you need to have it fixed. get a diag and repair on the trans code and a shop for the code for the cat. clearing the code does not fix it. you need to address it before it becomes a bigger problem. Roy

P0420 is low catalytic converter efficiency. It is an expensive code to fix. Usually it is a sign that the cat. convt. has got lazy but it is sometimes a O2 sensor/air fuel ratio sensor problem.
