After Counter Weight Delete Dash Light on

ok just did the mod and did read all 13 pages of this stuff and found nothing on my problem, my tranny light is on. so i have no clue but i drove down to the gas station drove all 6 gears and downshifted and they are all there and work no problems, but the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT is on i think it's mad about me taking off the weight, but trying to take it off i did move it side to side to find the best pisiton (sorry my spelling is bad i just spent 3 months in mexico city lol my english is bad) to get at with the wrench, any ways it works fine i like it but i don't like the CEL (light from heck) . HELP por favor... lol

*i didn't knotice it until after the gas station where i did get the right gas and put cap on correctly so that shouldn't be the problem


^^^I'd ask that question in the Technical Chat Forums...
But, I will offer a little bit of help here.
I take it that the (!) light is on?

Multi-function:Automatic transaxle / cooling system
(On SPI, Zetec E or automatic transaxle vehicles only)
Momentarily illuminates when the ignition is turned to the ON position and the engine is off.
If the light illuminates while driving, have your vehicle serviced.

On the SVTF, that light generally indicates a cooling problem, not transmission, since we don't have an AT.
Did you by chance knock a wire loose or anything?
I can't see that removing the counterweight has any bearing on that light, unless you did happen to disconnect something.

Again...please start a new thread in the Technical Chat Forums, and I'll just cut/paste my reply there instead.
