Clio 182 Milltek & Milltek Decat Engine Light on



  Suzuki Swift Sport
Hi there,

I have a 182 (55) with a Milltek Cat Back and Milltek Decat pipe (with Lambda in)

It was fine for the first 2/3 weeks, however after the EVO triangle run noticed the orange engine light appeared in the bottom right corner of the instrument panel. However the car feels to be running absolutely fine and not noticed an increase in fuel consumption or any rough running. Power feels exactly the same as before.

I know this has probably been covered before, but I wanted to just clear up a few questions I had if anyone could help.

Is it likely that damage is being caused to the engine due to bad emmisions?

Would taking the Lambda Sensor out and replacing it with a Bung sort the problem? also as a result of this would the engine never optimally?

Are there any other solutions?

I was considering disconnecting the battery to see if that resets it, but havent found my radio code as yet!

It's a recurring fault code fella. It can only be reset by flashing the ECU's log.

Mine's been on for 18 months with no problem... it's part and parcel of running a decat.

Ah right so its not going to cause any problems?

Does your car suffer bad fuel economy? Also what if there were any probs? You wouldnt be aware then would you? hmmmm

The ONLY difference is that it runs slightly more roughly until it's warmed. It'll pop and bang on the over-run until it's up to temp... say 5 minutes or so.

Other than that, it's perfectly fine!

Yeah mine does that too - quite like the popping - although it did that when the light wasnt on!

Might invest in some black tape!

the bit what would scare me is that if you have an accident and it was a bad one! ins companys love any reason not to pay out!

so you cant declare a decat can you :S

Just thought, a few of the Honda guys used something in place of the 2nd sensor that tricked the ECU & removed the lights, I'd of though it'll be a similar thing with the Clios or no?

I can't for the life of me remember the name of the poxy thing though :(
