    Engine management light came on

    My engine management light came on tonight when playing on the m-way with an S3

    it was when the car was under load

    it still seems to go so i dont think its a AFM

    only thing i can think of is "boost out of range" mabe as its just been mapped

    any suggestions?

    a week after my map, I had a couple of random 'issues' but after it all settled in no problems at all ( other than a leaking pipe once as it had split a bit )

    Although mine is std I had a similar issue - think i hit a bump and it knocked a sensor or something because it drove fine and once I reset the ECU the light stayed off. Probably nothing to worry about.
