OBDII Codes List
OBD2 is a car diagnostics device that plus in to the majority of cars after 1995. You can pick one up from Ebay as little as £5 to get a quick diagnostic on your car. But I recommend getting ones at about £30, that you can plug in to your laptop, it’ll allow clearing codes better and DPF regeneration. You’ll commonly find the ELM327 version and there are about 11000 codes.
There are a standard for the codes so that they can be recognised universally. Here’s an example of a code you should see.
