sorry i dont have a fault code reader but i think it was caused by overboost as the car jumped at full boost in 3rd gear when light came on as would happen if it didnt have the fuel.

i think it will just reset as i have now taken the controller off but cant get it to do it by just disconnecting the battery

Right, borrow or rent a code reader as something did break...the code will tell what. Let me know what you find...
