    Default 2.2dti spanner light at idling?

    Right recently the spanner light of doom has been coming on as soon as i turn the ignition on. I can get it to go away by turning the car off and starting it quickly again, however as soon as i let the revs hit tickover its back on and back into limp mode GRRRR!! The car drives as it allways hea if the revs are kept over about 1000rpm.

    Anyone got any ideas? thanks.
