Can anyone help? I live in Lancashire. First time I`ve replied or asked for help on this site, don`t know how to use it properly yet?

I bought a scan tool to read some error coder it's OBDII if anyone would like borrow one, please be free to contact me.

I don't want to make any money on it, all you need to pay is Guaranteed P&P fee. Will post to London or surrounded areas.

I'll be brief, I recently joined the forum, completed registration etc. I have a question, re engine management light, but don't know how to ask it? Can anyone assist. I wrote the problem out and it appears under my profile but I've no idea how to ask it. I hope this makes some sense, regards, Richard.

Hi there,
If you have had the codes read , they should tell you if there's a prob, but start off with the simple servicing bits & bobs before worrying too much.
Unless your mate has the correct leads / software for the Volvo it may not show the codes.

Cant you just use any EOBD reader? Why does it have to be the volvo one? What advantages do you get? I use a cheap reader and it clears all the p0,p1,p2 codes.

A lot of the "cheaper" readers will only read engine and poss brake codes,
The Volvo one will do air bags, switches, Gearbox and accessories. Alot more than the usual.

Smile Thanks I wish I was living over the 'pond'

Thanks I live in Toronto so I guess I'm out of the running for that generous offer!

I'd like to ask, can you tell me the grades of gasoline/petrol you have in Britain and the current cost per litre?

Thanks

Ian
