    Hello everyone. Just had my flexfuel kit installed. And this happened. All warning lights came on. Car went into limp mode. Had to have car towed back to shop. There were 3 e85 basemaps offered by Hondata flashpro. Tech didn't choose any. Is that reason why my car basically stopped?

    Are you saying the flex kit was installed but the ECU was not configured for it?

    Any idea what your error codes were?

    I'm going to guess that with the flex fuel kit installed and not having flex fuel enabled. it threw a code for the ECT2 and maybe others.

    I will find out tomorrow. It bummed me out big time. Procivic.com were the first to have Hondata and flexfuel combo package for 2019! Not sure of errors. Mod mechanic has that info. Will get the error readings tomorrow

    FYI, the 2019 model uses the same tuners and flex fuel kits as the rest of the 1.5L 10th gen Civics. Hopefully it's an easy fix for you.

    Easy fix it was. It ended up being the PRL intercooler not clamped in correctly. Now it is a rocket ship
