Engine warning lamp problem!

Postby Klas » Sun Oct 17, 2004 9:29 am

How can I turn of the engine warning lamp?

I´ve got rid of my stock intercooler, and mounted an air to air intercooler in the front of my st165. But now I can´t get the engine warning lamp to be turned off.
Anyone know how to do that?

I´ve got rid of my ic pump to save space and weight.
I have also tried to connect a resistance that is similar to the ic waterlevel sender to the wire, but it´s not working.

I dont know what to do next, I need that lamp to be turned of.

If anyone that have changed to a front mounted ic have had the same problem, Please help!

Before you turn off the CEL, make sure there is no other error codes stored in the ecu.

You need to connect the intercooler sensor wire at the ECU (WIN i think it is?) to ground. This will eliminate your check engine light.
