ENABLE CONDITIONS

Malfunction Threshold

The EGR valve position sensor output voltage is 4.883 V or more for at least 2 seconds.

Diagnosis Details

Conditions for illuminating the MIL

When a malfunction is detected, the MIL comes on and the DTC and the freeze frame data are stored in the
PCM memory.

Conditions for clearing the MIL

The MIL will be cleared if the malfunction does not recur during three consecutive trips in which the
diagnostic runs.

The MIL, the DTC, and the freeze frame data can be cleared by using the scan tool Clear command or by
disconnecting the battery.

DTC P0420 (165): ADVANCED DIAGNOSTICS

DTC P0420: REAR BANK CATALYST SYSTEM EFFICIENCY BELOW THRESHOLD (BANK 1)

General Description

The three way catalytic converter (TWC) converts hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO), and oxides
of nitrogen (NOx) in the exhaust gas to water vapor, carbon dioxide (CO2), and dinitrogen (N2).

The TWC efficiency does not depend entirely on engine conditions or the deterioration level of the TWC. It
can be optimized by stabilizing the secondary HO2S output.

If the TWC deteriorates, the air/fuel ratio downstream of the TWC (the secondary HO2S output) often
differs from the target secondary HO2S output, and the status is represented by the parameter (SIGSQRLS).

Therefore, if the SIGSQRLS exceeds a specified value for a set time, a malfunction is detected and a DTC is
stored.

1. Start the engine. Hold the engine speed at 3,000 rpm without load (in Park or neutral) until the

radiator fan comes on.

2. Drive the vehicle at a speed between 45 — 75 mph (73 — 120 km/h) for at least 5 minutes, to warm up

the TWC.

3. Set a vehicle speed of 55 mph (88 km/h) on the cruise control, and drive for at least 1 minute.

Drive the vehicle in this manner only if the traffic regulations and ambient conditions allow.

Diagnosis Details

Conditions for illuminating the MIL

When a malfunction is detected during the first drive cycle, a Temporary DTC is stored in the PCM
memory. If the malfunction recurs during the next (second) drive cycle, the MIL comes on and the DTC and
the freeze frame data are stored.

Conditions for clearing the MIL

The MIL will be cleared if the malfunction does not recur during three consecutive trips in which the
diagnostic runs.

The MIL, the DTC, the Temporary DTC, and the freeze frame data can be cleared by using the scan tool
Clear command or by disconnecting the battery.
