Default Malfunction indicator light

I am after some advice. I've recently bought a 2009 suzuki splash. Been ok for 6 days, but yesterday and today the malfunction indicator light has come on. Yesterday I was advised to take it for a drive, and as I normally don't go above 30, I was told "you need to give it a clear out, if you drive slow or not rev the engine hard the emission light will come on. The emission sensor soots/clogs up. Run it down the highway keep it in 2nd or third for few extra minutes.

Yesterday evening the light did clear. and it was clear for a while today, but its come back on again. Anybody else experienced this problem, and how to resolve it? Assistance would be appreciated Thanks.

I have moved you here as your Splash is a Swift variant.

We need to know what code triggered the MIL so that we can better serve you. Please get the computer scanned.

Your location would help (at least the origin of the vehicle) in guiding you too.

I'm not sure where or how to get the computer scanned. My location is UK.

Code reading is dictated by the type of computer system on board. Codes are displayed by either a flashing light sequence OR directly to a scan machine.

Not sure HOW you are configured. Either hope for another member to chime in or ask your local Auto Parts provider. The latter often have free scanning, if that is your system's code reading type.
