Made this a thread.

Doesn't make sense to me as a reply to a Recall news story.

Whups, sometimes a first post to a freshly made thread pops up by itself, forgot to recheck this time.

Merged now so it looks as it should...

I got this cel and my car was going into limp mode. Now it runs even better than before
Sounds like you need the engine harness splice recall repair.

You've either already killed your catalyst, or are in the process of killing it. P0420 is a bank 1 catalyst efficiency below threshold code. The oxygen sensor isn't switching correctly which means either the catalyst is damaged, or the oxygen sensor behind the cat is failing.

Sorry, you guys seem to have misunderstood what I meant. I needed to have the recall splice done last week. I was giving an example of a possible symptom. And after I got the splice done, the car runs better than before I got the check engine light* no more stumbling with a/c on, cold start idle hunting etc. sorry for the misunderstanding. I have a 14. Build date oct 13

Finally fixed the title so it makes more sense...

Should have done it earlier.
