thats not a very helpful description. i'm assuming the X4 has a function that allows you to see what the CEL code is. check it and see what it says.

i don't have a X4 but i just looked it up online and there is a users manual posted and tells you where it is. essentially go into the diagnostics menu and just do what the device tells you.

Plug in the x4 and turn the key to the on position. Then select this setting.


Then select this.


It will then give a description of what the codes are causing the ses light to come on. Let us know what they are.

Nope all I've done is add a catback exhaust and the tune intake I got 3 days ago

Had that issue on my first tune. Get a hold of your tuner. They will make an adjustment to make that pesky light go away

Same thing happened when I got my tune/intake from steeda. Drove around for about an hour and a check engine light came on, lean bank 1 and 2. Called and found out they didn't put in that I had a CAI with the tune. They sent an updated tune and everything has been good since.

DO you have an Intake that needs a tune? If so did you tell Steeda which model CAI when ordering the tune? These are the most common codes that show up with a CAI that needs a tune that is not set for it.

edit: Like the other answers, let them know, they will fix the tune and the codes will go away.

They still need to know because the sales dept is separate from the tunes dept.
