If you reset PO420 code can you still diagnose problem


When it returns. P0420 is a bad catalytic convertor. Nothing else will set this code. It will need to be replaced.

You will get a 420 if the Exhaust Converter is worn out.

You need professional tools to diagnose that

Po420 code on an 2001 dodge neon


The code means the catalytic converter is not functioning as it should, sometimes because the engine is not reaching operating temp, and sometimes because of a fuel problem.
You may need to hook it up to a scanner and watch the sensor readings to diagnose the problem.

My 2000 Cadillac Deville engine light on. Engine code PO420


Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1)

A code PO420 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Leaded fuel was used where unleaded was called for
  • An oxygen sensor is not reading (functioning) properly
  • The engine coolant temperature sensor is not working properly
  • Damaged or leaking exhaust manifold / catalytic converter / exhaust pipe
  • Retarded spark timing
  • The oxygen sensors in front and behind the converter are reporting too similar of reading

  • Check for exhaust leaks at the manifold, pipes, catalytic converter. Repair as required.
  • Use a scope to diagnose the oxygen sensor operation (Tip: The oxygen sensor in front of the catalytic converter normally has a fluctuating waveform. The waveform of the sensor behind the converter should be more steady).
  • Inspect the downstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2), replace if necessary
  • Replace the catalytic converter
