O2 Sensor

1990 Jeep YJ 2.5L, EFI
I've been fighting engine knock and have finally changed out the O2 sensor.
The knock quieted a lot but the engine was pretty rough running.
Question, do I need to reset anything with the O2 change? I looked for a fuse for the sensor and could not find one.
Also, I've never had any trouble with my battery and after the first ride with the new sensor I could not restart due to low battery. It's seems to be taking a charge now. Will know in a couple hours.
Thanks in advance for any help give.

You should disconnect the battery for a bit (30 minutes?) whenever you replace a sensor to reset the computer. Just on general principles

Thanks for the reply jred... I ended up getting a new battery as the other was from 1990. That was at least a hour with the battery disconnected. It's still running rough and the idle went from 900 to 1K. That I can live with, I've added octane boost to see if that helps. The knock has lessened but is still there specially when first started.
