    I am narrowing down the answer to my problem through all your comments. Hopefully someone can tell me what the following code means: 10PCM P0430 HC. ??

    DTC P0430 Catalyst System Low Efficiency Bank 2
    Circuit Description

    In order to maintain a reasonably low emissions of hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO), and oxides of nitrogen (NOx), the engine controls system uses a 3-way catalytic converter. The catalyst within the converter promotes a chemical reaction which oxidizes the HC and CO present in the exhaust gas. This reaction converts them into harmless water vapor and Carbon Dioxide. The catalyst also reduces NOx, converting it to Nitrogen. The PCM monitors this process using Bank 2 HO2S #2. Bank 2 HO2S #2, located in the exhaust stream past the 3-way catalytic converter, produces an output signal which indicates the oxygen storage capacity of the catalyst. This determines the catalysts ability to convert exhaust emissions effectively. If the catalyst is functioning correctly, the Bank 2 HO2S #2 signal will be far less active than that produced by Bank 2 HO2S #1. This indicates that the 3-way catalytic converters oxygen storage capacity is below a threshold considered acceptable.

    When the conditions for running this DTC are met, the following occurs:1.The PCM captures the current rear HO2S rich/lean status. The Air Fuel ratio transitions from rich to lean or lean to rich depending on the capture rear HO2S rich/lean status. The Air Fuel ratio transitions a second time opposite the first Air Fuel ratio transition. The PCM captures the response time (the time the HO2S goes from below 300 mV to above 600 mV and from 600 mV to below 300 mV) of the front and rear Heated Oxygen sensors when the Air Fuel ratio transitions occurred.
    1. The PCM measures the time it takes the rear HO2S voltage to cross a reference rich/lean threshold minus the time it takes the front HO2S voltage to cross the same rich/lean threshold. The time difference from the front and rear HO2S is the oxygen storage capacity of the catalyst. This DTC sets if the time exceeds a predetermined threshold.
    Conditions for Running the DTC

    • AIR, CKP, CMP, IAT, IC, MAF, MAP, ECT, TP, EVAP, Right Bank HO2S, Misfire, Right Bank Fuel Trim, Injector, VSS, Engine Protection, or Transmission DTCs are not set.
    • The engine is operating.
    • The ECT is greater than 75C (167F).
    • The vehicle speed is less than 136 km/h (85 mph).
    • The throttle angle is greater than 10 percent.
    • The engine speed is less than 4000 RPM.
    • The MAP is between 25 kPa (3.6 psi) and 80 kPa (11.6 psi).
    • The air flow is between 14 gm/s and 40 gm/s.
    • The closed loop fuel control is enabled.
    Conditions for Setting the DTC

    The PCM determines if the oxygen storage capability of the catalytic converter has degraded below a calibrated threshold.
    Action Taken When the DTC Sets

    • The PCM illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) on the second consecutive ignition cycle that the diagnostic runs and fails.
    • The PCM records the operating conditions at the time the diagnostic fails. The first time the diagnostic fails, the PCM stores this information in the Failure Records. If the diagnostic reports a failure on the second consecutive ignition cycle, the PCM records the operating conditions at the time of the failure. The PCM writes the conditions to the Freeze Frame and updates the Failure Records.
    Conditions for Clearing the MIL/DTC

    • The PCM turns OFF the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) after 3 consecutive ignition cycles that the diagnostic runs and does not fail.
    • A last test failed, or current DTC, clears when the diagnostic runs and does not fail.
    • A history DTC clears after 40 consecutive warm-up cycles, if no failures are reported by this or any other emission related diagnostic.
    • Use a scan tool in order to clear the MIL and the DTC.
    Test Description


    The numbers below refer to the step numbers on the diagnostic table.
    1. Before replacing the Three Way Catalytic Converter, correct any conditions which may have damaged the catalyst.
    Step
    Action
    Values
    Yes
    No
    1
    Did you perform the Powertrain On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) System Check?
    --
    Go to Step 2
    Go to Powertrain On Board Diagnostic (OBD) System Check
    2
    Are any other DTCs set?
    --
    Go to the applicable DTC table
    Go to Step 3
    3

    Check for the following conditions:
    • Verify that the three-way catalytic converter is an original equipment part.
    • Inspect the three-way catalytic converter for damage (dents, severe discoloration caused by excessive temperature, holes, etc.).
    • Insure that the internal three-way catalytic converter rattle caused by damaged catalyst is not present.
    • Inspect the exhaust system for leaks, damage, or loose or missing hardware (area from converter to HO2S #2 primarily).
    • Insure that the HO2S #1 and the HO2S #2 are secure and that the pigtails and wiring are not damaged or contacting the exhaust.
    Did you find and correct the condition?
    --
    Go to Step 5
    Go to Step 4

    Replace the catalytic converter. Refer to Intermediate Pipe Replacement in Engine Exhaust.
    Is the action complete?

    1. Select the Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) option and the Clear DTC Information option using the scan tool. Start the engine and idle at the normal operating temperature. Select the Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) option and the Specific DTC option, then enter the DTC number using the scan tool.
    2. Operate the vehicle within the Conditions for Running the DTC as specified in the supporting text, if applicable.
    Does the scan tool indicate that this test ran and passed?
    --
    Go to Step 6
    Go to Step 2
    6
    Select the Capture Info option and the Review Info option using the scan tool.
    Does the scan tool display any DTCs that you have not diagnosed?
    --
    Go to the applicable DTC table
    System OK

    Thanks. I understood most of your response. I replaced the cat convertors and the rear O2 sensor. Within 10 miles the MIL came on. The car has had a history of the check engine light coming on which no one seems to be able to figure out why. Almost always the light comes on when the engine is idling. The dealer can't seem to be able to determine why. They say everything checks out ok. The car has only 33K miles on it runs well. I am not a mechanic but thought someone may have run accross this problem before.

    Have you had your battery checked or maybe even the alternator? I have been told that a low charged battery could be the culprit for a lot of maladies concerning the C5. Just a guess, I'm not as proficient as Junk.
