    Default EPC and motor light on :(

    hi, i have a problem with the EPC and motorlight is on. my golf 5 gti is from 2004.

    i got it chipped from 200 hp 280 nm up to 255 hp ca 360 nm. after i have had the chip installed i drove it for about 2-3 weeks. then i heard a strange sound under my car. and later that day the EPC light turned on, and about 1 minute after that then my motor light turn on.... any ideas what would have caused this? any suggestions would be appriceated

    no clue. stop by your local autoparts store or a autoshop and have them scan your car for the codes. good luck

    Default dlight88 m8e

    yes, its the european one. the chip im talking about was really just a software upgrade where they plugged a computer to the car and then loaded the new pogram into the system box... you can check it out here http://www.turbochip.dk/en/chiptuningprices.asp?uid=537

    hehe, i dont know much about cars and tbh not sure what mkv means either
