Flashing Warning light/ no idle

please Help.

my 2001 MPI seicento wont idle. it starts fine, will idle for a few minutes then completly die.
i recently replaced battery, starter, alternator, and cam sensor. the car was also jump started, would this have destroyed the cat?
any help much appreciated, Edward.

Re: Flashing Warning light/ no idle

If 'a few minutes' is enough to get the exhaust warm it sounds like a lambda problem. The car is open loop until the exhaust warms then switches to closed loop.

Cheers
