    Default Toyota Vitz 2003 Check light on After Cat. Converter removal

    Hey PW's,
    I had my vitz's Cat converter removed after it had become extremely heavy and the average had gone down to 7-8 per liter. I showed it to the exhaust wala. He said that he would remove the cat. He said that no complications would be involved and all. After he had replaced it, the light came on. I first disconnected the terminals (battery) and it went away. It came back after a while. I showed it to toyota who scanned it and told me I needed to replace my Cat converter and O2 sensor. He estimated nearly 120k for both! I went back to the exhaust wala. He sent me to a mechanic of his. The mechanic said that the catalytic converter was choked. The ECU had set the values accordingly. The heat valve had been opened. Now when it was able to get air, it could not re adjust the values. He said that I need to replace the O2 sensor and it would go away as the new sensor would adopt to the conditions. He quoted a total of 4000/- with labour for a Kabuli sensor. I need to get this light to go away. What should I do? I'm really worried! Please reply urgently! Does anyone know any toyota (japenese) spare ppart dealer in Bilal gunj? I need to get a new Oxygen sensor with a Catalytic converter.

    even a brand new sensor won't fix it, but repositioning the sensor might work

    How can we reposition the sensor? Should I just buy a new (kabuli) Catalytic converter?

    you simply wasted time over this forum since 2009, removal of CAT converter is HAVOC for the JDM vehicles. Though cat converter does have a life span but not so short to be replaced at under 200,000 kms. Fater Cat Con Gone, it is not impossible but also not easy to get your vehicle in optimum operating conditions check with @rustam54 he will be of your help but not for free.

    Thanks
    No one else here has issues with it. Should I get a kabuli catalytic converter and install it? @rustam54 , your help is required.

    can you collect back the CAT converter from your mechanic / silencer shop? am sure he must have cleaned and sold that for price of gold. to some other fellow. cleaning is possible as DIY or at the silencer shop it self throwing away is a mistake.

    I had asked him to get me a new one (kabuli) but he assured me that removing it is a better solution.
