A three way catalyst converter (Manifold) with high oxygen storage capacity will indicate a low switching frequency of heated oxygen sensor 2. As oxygen storage capacity decreases, the heated oxygen sensor 2 switching frequency will increase.

When the frequency ratio of heated oxygen sensors 1 and 2 approaches a specified limit value, the three way catalyst malfunction is diagnosed." property="og:description">

P0420 TOYOTA - Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold Bank 1

Repair Importance Level: 2/3
Repair Difficulty Level: 2/3 What does this mean?

Possible causes

  • Three way catalyst converter Bank 1
  • Exhaust tube
  • Intake air leaks
  • Fuel injectors may be faulty
  • Fuel injector leaks
  • Spark plugs may be faulty
  • Improper ignition timing
  • Engine Control Module (ECM)
What does this mean?

Tech notes

As the code description implies the P0420 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 P0420 code is combined with other codes, try fixing the other codes first.

P0420 TOYOTA Description

The Engine Control Module (ECM) monitors the switching frequency ratio of heated oxygen sensors 1 (front O2 sensor) and heated oxygen sensors 2 (rear O2 sensor).

A three way catalyst converter (Manifold) with high oxygen storage capacity will indicate a low switching frequency of heated oxygen sensor 2. As oxygen storage capacity decreases, the heated oxygen sensor 2 switching frequency will increase.

When the frequency ratio of heated oxygen sensors 1 and 2 approaches a specified limit value, the three way catalyst malfunction is diagnosed.
