MIL after fitting K&N

Recommended Posts

Evora NA here, I have very thoroughly followed the service notes and other tips from here, to strip out my air box and MAF assembly completely (I also lubricated the gear cables).   I fitted a K&N panel filter, reassembled everything correctly but now have a MIL light on, which I wasn’t expecting…!

The car drives completely normally and the light isn’t flashing.   It doesn’t go off when driving.  I haven’t made any other changes.

What’s my best bet in terms of a code reader to identify the fault code(s) and hopefully clear them?  Any guesses as to what has triggered it?

If anyone else has had this after fitting a K&N please let me know…

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

A temporary fault will illuminate the light for 5 on/off key cycles then disappear. It's worth picking up a cheap bluetooth code reader all the same should you have similar again in the future :)
