how to delete check engine light with hondata flashpro

Post by bnotes17 »

fairly new to this site and i could not find the answer to this. i have a 2017 honda type r. i just installed a catless invidia downpipe last night and could
not figure out how to use the flashpro to get rid of the check engine light. i am sure there is a way as i've read it somewhere sometime ago that the flashpro can do this. anyone? thanks in advance.

If you have a catless downpipe you need to disable o2 and reflash the car. make sure to disable the secondary o2 sensor and p0136 and p0139 from closed loop then reflash the car with your desired tune. that should fix the check engine and rev match errors.

well, just tried this and it didnt work. am now finding that it is not an isolated case on my side. i've read elsewhere that other people are having the issue and i have the latest flashmanager as well. once again, everything was fine, on my 17 type r until i installed the invidia catless downpipe, so i am sure it is the culprit. i've known from before that the flashpro can fix this why i ended up with a catless.

With the software open and everything connected begin datalogging and look at the error codes and see what error code has been set.
