One thing that should be done is to have the car scanned to see exactly what fault codes are logged..if its old codes or codes from a previous repair thats been dealt with. then it would be as you say simply finding someone with a scan tool to go in. scan the vehicle and erase the codes..then retest again to ensure it doesnt come back on or log the same codes again..but ideally you'd want to see what codes you have currently..and then take it from there or as above erase and retest..hope this helps
