I'm not sure on a puma if it has one what is the code you are getting I have a galaxy and when I plugged it in I could see it was always running in open loop lean which was down to the pump not running its there to heat the cat up quicker and because it was not seen to be running left the car in open loop all the time and putting the engine light on

I have been informed it's the Lambda sensor 

but then I've also been told about someone who changed that and still the light stayed on
