Default Flashed stage 2, some warning lights cane on in dash

Yesterday I installed my downpipe and flashed stage 2. I took the car for a little run today and I did a quick little pull in third (not to redline, only to about 4500 -5000 rpm and very soon after the check engine light, traction control light came on and the cruise control light is flashing. What could this be?

Also I bought a grim speed heat shield and it seems like there is absolutely no where to bolt it up around the turbo. Any idea what I might have done wrong?

Thanks

reset your ECU, but check the codes first. prob overboost? not even going balls out but i think its that. no big deal. Anywhere nearby for a protune?

Someone had mentioned to me that this is a symptom of too much air or some **** to the O2 sensor and that it's easily fixed with a $30 O2 fooler.

I didn't realize this was the wrong section, my bad. But no there are no protune options available. I am on the torqued performance map with no revisions yet. What do you mean by checking the codes? Sorry for sounding like a newb

use an OBD2 reader, see what the codes are, and google them. Google will tell you what each code means.

how you flash stage 2? accessport reads codes goto troubleshoot or whatever.
torqued performance is not that great IMO. Find a tuner somehow. Drive 5 hours if you have to its worth it.

There isn't an option at all to go protune as I would have to go out of province which isn't an option, as I live in newfoundland. And I used a tactrix cable to reflash. I just used a code reader and the code that came up was P0031 and below it says HO2S heater control circuit low (bank 1, sensor 1).

It sounds like you overboosted. Did the car suddenly loose power just before the dash lights came on?

Also for the heatshield, you need to make sure to keep the factory heat shield bracket on top of the downpipe, it will look like this when on the car.




And off the car:



Thanks,
Rick

That will be the front O2 sensor in your exhaust manifold. Check to make sure everything is plugged in and all of the wires are in good shape. I would clear the code and see if it comes back. The new O2 sensor for that location is a bit expensive, but if yours is bad, it will need to be replaced.


Edit: Here is a good writeup showing where the sensor is and where the plug to that sensor is as well so you can check it:

If you are tuned with the Torqued Performance map e:mail Eric and tell him what happened. When he sent the map notes he left some parameters for you to datalog so you can send those to him and he can adjust the maps accordingly. Did you install the correct map for the intake you have? I know he sends base maps for like 8 different intake setups.

Kind of soon for an O2 sensor to go back. But if you need a new one, either Amazon or Rockauto.com for the best price for direct OE replacement. Don't use the universal crap ones.

Thanks for the help everyone. It ended up being one of the wires on the o2 sensor that was frayed a little bit and it was touching off the heat shield above the downpipe. I taped it up and reset the ecu and the lights went away. I also got the heat shield on there.

And btw. Big difference in stage 1 and 2, it pulls a lot harder now

Don't worry about being up in nfld and no pro tuners around if you want to go further with mods and need a good tune. There are some really good guys out there that do etunes. Phattbotti and clarktuner are two popular ones. I spent my whole life except the last 2 years in the maritime, you can always find ways to work around geographical problems.

Do datalogs and send them to Eric. Right now you are still running an OTS map. He'll tweak the map and the car will run even better.
