Oxygen sensor power supply, in layman's terms. If your car is throwing that code, check for vacuum leaks or a bad ICV.

EGO = Exhaust Gas Oxygen (sensor)
There is a circuit that heats up the oxygen sensor so it can start to read accurately earlier on (ie, not relying on exhaust to heat it up).

Yeah there is a relay in the main relay box that controls it. It's the same type as the fuel pump relay.
