SES Code Reader Metrowest

Where can I get my engine code read for a Service Engine Soon light. Preferably in the Metrowest and that can do it 6pm-8pm..

It lit up Friday at 5pm. I thought this was why I paid for IDrive..
Thx

you should see a code (not in Idrive)

when you have the code, I'll look it up for you

instructmental cluster
you should see the control messages....I think you have to hold down the button and some letters/numbers will appear...those are the codes

I dont remember the step by step...check your manual

I checked the manual and it didn't say anything about showing codes, just check control. Check control just says All systems okay. I tried searching earlier for it and couldn't find a thing.

if All systems okay...then I'm not sure what you're talking about?
try idrive to see if you have any service due

if you do have error/warning...you should see the error on the display
use the lever (turn signal) to scroll the menu
ones you're at the discription of the problem..hold the ">BC" button and the codes will magically appear (the manual doesn't show you this but does show you the basics)

Next time I'm out there i'll take a pic. Its just the "Service Engine Soon" light on the dash. Neither the dash or idrive screen acknowledge it.
