    Would be worth getting the codes read again, may be one stored but not "current", so not putting light on

    Some readers / software can only investigate the 'engine' light, not the 'spanner' light codes.

    I made this mistake with my first code reader - thing said everything was OK, even though the spanner light was shining brightly!!
