i have not driven the 16v in 3 months, today i drove it 100 miles to clean it up ,and at some stop lights when i came to idle the engine was jumping from 500 to 1500 rpm, give it gas it stoped
then came back but didnt stall, and at idle for longer then 5 min the o2 light comes on,then goes off when driving????

The steering wheel must come off to replace the switch!

On USA versions of this car only a bad O2 sensor OR intermittant power supply to the CIS computer will cause this light to come on & then back off.
