I am looking at a used car for my wife. The salesman admitted that they had cleared a MIL, but did not know what codes there were.

I found a P2004 code that they said they will fix.

Here are parts of the scan I did:
In the top section of the log it states:

Mileage: 89410km-55556mi

Later:

1 Fault Found:
15198 - Intake Manifold Flap; Bank 1
P2004 00 [096] - Stuck Open
Intermittent - Not Confirmed - Tested Since Memory Clear <--- does this mean that the fault has not happened AFTER the MIL was reset?
Freeze Frame:
Fault Status: 00000001
Fault Priority: 2
Fault Frequency: 5
Mileage: 89413 km <--- How can the mileage be greater than when the scan was performed?
Date: 2022.11.29
Time: 16:55:35


1 Fault Found:
67330 - Switch for Central Locking
B122D 29 [008] - Signal Implausible
Intermittent - Confirmed - Tested Since Memory Clear <--- does this mean that the electric door control module confirmed the fault existed AFTER the MIL was reset?
Freeze Frame:
Fault Status: 00000001
Fault Priority: 2
Fault Frequency: 1
Reset counter: 47
Mileage: 89404 km <--- is this the milage when the fault first occurred, or when it last happened?
Date: 2022.11.22
Time: 07:48:39

1 Fault Found:
9637138 - Loudspeaker 2 in Double-Subwoofer <--- searching the net finds lots of this occurrence, but I have not been able to locate which speaker this is.
B130D 12 [009] - Short to Plus
Confirmed - Tested Since Memory Clear <--- again, does this mean that it still exists after the MIL was reset?
Freeze Frame:
Fault Status: 00000001
Fault Priority: 5
Fault Frequency: 1
Reset counter: 46
Mileage: 43759 km
Date: 2019.03.31
Time: 20:48:15

If someone can help explain the issues i am having I would appreciate it. Or point me to where I can find an explanation for the statements in the logs.

I think so.

How can the mileage be greater than when the scan was performed?
The mileage at the top of the scan is obtained from a channel that does not have the least significant digit. So it can be off by as much as 9 km.

<--- does this mean that the electric door control module confirmed the fault existed AFTER the MIL was reset?
Faults in the door module have nothing to do with the MIL / Check Engine Light. Ditto for Speaker faults.

Please post the whole scan.
