    AFM Blown?

    I recently replaced my AFM for a new one to try and fix my boost cutting out issues. It seemed to do the trick which I was pleased with and was on for about a week.

    Today though I was driving along when under full throttle the engine management light came on briefly and then went off, shortly followed by the traction control light which flickered a bit, then stayed permanently on until I stopped the car, switched the ignition off for a minute or too and started it again.

    Has my car eaten another AFM in the space of a week? It's not even remapped. Maybe I should consider a remap and get a VXR 80mm AFM. I've not heard anyone complaining theirs has gone yet.

    Cheers

    I would consider Tech2 as that may not be your problem

    are you producing to much boost? Could be outside of the ecu limits thats causing it. Then it could be loads of issues... Tech2 is the answer. Could be knock sensor, you could be blowing the spark out at high revs etc.. tech2 it for sure.
