Smile Faulty Management light

A bit of info. I had my oil warning light came on. So I manually checked the dip stick and oil level and found it to be ok.
So I knew straight away it was a faulty sensor. I then purchased a Mini ELM OBD2 V1.5 Car Bluetooth Scanner Android Torque Auto Scan Tool from eBay - 3.50 .I know it mentions android .... but works with windows phone with below mentioned app. Also get version 1.4 or 1.5 and stay clear of version's 2.0 and above because lots of Chinese copies on eBay that do not work.

I have a windows phone Nokia Lumia 550, I then downloaded a windows 10 phone free app called "Car Scanner" and read the instructions on app to clear this fault. Hay presto ! fault cleared and the warning light is out. Probably saved a small fortune if I took it to Honda garage. Happy Days

Fault cleared, but was the issue resolved? you will probably get the light back on if you havent replaced the odd sensor.

ELM327s are read only devices, the only thing they can do is clear codes.
