Dispite being obvious to many while on the subject of checking diagnostic trouble codes I thought it would be good to add that prior to that you should check that the CHECK ENGINE light comes on with ignition and goes out when engine is running.

Although uncommon it could be possible for someone to remove the CHECK ENGINE light.
Either to try and mask a fault or due to the fact light was always on due to incorrect style of aftermarket chip being installed in the ECU.

Cheers,
Damian
