Don't unplug a scan tool with the ignition on, you can cause faults like this. I caused a D900 and 'engine fault' by unplugging early in the Focus.
You really need to have the codes read with a specific tool, a modded ELM327 with FORScan is ideal and cheap.
Which engine was in your Fiesta? If it had a DPF I'm surprised 4 mile drives were ok for it tbh.
DPFs don't have to cost 4 figures, I paid £200 for mine and fitted it myself, probably an hour or 2 labour at a garage if you can't. Also hope to get around £100 back from scrapping the old one. Obviously the quality isn't quite as good as the OEM 75% more expensive one, but its not 75% worse lol.
Thanks for that mate. just had a look at that ELM327. nice price on it, but i don't have a windows laptop.
So if i bought a cheap windows laptop, what operating systems are compatible? also, if you've used it, is the software easy to use, as I'm not really computer orientated other than basic usage, but can follow instructions pretty well.
any info you have is much appreciated.
