Sorry but there's a solid chance you've got a fried ECU, I'm assuming the fans are on as soon as you try to start the car. I'm not saying you've caused the problem but you're not meant to drive it with a CEL too, it's called limp home mode so you can limp home, not drive it all week.

Can you try a known good ECU in the car?

yea i was limping home ... i live in canada car was in Arizona ... was a band new ecu i had fried original on factory injectors . i put in rc units then a new ecu and then made my way home . car went into limp within a 100 miles but i was commited at that point . so its home but yea i am really hoping thats not the case . because what ever fried the ecu will still be in there and i am not going to put another ecu in if it will just cook again .

the more i get into the runnings of this car the more DPO i find .. i am going to scrap the entire lotus managment system and go with a modern stand alone .. As parts become harder and harder to find . and i am making a complete new harness anyways ..
