Wrench light illuminating

Soo last week I completely removed the nitrous system I had in my car, after pulling everything out I began driving it around and the dreaded light came on. Being the ****ty human being that I am, I turned off my car and started it back up and it went away. I've done that about 3 times in the past 3 days and I'm starting to get worried. I'm not sure if it has to do with my tune or what, also idk if it's just a coincidence that it happened after the nitrous was removed. I tried pulling a code from it but I get nothing was I turn my car off, and I'm pretty sure I don't wanna plug my tuner in with the engine running right?

You should be able to plug the tuner in while the car is running. I had to do it with my diablosport and it still works the same. I wouldn't try writing a tune with it running but checking for codes should be fine. You could try asking tuner company too.

Chances are good you have a small vacuum leak or similar. look at all the joints after the MAF and make sure the TB is seated correctly and that the o ring is still in the manifold.

You can pull codes off the main screen if you have the tech package. Just press button 3 and 6 simultaneously for a few seconds and follow the prompts. Car must be at a standstill.

Yeah it was a nitrous outlet plate kit. Bought a supercharger so there wasn't really a need for it, plus I wanted to recoupe some money back from it.

I got that same light after I cleaned my MAF sensor and forgot to plug the connector back in to the sensor. OOOPS.
