Default Check engine light

Hi i just bought a 2000 volvo s80 t6 se last week and loving it. The car drives so quite and so smooth driving it for a week. But today suddenly a check engine light come on and stays on but it drives the same, still so smooth and quite. Could it be possible hat this,is just some faulty warning?

sometimes these cars dealerships clear the codes without fixing problems, and they reappear after a hundred miles...

Went to a volvo mechanic, they said its just a sensor in the exhaust pipe- to fix $1000!!!!!! There are 4 sensors in exhaust and only one is not working. I bought my own obdII tool now.

More than likely it's a bad o2 sensor. Depending on the fault, it could take several hundred miles to reappear. You can scan the system and see if the code is in there.

I was referring to using an OBD-II code reading scanner.

Check engine light has come back on again. Used my obd2 scanner tool and it gave me P1132 o2 sensor heating circ.. Bank 1+2-sensor1short to B+. ... I have no idea what this means. Can someone help me, is this a minor thing or i must get this fixed?..... For now, i just erase the code so my check engine light will go.
