Tip

I get OBD codes P0420 and P0430



P0420 and P0430

P0420 means Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold, Bank 1

P0430 means Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold, Bank 2

It means that the O2 sensors are good, and the O2 sensors are telling you that your catalytic converter, in the exhaust system is not working fine, as its emissions are polluting the air too much.

The catalytic converter is part of the exhaust system. The way to test this part is by doing an emission test. The two OBD codes that you are getting are already a test telling you that the converter must be replaced, unless an emission test done at a garage says the opposite.

This kind of problem will trigger the check engine light, and your car will also waste too much fuel.
You also risk to get in trouble if the car goes through an Air Pollution control, as the car won't pass an emission test in this condition.

To conclude, the Catalyst System must be replaced, the O2 Sensors are fine.

This is a repair that should be done at a garage, however you can find DIY instructions here:How to Replace a Catalytic Converter or you can get more detailed instructions, and step by step illustrated procedure purchasing a repair manual.

Car sometimes will not start after sits for a day


Definition of Diagnostic Trouble Code P0420 Category: Powertrain Definition: Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold Bank 1Note: This definition of P0420 is applied to all manufacturers

Definition of Diagnostic Trouble Code P0430 Category: Powertrain Definition: Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold Bank 2Note: This definition of P0430 is applied to all manufacturers

As the code description implies the P0430 code means that the vehicle's control module has detected that the three-way catalytic converter is not working properly (is not as efficient as the factory is expecting). Replacing the oxygen (O2) sensors may sometimes fix the code, but in most cases the catalytic convert needs to be replaced to fix the problem. If the P0430 code is combined with other codes, try fixing the other codes first.

WHAT ARE CODES PO330 AND PO320 CTS 2006 CADILAC


I use this website all the time:
https://www.obd-codes.com/p0320
https://www.obd-codes.com/p0330
https://www.obd-codes.com/p0420
https://www.obd-codes.com/p0430

Now the art is knowing how to interpret, the P0320 and P0330 can set off your P0420 and P0430 oxygen sensor codes. I would address the P0320 and P0330 first and probably the O2 sensor stuff will probably go away. If your car is knocking, rough idle, loses power, etc. then the 300 codes make sense and you have issues. It could also be two separate issues were damaged wiring on the knock sensors and then a damaged catalytic converter. I've got a car that constantly throws up 420 and 430 codes because the catalytic converter got dinged up from running something other.

My 1999 Chev Tahoe will not start - Has codes p0430 and p0420


Hi Charlie,
Diagnostic Test Codes (DTCs) P0420 and P0430 ar "Catalyst Efficiency" codes. These simply mean that the catalytic converters in your vehicle are not performing the way they should be. To fix these codes, you will most likely have to replace the converters. However, these codes do NOT indicate why your engine wil not start. There are many things that can cause an engine to not start. Many of which may or may not set fault codes. You need to determine if the engine is getting fuel and ignition first then go from there.
