Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today.

Mark :

The first thing you need to do is have the car connect to a suitable scan tool and read what code has been stored.

Mark :

There are 100's of possible codes so trying to guess which is causing your problem is near impossible.

Mark :

When any code is detected it will bring the light on.

Mark :

Once you know what the code is you can then check the system to find what has caused it.

Mark :

It could be a faulty component, faulty wiring or a mechanical fault.

Mark :

Hi.

Customer:

hello, thanks for the response it looks like a visit to a mechanic.

Mark :

You can buy a cheap scan tool for about £20.

Mark :

Will tell you the code but you still have to work out what caused it.

Customer:

unfortunatey i'm not mechanicaly minded. think the best option for me is a visit to the mechanic

Mark :

As long as the light doesn't flash it shouldn't be too serious.

Customer:

no its just a solid ***** *****ght

Mark :

If it ever starts flashing, you need to get it checked asap.

Mark :

Do you need anything else today?

Customer:

no that the only prob I have. i'll get onto the mechanic that serviced the car earlier this year

Mark :

Ok.

Customer:

Mark :

Customer:

Mark :

Mark :

Thanks.
