That's weird, I unplugged my front right turn blinker to get it replaced and it did the same symptoms. Guess our car's don't like it when stuffs missing :(

Your car is running limp mode because of the cat delete. The blinking lights and cruise control disable are all part of the limp mode settings.

When it detects that something semi-serious is wrong, it enters the limp mode, which means that the engine won't rev beyond a pre-programmed speed.. I would still get a tune but an o2 sensor spacer from ralitek will fix the Check engine light from popping..

care to explian "limp mode" to a noob?
Also limits boost, disables cruise control, pulls timing... etc etc a bunch of failsafes to make your car run as safely as possible until a fix is presented.
