    Hello, Have a 19 Eco dead stock, 7200 miles, bought new. Just came up with a p0420 code. Ford has a TBS for cat converter on cars made before 10-17-18, mine made in 9-18. Of course dealers are closed at this time of day & closed tomorrow (Sat. 7-6). My question is : is it OK to drive until getting it to dealer Monday? No hesitation or stalling or any other effects.
    Thanks in advance.

    Completely fine, it's just an O2 sensor code that you can clear with no issues. P0420 is the code for the other side.

    P0420 is bank 1, P0430 (what I meant to say in the other post) is bank 2 (driver side and passenger side sensors).

    How did you read the code? A lot of readers will be able to clear also. I use my X4.

    Here’s the Ford TSB (18-2355) for the 0420 code in the event others may need it:
