try resetting the ecu, by pulling the terminals off the battery for hour or so reconnect them, then take it for a bit of a hard drive

engine light on the BA usually relates to an electronic throttle issue

Are you sure you plugged everything in correctly ?

I know SFA about BA's but from what I've read on another forum , it sounds like you may have plugged the Map sensor plug into the TPS and the TPS plug into the Map sensor maybe ?
