usa car?2.0L engine, the stock car had nice wiring , harness wiring and clamps and works great, until..but someone hacked yours all up, why not photo the clock light, no idea at all what that means.photo it and post .does clock mean the TIME CLOCK or does that mean the SPEEDO CLOCK warning lamps glow, see 2 photos of me guessing what clock means , on your car.what makes you think the cat is too hot, do tell. why.? (sure they do , and is symptoms of rich)but is normal to get hot, they all do.the cat can go to 3000F normally, you do know that right.?my guess is you failed to scan the PCM.or ask any shop in town to do that.(if the check engine light is on get car serviced)same for too hot cat.same for misfire, makes cat hot too.same for sure if the CEL lamp flashesthe operators guide tells you that that means overheating the cat, as designed to do.on all cars.the burned wires, are hacks.Hacks as in letting unskilled works touch car.they hack it up bad. (or butchers)the weak wires do not get near the cat. on a stock car.then come to the 02 at 90degree angle,the o2 wires actual pig tails wires are high temp special wire, very high temp..but not the harness side, they will melt if hacked , hacker cut the clamps up and allowed the soft low temp harness side hit the cat or exhaustHe did a hack jobhe fail to put it back as he found it, sad no?. the engineer of your car designed the cat and wireto be ok, even if say , then engine thermostat failed cold and the fuel mix goes gross RICH.that is all part of the engineering done !!!see those cat shields, they also must be in place.then the CAT gets way hotter , why hotter, this is its job.it's job is to burn up (catalyze ) all that wasted rich fuel.to keep the earth green. (includes lungs)it burns HC, Hydrocarbons and gets even RED hot.the problem is 2 foldbad wiringand not scanning the PCM.2 fold.
