I'm interested in hearing if there is a resolution as well.
I have a '13 Aventador and I got the 'Catalyst Overheat' message on the center of the screen this morning not long after I started the car. Along with the 'Catalyst Overheat' message, I also saw two icons appear. One of the icons is the yellow skidding car indicating the ESC - Electronic Stability Program activated and the other icon was a yellow 'P' inside of a circle with squiggly lines around the outside of the circle. I was not able to see the second icon in either the Quick Guide or the Owner's Handbook so I don't know the designation (it was low and on the left side). About 15 seconds after the messages appeared, they disappeared.
My car is current on all the software updates and recalls as of late July.
When it happened, I had only started the car (cold start) and let it idle for about 5 minutes and then backed it out of the garage. The messages appeared as I was backing the car down the driveway (car still in Strada mode). The car was not even up to temperature. I got my cell phone out to take a photo to include with an email to the local Lamborghini service department, but the messages disappeared before I could take one. Once the lights went off, I drove the car non-aggressively for about 30 minutes, turning the engine off and back on once during that time (was only in Strada and Sport modes during this time; never Corsa). The messages never reappeared. I sent an email to document this to the local service department and I'll follow up with them on Monday to see if they have seen this issue before.
I had a prior issue where I kept getting the message 'Auxiliary Pump' followed by 'Start Stop Disabled' along with the red 'BRAKE' illuminated. This happened intermittently and at first Lamborghini could not replicate the problem. I took a photo of the dash when it was happening and they were able to see themselves. It turned out to be a bad brake booster pump, which was replaced, and that problem has not reoccurred.
I am surprised at the amount of warranty work and recalls on this car.
