DTC P0121: Throttle Position (TP) Sensor 1 Performance

DTC P0420: Catalyst System Low Efficiency

The first code usually means you need to replace the throttle body assembly. The throttle body position sensor is an integral part of the throttle body and cannot be changed separately.

The second code means you have a catalytic converter that is not performing as it should and requires replacement. This can be caused from the car running poorly, lack of maintenance, or other engine issues that need addressed.
