if it comes back?

Have AutoZone rescan it and then post the codes here. One of us can point you in the right direction.
