Check, record and then clear the error codes. Then check later and see if they came back again. If error codes come back it is a good indication that there is really something wrong with the part of the bike that the error code points too.

SOURCE: engine management light

I had the same problem when i fitted a racing chip, the engine management light came on when i reconnected the battery, the workshop manual says there is 2 reasons for this 1 is a fault has been detected and if it is not logged in the memory idle the engine until the auto fan starts then switch off and allow a full shutdown of the electrical system, then restart. If this does not work then the fault has been logged in the memory and only the agents can remove this with the diagnostic tool.

SOURCE: Won't idle without choke

The pilot jet controls the air/gas fuel mix at idle . If the jet gets plugged up not enough gas gets to the emgine at idle. You will need to remove the carbs and float bowls and clean them, paying special attention to the pilot valve. Count the number of turns to remove the pilot screw and replace the same number of turns then turn counter clockwise 1/2 turn.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

The engine light coming on and going off is normal. It's part of the start up sequence. If the light goes off then comes back on then goes off again it means you have a " historic " code. Meaning ans event that happened in the past. If the light stays on and won't shut off then you have a " current " code. meaning it's happening as you are sitting there.

Warning light on rpm gauge


The light you see is a security light. Usually it shows up when the security system is armed. If the light stays on then I would suggest getting in the car and closing all of the doors. Then press the lock button on the key fob. Then unlock the car with the key fob and it should go away. Try starting the car afterwards to see if the light goes away if it doesn't when you unlock the car with the key fob.

Maintence light is blinkin when i start my car


Generally, the maintenance light should come on for a few seconds, then go off after the car has started. All of the dashboard warning lights do this so driver can tell they are operational. (Should see brake light, low oil pressure, airbag warning, etc. Any of the lowly "idiot" lights should come on.)

As a test, turn the key on, but not to start. All of the lights should flash on for a few seconds, sometimes in sequence, then go out. Now, sart the car, some lights may come on and back off. If none stay on after a few seconds of engine running, you are probably ok.

Lotus elise 2005 fob and key does not work


Re-synchronize the FOB if the problem is with just one key.

1. Hold down both buttons simultaneously until the fob LED goes out. (10 seconds)

2. Release both buttons -- the LED should come on and stay on.

3. Press the larger fob button for a second, and the LED should flash.

IF re-synchronization doesn't work, you may have to replace the fob. Call customer service with your PIN (on the key-card that came with the keys). IF you don't have the PIN, then you need to call customeor service to confirm/register your ownership of the car.

If the keys are re-synchronized and it still doesn't work:

Re-program.

1. Re-synchronize as above, if you have not done so.

2. Turn the ignition on 3 times within 7 seconds. The red light above the odometer should light and stay on for 3 seconds.

3. Enter the PIN. Immediately after the red light goes out as per 2 above, switch on the ignition and count the number of flashes until it equals the number of the first digit on your PIN, then turn the ignition off, then on again. Do this for all four numbers.

4. What a pain, but if you get it wrong on a count, then you can restart by turning the ignition off for 10 seconds.

5. After the fourth digit, if the PIN is correct, the red light will stay on. Then you can re-test the fobs, and it should work.

Otherwise, call customer service.

Hope this helps.
