There are a few threads on this, reading between the lines most people belive it is due to a faulty Idle Speed Control Valve (error code 505 on the ECU diagnosis). Apparently common fault on other CCC vehicles too. Mine also hangs on and even increases the revs when lift off and I will be getting dealer to investigate based on the above at next service, i'll post if I get it sorted.

Dupe...

It would be usefull to hear what the dealer says one way or the other.
One general question, does anyone know if the dealer can still get error codes from an ECUtek'd ECU?

can't see why not
it's only the maps that are changed/re-flashed
& that shouldn't affect the OBD systems

The reasons they gave were:
1/ By holding the revs between changes it gives better fuel economy.
2/ It stops fuel surges being dumped into the cat, therefore not breaking emission standards.
So whwt do you recon to that???
