Hi I’m Tom and I’m here to assist you with your issue today. Before I get you a fully researched answer, I have to ask you a couple preliminary questions.There is an ECM Update for this issue and this should be done first and can very well fix this problem.If after the update is done I have seen these cats both fail at the same time and cause this issue and if thats the case they will need to be replaced.These are the next steps.Remember that I'm here if you need any further assistance just let me know it will be for no further charge.
