exhaust light

Recommended Posts


Does anyone know why the red light on the dash that has a picture of a hot exhaust on it lights up when im driving it hard...obviously its getting too hot and warning me..

The car smells of overheated rubber hose also and sometimes puffs steam from under bonnet although the temp gauge is at halfway(crap stock gauge i know)..It just seems to be hotter than i would expect under the bonnet..

Its only running stock boost too..

Ive only had the car for a fortnight and its the first Z ive owned and dont want to damage it before i can enjoy it

Thanks for your help....steve

I think that's the cat overheat light your referring to.


Car will be overfueling and causing the cats to fry, could be O2 sensors or some other kind of problem.


Best to get it checked out, I'd also say you may have a coolant leak from the steam from under bonnet, defo get that checked out as if you fry the heads on the car you'll pay a fortune to fix it.
