I think you need to supply more info, What year and engine type, what code reader did you use and what codes did it bring up. A lot of code readers give you duff info the only one that works properly is lexia fom what I have read about it. Was the car running different to bring on the light.
Are we there yet????? Huh

The fault is not with the instrument but the person interpreting the results, when looking up a fault code the art is in understanding what is wrong. A code reader for instance does not spell out "EGR valve needs replacing" so a lot of money could be wasted replacing parts that do not require replacing...

I have seen one instance where a non-Lexia gave a fault code related to an LPG setup. On a diesel motor!

Have been banging my head against a wall elsewhere on the internet with a fellow who's got a blocked cat, and is constantly misreading the symptoms as causes. Amazingly (?) he's been that stubborn for almost a year and has replaced a bunch of unneeded stuff.
