Usually when the engine light is flashing the engine is severely misfiring and it really should not be driven. We may have a problem with one or more ignition coils as I see this on your vehicle. Sometimes oil from.leaking valve covers can drop onto the coils. The CATS fault indicates a problem with the adaptive suspension. Could be a shock or sensor. I have also seen instances of water or corrosion on the module which is in the trunk in the spare tire wheel well. Let me know.
