the check engine light came on. the cuize control light is flashing and my traction control light is on. I took it to autozone and they said it was my cat. I didn't get the car taken in for the recalls yet. could that be the problem?

Hi,the code for catalyst efficency is P0420,if this is the code no worries this will not strand you the car will continue to run as it is, the good news here is it should be covered under warranty as long as your below 157,000 miles,thanks,or if the car is is needing the recall WQD-40 the catalyst will be replaced at no cost to you,thanks for your time
