If you drive your car more likely for short distances then engine will not get hot enough to start the regenerating process to clean the cloged particulate filter resulting in a antipollution fault.
Drive your car to a motorway or empty dual carriage way (best in nights). The temperature meter should be showing above 60°C when you begin with this process. Place 3rd gear and drive your car at 3000-3500 rev /min for 15 to 20 minutes to let the ecu to kick the regeneration process. Keep driving car for 15 minutes in this state will be enough to clean your catalytic converter and your problem will be solved. But if it doesn't then the problem is with your catalytic converter and more probabily you need to change it.

the rear exhaust box has filter in it and the sensor is showing it as blocked ,which i think it could be as their is a problem with this model and it has been modified ,i would be inclined to just fit a rear box with no fancy filter and try to do something with the sensor as it will continue to throw up the light which means it will not pass its inspection ,now the dealer might not be inclined to change this box as its expensive i think about 700+euros the last time i had this problem i fitted a normal box and shoved a shunt resistor across the sensor terminals ,but i dont know what the resistor value was as i took a load of old resistors out of an old tv and i tried then one at a time till teh light stayed out ,i know it had a gold band on it but thats about all

Those are multiple problems. ABS is antilock brake system. Normally this comes on when you need to replace your brakes. Also replace the engine oil in your car and have your car tuned. The check engine light will more than likely go off. If not then the mechanic will tell you what needs to be done to make it go off. Hope this helps
