    Default Car spanner light on cold start

    Hello
    My 2.0 dti has a problem with the car/spanner light coming on after cold start. It then goes out 15-30 seconds after driving off.
    No other sign of this warning when driving on longer journeys or when starting from warm/hot
    An advice please before I trust it to my local dealer for diagnosis...!
    Many thanks

    Many thanks for your replies.

    Hopefully not so serious (i.e. expensive!) then. I'll take it to my local garage for a new set of plugs and see if that sorts it.

    Just pray they don't snap any when removing them!
