You posted this a week ago and received 2 answers. Why didn't you go back to that thread instead of starting another one?

A quick answer here; your "thing" that you put in the exhaust to stop any kind of fault because of the missing CAT has failed. Put the CAT back on, clear the code and you'll be fine. If you caught without the CAT it's a federal and state law with fines up to $10,000.00.

The 02 is measuring gases after the CAT but you took the CAT out and replaced it. Not sure what that "thing" is that supposed to stop the code. Can you go back to whoever sold you the "thing" and say that's it's not working and find out what they have for an answer. Either way, you might have to put out for a new sensor depending on why it sent a message to the computer so it would set a code. It could be all plugged/fouled up and useless.

Here's some info on the 02 sensor:
