Engine warning light
#1
Hi guys, here's the problem...
Engine warning light is on but my odbii code reader says there are no faults. Is it a crappy code reader or a dodgy dash light?

Any clues?

OBDII can't read all the codes. You have to use Lexia.

Beg to differ brajomobil. A good PRO reader will have no problem (Snapon / Launch / Mac etc) Mine even reads airbag, security and ABS faults gives live data etc:
I use mine all the time as it's a pain to fire up my laptop to use Lexia / PP2000. I Only use Lexia for certain PSA specific stuff like Peugeot cabriolet roof issues. I suspect the OP has a cheapy ebay special which aren't too clever.

Col you are right. There are many universal scanners that are really good.
As good as OEM tool. Maybe even for less price.
 I can't offer help on using those scanners simply
because I don't have one. That is why I'm "pushing" Lexia .

i have a few scanners.

all work to an extent for a quick fix BUT if im ever in doubt about what the cheepies are telling me OR they tell me no fault or cant give me a code.

I break out the lexia and it tells me everything.

Its even surpassed the garage' snapon unit at times (the MAF sensor being dead didnt give a code on the snap on - it does on lexia)
