All I know is that is CATS and stability control faults, CATS are the adaptive suspension.
This is probably a system problem due to the timing repair.

See if the message clears by switching the car off, or better go back to the garage and see if they can reset the error code by disconnecting battery, to reset the computer.

    I forgot to mention that CATS system faults is usually a problem with the control module, I don't think there is any problem with the suspensions.

Cats fault and misfire wots the fault


have you got any fault codes out of the system? the normal cause of poor running and misfires are the on plug coils. the cat system will report a a misfire to the powertrain control module and that will flag a fault code for a cat problem. check the resistance of the spark plugs because if they are too low they can damage the coils and spike the powertrain control module.we used to change 6 plugs and coils for this very problem, very expensive. the lambda sensors are also troublesome, bank a easy, bank b, good luck. change the plugs and use jag recomended. the fault codes are the key to sorting it out

Cat system fault is on


replace the rear o2 sensors, or beat on the cat.. if it rattles inside there, it is the bad part. If the cat is bad, then check the engine out for the general state of tune. This is because if the engine is not running perfect, then the cat will take all the abuse.

On the 2000 jaguar s-type, what is, Cats system


Cats was a optional extra from the factory. It is adaptive damping. It basicialy softens or stiffens the shock absorbers to your driving style.

It may seem that one of your shock absorbers has developed a internal pressure fault. A local garage with a code reader can tell you wich shock absorber to check. Would be worth checking the electrical connectors that plug into the top of the shock absorber to make sure they are not damaged.

Look's like you may need a new shock absorber

Check Engine Light ON


What codes come on? P0420

The converter's only purpose is to reduce emissions from the engine, in rare cases the converter can disintegrate which could result in a loss of power but this is not very common,

This means that you're Cat needs repair or replacement, You're car will not pass legally smoged without fixing this. :

Good luck
