Why would you want to get rid of the engine management warning? What if you had a serious problem and you never picked it up because this was disabled :hiding: You would kick yourself if you missed it and the engine went ;)

I am guessing that someone has mabe removed a cat and is getting the management warning through a lambda sensor?

Either that or some other mandatory sensor is either dissconnected not working for some other reason.

Gonna have to find a way to foo the MEMS into believeing it is working or get a custom MEMS.

HAving the Engine management light on could well restric performance. On my old Calibra, if the Engine mamangemant light was on it wouldnt allow me to rev the engine over 4000rmp.
i can rev way past 4 :twisted:

When my EML came on it was down to the new zorst system, fitted the gadget that came with it and all was sorted, but took 100 miles to go out again.

Didnt notice any performance drop at all, but was going to get it into dealer to check out, just before light went out again.

And Hob.......DONT THRASH YOUR ZED :hiding: :hiding: :hiding:

It depends on the fault logged.

There are various safety modes it can go into. Could well be changing the fuelling on you if the second lamda is not reading what it would expect.

If you search on MG-Rover.org there are the exact details on how to make the emulator to replace the second filter and get it running properly again. You can of course also buy them ready done off of the Lotus guys.
