Some of the possible causes for the P0420 check engine light to become lit include the oxygen (O2) sensor not working correctly, a damaged or leaking exhuast (pipe, manifold, catalytic converter) or a damaged catalytic converter. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why do I have an intermittent problem with ABS and power steering lights?


Bad or loose intermittent wire connections to and from sensors. Some unauthorised mechanic has been working on the car? Take it back and talk to the service manager, or the shop owner.

Car dies while driving, has full tank of gas, but all power dies in the car as well, including hazard lights


If the lights are flickering I would be checking for a loose or dirty battery connection. If the power to the cpu is intermittent ( indicated by flickering lights ) that is why the engine dies

My 2007 dodge caliber looses power while driving. The warning light in upper right comes on and goes off. Then it runs fine. Why does it do that?


Sometimes you can get an intermittent problem to display from a Scanner. It depends on the onboard diagnostics. Some cars will store an intermittent defect a certain number of times before it locks on the "Check engine" light.

You can get free scans at Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys. Most do not like to test the car if the light is not on constant. The Dealer may have a machine capable of looking into the History log for your car's computer. But really good scanner can give more options.

This may just be a problem with the wiring of the car's ECU. It could be a loose wiring. The ECU may be receiving power intermittently. It could also be just an issue with the EFI relay. The ECU signal from the EFI is intermittent causing the flickering and the clicking sound.

Engine cuts out intermittently. Traced to brake application, turn signal activation, moving gear shift, opening drivers door. Loose gnd wire??? Can even make it stall by turning on radio or rear window...


An intermittent electrical problem can be maddening to fix. I have a similar problem in my truck. The connection to the engine fuse in the interior fuse block is loose. If I wiggle the fuse to re-establish contact, the engine will restart.

Next time the engine stalls, notice which of the lights illuminate on the dash. Compare this to which lights illuminate when you first turn the switch on and when engine will start. Applying the brakes probably shifts the loose connection enough to cause the engine to stall.

1295 simply indicates that you were in "get you home" mode. 1515 has to do with throttle position sensor fault. Since it was intermittant I'd check for chafed or broken wiring and loose connections

Intermittant engine check light comes on no problem with motor


A check eng lite will very seldom cause any drive-ability concern, you most likely have an intermittent fault like a O2 sensor, have Kragen run a self test for a trouble code, it's fun and it's free!
