SOURCE: CTS CODE PO420
most of the time its the sensor that cause this,id try replacing the sensor on it,that usually fixes that code,but you have to get the code cleared off with a scanner ,and then re-scan it to make sure it doesn't come up again,good luck with it.

SOURCE: I got code PO420 and PO430
Here are the most common problems,
Air leaks at the exhaust manifold or in the exhaust pipes. Catalytic converter is damaged, contaminated or has failed. Front HO2S or rear HO2S is contaminated with fuel or moisture. Front HO2S and/or the rear HO2S is loose in the mounting hole. Front HO2S older (aged) than the rear HO2S (HO2S is lazy)
Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. Autozone turning the light off does nothing for you, and is against their company policy. If you do not have the proper tool, reference materials or experience I would take it to a professional. Finding out the trouble code is just he start of the diagnosis process.
Hope this helps.
