Angry Engine management light on

Hi All,
I run a 10 plate 2.o manual and for the last 6 months my engine management light has been permanently on.
It first started on a long run to Cornwall towing a caravan and while there I took it to a garage and it was diagnosed as a faulty pressure switch. This was replaced and he light remained off until about a week later when it came on again. I ran the car for a couple of months with the light on until recently took the car for it`s M.O.T. and after it being again, diagnosed as a faulty pressure and being replaced it passed. 3 days later it came on again. Since then I have used the car daily with no problems and more importantly, no loss of power. As the car has now done 90000
I am thinking of part ex. for a later 2.2. and need to turn the light off before I do. I would appreciate any ideas.

I had a sensor error that needed cleared, I bought a bluetooth obd2 connector from Ebay connected it up to my phone and downloaded torque lite - cleared the errors in seconds, light off and error hasn't resurfaced.

The phone app is free, and the obd2 connector was under a fiver. result.
