Some systems require that the actuator has an adequate supply of brake fluid. Low brake fluid levels can mimic the symptoms of code U0451, so consult the manual to locate the brake fluid reservoir.

If your heated catalyst temperature below threshold (bank 1) check engine light is illuminated, it's best to take it in for diagnostic testing, which can feel like a hassle. Because while the lights vary in appearance from vehicle to vehicle, all have the same basic meaning: There's a problem with the car's emissions system. The on-board diagnostics system U0451 and engine control unit are in charge of monitoring a bunch of different heated catalyst temperature below threshold (bank 1), and if they get a reading that's a little out of whack, up pops the check engine light.
