#1: new cat and 02 sensor; old error code

Posted on 2006-07-19 10:37:37 by honda_part_jockey

sounded like rocks loose in catalytic converter on 99 honda accord,
4-cyl, 4-door dx 5 spd.

replaced cat with aftermarket can. no more loose rocks.

problem solved.

uhh...no.

a few days later, got a "check engine" light. error light flash code 67
(P0401): "catalytic converter efficiency low." checked the cat's O2
sensor. heater resistance was too high.

replaced the sensor.

problem solved.

uhh...no.

a month later the "check engine light" and error 67 are back.

what's my next move?

A P0401 is a code for a restricted egr flow. A p0420 is for the
CAT. figure out what code you really have and get back to us

my mistake. the light-flash code was 67, which according to the haynes
manual is P0420. i wrote the wrong one.
