Ok, i'm trying to narrow down what could be the cause of the
Toxic Fume Light coming on!

After chatting with Magnex, he believes it may not be the injectors, lets be honest, the clip doesn't indicate it either(well not on mine anyway)
and possibly due to a poor standard mapping.

So i want to find out if the people running the remap(better map) are having the Toxic fume light come on at all, even with the 267Bhp etc

Only limp mode has been the issue with the remap.
Your problem may be coils or catalytic convertor sensor problem or the cat its self, seem to remember someone on the RS forum had this problem.

She has four new coils and still comes on, well its an excuse to get the remap and see if a better mapping solves it.

Quote by webcode If the "toxic Fume" light comes on you really shouldn't drive the car, as the fault indicates that there is a misfire..

The misfiring cylinder will obviously not be burning correctly and therefore dumping unburnt petrol into the exhaust, This in turn enters the Cat and will very quickly destroy it as it ignites and burns the monolyth due the extreme Cat operating temperatures.

It could be a reason to reject a warranty claim for Cat replacement, although generaly Cat failure due to a misfire should be covered under consiquential damage..

Like i say i have 4 new ones, and it still does it

The facts are i have a misfire on cylinder No.3
but the CLIP wont say what the problem is!

I guess i could run a compression test, i have the tool, just not the car at the moment!
:cry:
