You'll need to drive it for a bit for the light to come back on. Have you checked the coils and the plugs?

No not yet that’s tomorrow’s job I’ve bought better plugs as it’s stage 2 so think ones in are rubbish may just do coils as well

That's probably going to be the easiest to diagnose before you dig too deep. Keep us posted
