Many people have the same problem after the installation...
I'm not sure what do you have to do, exept to doble check your installation...Did you disconnect your + terminal of your battery before installation??? if not try to disconnect it and put it back on it can help...
Go to INSTALLS-(top right on your scrren )and you will find the installation info...

unhook the negative battery terminal to reset the ECU.

if the CEL comes back, check your install to make sure all the hoses are hooked up. thumbsup

Short Ram usually never gives you CEL...i don't have one...




but disconnect negative battery terminal to reset ECU and you should of had it disconnected while installing it and check all hoses while it's disconnected.

the AEM instructions are kinda confusing esp.about hose disconection and reconection.
make sure all the hoses are connected properly and to the right places.
then reset the ecu..

Mine came on after i installed mine, but the reason was because when i took off my air mass sensor it got dirty. So try to clean that, and then reset the battery.
