Correct me if im wrong, but basically the front O2 gets an exhaust reading before the cat, then compares it with a reading from the rear O2 to determine cat efficiency. And it does a couple more things as well. And like piker said, it has most likely just died and needs to be replaced, my comment on hard hits was just a suggestion as to something that could have caused it to die. Since you have no engine mods, it was a possibility, or something got screwed up in the wires, like a short or something. And I believe if the car is running rich that can foul up the O2 sensors.
