I just instaled a Focus Sport intake on My 06 ZX5 and now the engine light is on. Anyone know why this would happen?? I installed it as the installetion sheet said. Re - connected all electrical aswell.

Thanx Bullet

About the easiest thing to do now would be to just extract the codes and see what they say.

Well either bring it to the dealer to get a the CODE sucked out from a special Machine they have or maybe you have some connection to a person who can do that for you.

you can also try and DISCONNECT THE BATTERY for APPROX. 2-3 Min and see if the light goes off. Yet it will prob come back on.

Thats not a bad idea, but i woudl try more like 10-15min or remove the battery and hold teh brake pedal for 30 sec and then hok it back up.

Double and triple check all electrical and vacume connections just incase.

This happened to me before. If you forget to reconnect the MAF sensor and start the vehicle it will throw a MIL until you either clear hte code with a scan tool or disconnect the battery for about 10 minutes.

Same here, ^^^^
Disconnect it and go for a coffee!! Make sure all is connected as it should be and try again. If the light comes back on, get the code info and fix as needed.
