EOBD weirdness

Went out on the motorway, wednesday and management light came on with motor control failure warning message, carried on driving and noticed temperature gauge still at zero, arrived at destination and heard both cooling fans on full blast, chanced it and drove home.
plugged in my eobd reader gizmo, got fault codes and then the thing reset ecu.
fans went off, light went off and temp gauge normal, since then no problem.
fault code was temp gauge malfunction.
The plug in reader is a godsend and i shall always carry it in the glovebox from now on.

Even better, you can get a bluetooth plug and interrogate the thing from your mobile phone without even taking the cover off!
