    Clearing the diagnostic trouble codes does not necessarily means you solved the problems, learn more about these codes here; http://repairpal.com/obd-ii-code-p0420 and http://repairpal.com/obd-ii-code-p0430

    With the same tool used to retrieve the codes and diagnose the problem. It is very likely that the engine light will go off again if the issue is not repaired.
