www.ross-tech.com) is designed to plug into the OBD-II socket so if you can locate one on your engine you should be laughing. May take a little more effort however if you don't already have the right socket.
As the previous poster suggested, it is fairly pricey to buy but if you also own a VW, Audi, Skoda, Seat group car then I have found it to be extremely useful for diagnosing the odd engine management light before taking it to a dealer as needed so has easily paid for itself as far as I'm concerned. Also allows you to do things like add cruise control and Driver information system if it wasn't installed from the factory and setup tow bar ECUs correctly to name a few.

Sorry guys, I am only interested because my friend has had this problem, I do not intend to buy diagnostic software myself.
I can fix old fashioned engines, take them apart and put them together again without having many parts left!
But I am amazed by your responses. It means that on modern cars (and boat engines) you can not do much without these diagnostic tools!
The world has changed, in my young days most things could be fixed with hand tools...
