Engine warning light came on after I had filled with petrol. Looked on the web and the most likely cause was a to do with the petrol tank/filler cap, and nothing to do with the engine management system.
Disconnected the battery as per web as a means of resetting the sensor, but light remained after I reconnected.
Purchased the above on ebay - £ 9.95 because I only wanted to cancel the error code . Recognised that there was a error code, but wouldn't tell me the code number nor would it erase. Sent email to supplier who asked for a video - which I thought was reasonable and I may just be doing something wrong.
He offers me £2.50 refund - I politely declined and requested the full amount plus return postage if he wanted it back. He has come back this morning with an offer of £4.75 and I can keep the scanner - which doesn't work.

I'll wait until 13 June and request ebay help.

The seller on ebay is million*billion just so that you are aware .

I have found a lot depends on the vehicle. These devices often do not work well on older vehicles, and some vehicles have manufacturer-specific error codes that extend the basic set supported by such devices.
What was the vehicle that exhibited this behaviour?

I had an issue with my discovery that the local garages diagnostic kit wouldn't identify. It could clear the fault though. I took it to a specialist and their kit was the landrover version.

I am waiting because ebay won't accept the complaint until 13th - today.
However, seller provided full refund today (13th) so I suspect he was negotiating, although I wasn't playing - and he knows when ebay will accept a complaint and won't budge until the day arrives.

Also, started the car this morning - no engine warning light illuminated must have reset itself, eventually.
