I took it apart and globe was still 100's. Put everything back and indicator works again. :?

What do you guys reckon, must I return the car to stock before I take it to the dealer?
Will they be able to check for DTC's whilst I run DS software? Newbie on these things. :D

The motorplan and "modded" ST conflict was overcome by my friendship with this dealership. :lol:
return to stock. they might just replace your ecu or reflash it to stock, then you screwed as the unit wont work on the car anymore.

Just got back from Ford.
My cabbie has a P2127 error. :shock: :shock:
Guess what, it is described as follows:

Throttle / Pedal Position Sensor Switch E Low Input :? :?

Even a farking sensor on the petrol pedal, really I give up!
Anyway it is fixed now, connection was loose. :lol:

It stores the error code in what they call Freeze frame. If you reset it, it will check the error for 40 cycles, if it is still there , your MIL will switch on again.

I plugged out my throttle body and switched on the ignition before plugging it back in. Immediate MIL and "partial limp mode". Plugged the throttle bodu back in and light stayed on for about 150kms.

I only reset the code once with the DS? :?
The other ten times it resets by itself? :? How is that possible?

What I mean by the cycle, is you reset it, it will monitor the error, and then come back on. On the oterhand, maybe I am, totally confused.
