    Exclamation Engine Management Light, fault doesn't show on U480 scanner

    Hello gents

    I've had a spanner light up on the dash since last summer. Had a mate run the U480 Handheld scanner over it and cleared any errors it picked up. I've disconnected the battery for an afternoon, and unfortunately it's still there, but the U480 hasn't picked it up.

    Is there a certain category of errors that don't get picked up by the scanner?

    Has any one in the Birmingham area got a Op-Com/Vaux-Com scanner they could run over it for a few beers?

    Thanks!

    once going it's alright, but starting in the very cold it struggled (thought it could be glow plugs) and now still get a plume of white smoke and a bit of a chug until it gets going.
