Mine was 8 years sold and had 35 000KM ....... It did sort of pass the test in manual but my Multimeter flashed once during the test so I used a scope and saw that there was a definate drop in one of the segments...
The problem I was haveing was an internmitant dead spot right off idle and poor idle. There was no trouble code.
