Engine management light

Hi all

First post, so here goes..

I have just bought a Renault Kangoo 1.4 year 2000.
I have since found that the air bag warning light (LED)on the dash has been butchered with a screw driver. Likely reason to cover up a fault ( ribbon thingy in steering wheel?).
I am now worried that other problems may be hidden.
At switch on I don't get any engine management MIL test.
Is this normal? I have unplugged a couple of sensors in the engine bay expecting to get a 'engine' warning light on the dash..but nothing shows. Again is this normal?
If the engine managment light has been disabled can I buy a cheap OBD code reader ( eBay ) to check for hidden faults and if so what type do I need? EOBD came in 2001 so it's too old for that.

Thanks in advance
