    My zed now shows no fault codes. I had the thermostat housing changed today which has now cured the last fault code I had "thermostat control"
    For anyone wondering what this means as I have read after searching it occurs quite regular.
    The thermostat housing has a kind of heating element inside it you will see the connection plug for this if you look on top of your housing, from what I have read this element heats up inside the thermostat housing when you are giving your car some stick keeping the thermostat open to help keep the engine cool.
    If you have a fault code saying MAP cooling or electronic thermostat control, then this is your problem
