  1. I though I had stock suspension but after having a look it seems I may have nitrons, looks like them anyways. The squeek has only started happening over the past few days, been fine for months. Anyway to stop it? Thank you.
  2. Good day. I have a very annoying squeak coming from the foot well everytime I go over the slightest bump. Sounds like a rubber squeak, like you get if the roof isn't fitted properly. The roof it on properly and the sound is definetly coming from towards my feet. I have tried pushing down on the car when stationary but no noise happens when I do that. Just posting to see if anybody has any ideas before I take it into Lotus. Thank you very much.
  3. Did you fit this yourself? Where is it located in our cars? Thanks
  4. Ok, do you think it is worth taking the front pannel off and disconnecting the battery for 30 mins to force the ECU to reset? I don't particularly want to do this but will do if its going to help.
  5. I took the MAF sensor off and gave it a clean with Halfords Electrical Contact Cleaner and followed a guide on how to do it ( Have also used zip ties like you explained. I just took the car for a drive and it seems better with not stuttering and no error codes however the car does seem a bit lumpy especially when in drive mode.
  6. Thank you so much, I will give this a go today and leave an update on this post!
  7. Thanks so much for the reply. Yes car is standard Exige V6S IPS, Yes I was stuck in 3rd gear. Have you got a link to this TSB? How do you mean secure the connection with the cable tie? Thank you sir
  8. Hi all, New to the forum and new to Lotus Exige V6s IPS ownership. Took the car out for a drive today and after about 1 hour of driving I was coming off a carrigeway and suddenly could not change gear, at the light I turned the car off and tried to turn back on again but it wouldn't start. Took the key out and put back in and then it started fine. Errors on the dash were engine warning light, traction light and transmission light. Checked with the ODB2 reader and it showed the following errors: P0700 - Tramission Control System (MIL Request) P2173 - Throttle Actuator Control System High Airflow detected P2104 - Throttle Actuator Control System Forced Idle P2105 - Throttle Actuator Control System Forced Engine Shutdown P0172 - System too rich Bank 1 P0175 - System too rich Bank 2 I cleared the codes and the car seemed to drive fine when in manual mode on the IPS. In auto drive it feels a bit sluggish almost like their is a slight throttle deadzone. Anybody had anything like this before??? Do I need to clean some sensors maybe?
