99 OBS new downstream 02 sensor...

To the question finally: Would the California o2 sensor hurt my car or cause any wierdness? My sensor connector is orange like the one pictured on Rockauto. Hope this is comprehendable.

I saw the cheap prices of the off brand sensors on rockauto and am tempted to try one, but just to save $5 or $10 it might not be worth the hassle to have it fail in a year (if it even lasts more than a day) and have to replace it again.
One other thing to check is the shape of the connector. There are slots on the sides and/or top that keep the wrong sensor from being plugged into the harness.
You might also just check the wiring going to the sensor for damage before replacing it. A heater malfunction isn't an uncommon problem but there could be other reasons for the code, such as damaged wiring.
