Windows and door locks not working

The voltage moves from 11.9 to 12.0 when the engine is off (key in Pos 2), and stays around 13.9 to 14.0 when on (idle). Is this normal?

I just bought a used taillight (the whole thing), a new gasket, and put a ton of sealant around the gasket before installing.

That would be easiest.

Catalytic Converter

I was told by my Indy that I need a new catalytic converter (rear/bank 2).

Would you guys recommend going OEM, or aftermarket? Should I replace the one that's giving me trouble (bank 2) or both?...
