I just uploaded the stock map back into my car through the AccessPort but I have no CEL yet. I don't get it? I have a catless uppipe in there, catless exhaust, catless downpipe and now running on stock parameters. I even talked to a guy at Cobb and said I should have a CEL now.

It might take the sensors awhile to realize what's going on. By one tank of fuel you should have a CEL I'd imagine.

Patience, it'll come. If you really must have a CEL ASAP remove the gas cap or disconnect the MAF. Otherwise just wait, it'll show up.

Takes 20 miles at a sustained 55mph or below with no WOT runs for the system to preform a complete diagnostic check on OBD2.

*cough* I know cause bugeye had battery cable pulled right before smog check to clear CEL and it failed cause system hadn't performed self diagnosis yet *cough*


Patience or loosen gas cap like SD_GR said.

Did you perform the work on the car? Is it possible there are some CEL/MIL eliminators in place?

Why are you trying to get a CEL? :sadwave:

I flashed the ecu back to stock, I think you saw the thread I originally made about the AccessPort and my car. So I'm now running a catless uppipe with a catless TBE/DP, so I know there's supposed to be a CEL. I just don't understand why it hasn't come on yet? Maybe there are CEL eliminators. I sure as hell don't know about em' though if they are in there.

This is an empirical question. Eyeball around and see what you find if you're really interested.

This might be my all time favorite quote on any automotive message board.
