INPA and the "service engine soon" light

Hello,

"Service Engine Soon" light came up on my dash. I have INPA and NCSExpert installed on my laptop but no BT Diagnostic Tool.
Is it possible to scan the car just with INPA and find out what is the problem?
Anyone with this experience?

How would you connect your laptop to the car without the OBD tool?

You can buy INPA/NCSExpert cable. For example this one:

I have that cable. I thought you were saying you have no cable at all.

******* - I cannot send you more info since you did not provide your private email address. In addition - it is an English language forum. It is not polite to post messages which are understandable to just few of us.
