Sudden loss of power after remap
Sorry if this question has been asked before, have searched threads but couldnt find anything specific.
Had a remap 10 days ago, very pleased with it. This morning driving at about 60 on dual carriageway I overtook whilst in 6th gear. The MCSF light came on and it went in to a kind of limp mode, that is even with accelerator pressed, no revs above 2000ish (cant be 100% sure).
Stopped at fuel station, turned engine off. Came back turned on, and although MCSF light is still on, the power seems to be back. My thoughts are that the acceleration on the engine in this weather (gauge had only just hit 90 but oil may not have been ready) tripped the ECU. By turning off then on, it reset the ECU but not the MCSF warning system. Am I on the right lines?
Will call the remap guys at lunchtime (wont say their name as it's prob not their fault but they are highly recommended on here). In the meantime, any suggestions from you knowledgeable chaps?
