    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : GSI

    Engine : 3.2

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 45000

    Default Fault code 0422

    Just had the dreaded spanner come on just a few weeks after a major service, one which cost me over £1400 due to various bits and bobs needed doing. Anyway using the code flash count I got 10-4-2-2 which I presume is 0422, Main Catalyst Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1) the warning goes out after 5 seconds, does this mean it has logged a fault which has gone or not?

    Thanks.

    HI,
    Also got strong smell in cabin on first starting car, I thought this was to do with the full service I had done previous weeks but the smell is not fading very much 3 weeks on.
    idea's anyone?

    It's quite choking in a subtle sort of way, sneaks up on you and gives a sore throat. Smells sort of like plastic and washer fluid. I can't smell the same smell under the bonnet.

    Did you get this sorted? My GSi is giving the same symptoms. Any clues on where to start would be appreciated.

    Got it sorted by taking it back to stealers, all that they told me was they reset the spanner, but they obviously did more. So sorry I do not exactly know what the cause was.
