Well it could be on for a multitude of reasons. Unless you get it scanned nobody will be any the wiser.

If it were me, firstly I'd want to know 100% that it's the Stage 2 map on there, as you know a Stage 1 map will create these warnings.

But as said, a scan will reveal whether it's a sensor related issue. :happy2:

Sometimes a fuses goes under the engine thats related to the cooling fans a emissions and that caused my light to come on, ill find the info might be something like that.

Light shouldn't be on after the map was installed.  :confused:

I had the same light come on after adding a 200 Cell Sports Cat TBE and after having the car scanned (and reset) at JKM Performance it was purely the addition of the TBE that had caused the light to come on with no underlying issues or problems.

As I haven't got my Stage 2 map done yet, it has come back on but at least there's no worry about why.

Get your car scanned and ask your tuner to sort it.
