The p0302 is a misfiring code. It could be plugs or coil pack. The p0420 code reads Catalyst System Efficiency Below Treshol. I would start with the plugs that is the cheapest route to start out with.

Cooling Fan Operation
The Electronic Control Module (ECM) regulates the voltage to the cooling fan relay. The relay operates the fan when the engine coolant temperature exceeds 106°C (223°F) The cooling fan will turn on automatically during extended idle conditions under 5 miles per hour. For diagnosis and location of the relay, refer to Electrical Diagnosis.

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak somewhere in the engine's intake manifold. Put a vacuum gauge to it.

This symptom is usually caused by a poor connecrion. Remove the battery cables from the battery, clean them, and replace them tightly. If that does work, check the other ends of the cables for good connections. If all good, it is possible one of the cables has failed internally--under the insulation.

You only need to change the tail light fuse if it is blown. If you haven't checked it already, do that. Those stop/tail bulbs are 2 filament bulbs. One filament is for brake lights, and other filament is for the tail lights. So it is possible to have brake lights and no tails, if the filaments for the tail lights are burned out. But of course, it is unlikely that all the tail lights would be out and all the brake lights still work.

You may need a voltmeter to help solve the problem. It could be a problem in the headlight switch (a problem with the park light function), but is more likely a problem with the Lighting Control Module- or the Body Control Module-whichever your car is equipped with. GM first came out with the LCM, and a year or two later came out with the BCM. Both are mini-computers to control lighting and cabin functions. You would have to use a voltmeter and check things like power in and power out at the BCM of the park lights. You would thus need a wiring diagram to go along with the voltmeter. Those modules are located up under the dash-you can use google to see pictures of them, and maybe find locations.

Wheel bearing. A wheel bearing will make that noise when load is put on it. Changing the direction of travel could make it louder, or it could go away. Change the wheel bearings.

The horn micro relay is in underhood fuse box, number 21 in the circle. Your owners manual should have this info. If you don't have an owners manual, you can look at one for free,
It'll ask for year--make model. The relay might not be the problem?

Hello Vason,

Is your engine light on?

If so, you need to plug in a diagnostic OBD II reader. Acquire the codes and follow their designation to determine the probable fault source.

And yes if any monitored system, for any reason, does not complete its start up cycle your vehicles ECC will not provide the green light all is well return to the diagnostic tester.
