MG MGF Technical - Engine management warning light

My wife has bought an mgtf on 04 plate - 1600cc. The warning light comes on every so often and the dealer fixes it and says it'sthis sensor or that sensor. Can anyone shed any light on the problem ?

My light comes on from time to time. Rather than pay a dealer to switch it off every time I bought an OBD2 reader for about 40 and do it myself (2 minute job). It shows a fuel mixture problem and I've always put that down to me moving it in and out of the garage without letting it heat up properly. If I let it heat up and run the car then I never have a problem.

Hi David,
which reader did you buy and would you recommend it.
Cheers Simon.

It's certainly paid for itself in the last couple of years.
