P1131, it would mean that O2 Sensor before the cat is bad. Easiest way to find out how many you have would be to get under the truck and look. I assume its the first O2 sensor in the exhaust because I do not know exactly how many cats you have I cannot say its between such and such.

You should have two. One before the cat and one after. Get to the one before the cat from under the hood, get to the one after it by going under the truck.

I got 3 damn 02 sensors on my truck. but any way, disconnect the ground wire to your truck for 10min, than hook it back up, that will reset everything, and of course, if the light comes back on it's not fixed.
