Bring it back to the dealer to have them check out the code.

Sorry can't help you more, but the easiet way is to just bring it back to the dealer to have them pull codes.

Question

Check your gas cap -- did you fill gas recently?

If the gas cap is not on tight, the CE light will light up.

LaterZ!

<FONT face="Comic Sans MS">And you have a MY00 RS.. bet you a nickel your front 02 sensor is bad. It's under recall... have your dealer check the VIN against the recall list.

Did you re-set the computer when you installed your intake and exhaust?

If you have low miles on your car then I guarantee its your O2 sensor. You aren't hurting the car by driving it but it may feel different. I had a little loss in power because the computer was trying to richen the car up to compensate from the 'lean' code. At a steady 65 cruise the car would suddenly slow down. You might want to call your local dealer and have them run your VIN for recall status. In most cases they have to order the part in.
