When my neighbour was telling me they were introducing the diagnostic tool he said from the date introduced any engine/warning lights on the dash will result in a fail and when fully implemented(unknown date) any codes found will also result in a fail and if the car doesn't communicate with the diagnostic too....fail also.

Disconnect and reconnect the battery, this will temporarily clear the code.
