once you go to a Power Fc that light is used as a "check engine" light.

^you sure about that? I thought the pfc didn't have any codes. I know the manual says that you have have the pfc flash the CEL if the knock goes over a certain level but I didn't see anywhere in the manual where it talked about flashing the exhaust overheat light.

There is a sensor is the passenger floor/trans tunnel. The light will come on if the cat gets too hot, heats up the sensor, and could possibly heat up the cabin.

How long have you had your car? You never once thought to push that button, I mean light.LOL. How many people here actualy own a FD on this forum? A button that will over heat the exhuast, hum thats cool, havent figured out why I would want my exhuast to over heat.LOL.

Sorry I just thought it was funny to think of it as a button.

if any sensor readings are out of whack the pfc will light up the exhaust temp light. then you can go the check sensor screen to find the culprit, which will be highlighted. it will light up the CEL for knock if enabled as you mentioned.

I get a lot of comments from new passengers (3rd gen virgins). "Why would I want to overheat the exhaust system?? And why is it on MY side of the car??" Always funny...

David Beale, is the sensor closer to main cat or pre-cat?
