Hi folks,
Got a question for you.
I am running with a decat pipe, has anyone had any problems with their lambdas as a result? I am getting an engine light come on, I reset it a few times as it has been running ok and the light remained off for a few weeks, however yesterday it came on, I reset it and it came back on about 10 minutes later. (pic attached)

Is the decat likely to be causing this? What are people's experience of running decats?

I am still not sure what is causing my P1141 error code.
The code above (P0136) is a lambda error code, it says it is pending, therefore I guess it is working ok and the ecu has been confused by another sensor somewhere and the maths/curves not matching expected tolerances?

Any comments please as I am currently just resetting it again ad keeping my fingers crossed :)

I was running with a decat with no probs up untill a trip to the range last week when a off duty traffic cop with a keen nose tapped on the window and basicly told me get it fixed,by the look on his face i dont think he was impressed with the loverly rasp it made when i booted it up the road neither,
back to standard now as i looked on the net :eek:(up to 5 grand,)
