If you have any dash lights on after the motor is running,
your going to have to get the DLC under the dash connected
to a scan tool, to see the codes & all data

You probably have several issue that have to be resolved &
have been there for months or years & ruined the exhaust

Lately it seems even the best running motor loose a cat, because
I assume the cost of Platinium,Rodium & such, that is plated
on the converters,the makers skimp on what used to be a converter
that would last 14 years & some the life of a car

Today's technology & people lack of knowledge & desire to
spend a dime, a couple time a year to have the vehicle data
looked at, causes the converters to die in a 5 or 6 years

What does the service engine light mean on a 2015 Ford Edge

Service Engine Soon

If the Service Engine Soon indicator light stays lit after you've started the engine, the On Board Diagnostics system (OBD) has detected a malfunction of the vehicle emissions control system. Contact your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
If indicator light is blinking, an engine misfire may be occurring, which could damage your catalytic converter. Drive in a moderate fashion (avoid heavy acceleration and deceleration), and have your vehicle serviced immediately.*
The Service Engine Soon indicator light illuminates when the ignition is first turned on (prior to engine start) in order to test the bulb, as well as indicate whether the vehicle is ready for Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) testing.
Normally, the Service Engine Soon light will stay on until the engine is cranked, then turn itself off if no malfunctions are present. However, if after 15 seconds this light blinks eight times, it means that the vehicle is not ready for I/M testing.Check this link out Gary.

Why is the muffler turning red on a pontiac grand am se

You've got a lot of unburnt fuel getting into your exhaust or the catalytic converter may have failed too. I would expect the "check engine" or "service engine soon" light is on.

Does the lancer have two catalytic converters? If so, is there a picture or a diagram of where it is please. Thanks!

HI. This vehicle should be equipped with a 4 cylinder power plant, which only will need one catalytic converter unit. It is connected to the main exhaust pipe, after the exhaust manifold.

Service engine soon light flashing

When the Service engine light is blinking that means that your engine is misfiring and can cause damage to the engine and the catalytic converter. Having the car connected to a code reader should explain what is happening and what cylinder(s) are missing or what could be causing the issue
