    It's the EMISSIONS warning light. Could be the MAF sensor or something similar.

    That's a Roger on that mr Hyde ! Been there done that on mine,dtuk tuning box, they fly when you fit them but can show up other things that aren't quite up to standard, remaps are better but will still stress other things. Ive ran mine standard for the last 3 yrs and that's how it's staying.
