SOURCE: fault code P0421
Aicux...I had the same problem with a Mitsubishi Montero Sport. The code refers to Warm up Catalytic Converter below threshold (Bank 1) which means the two oxygen sensors before and after the cat closest to the engine are showing a variance that is outside specifications. Bank 1 is on the side of cylinder 1.
I researched and found a cause that was NOT in the list of the usual causes. Generally, this code can be caused by the following:
1 Catalytic converter defective
2 Engine Misfire or similar
3 Large vacuum leak
4 Engine oil leakage into exhaust -valve guide seals, piston rings
I have learned to always look for the simplest solution before paying big bucks for things like catalytic converters, oxygen sensors, etc. I discovered my passengers side manifold was cracked. Took off the heat shield and could see the black residue from exhaust escaping the crack. Got a used manifold from partshotlines.com for $65 and installed it. Reset the code with my OBD-II device and code hasn't returned! Problem solved.
Not sure if this is what's wrong with your, but suggest you chek the simply stuff first. Good luck.

P0411 Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow Detected
p0411 is a generic code, probably a vacume leak,vacume hose broken check this first, check the air pump turn on the car but it needs to be cold, you should hear a high pitched whine, this is the air pump running,there are 2 hoses one suction one blowing thishose should be going from the air pump to the air cleaner disconnect that and see what the volume is should be pretty strong.
But mostly you probably have a broken vacume line somewhere
