    sorry for the hijack.
    i had the same problem when i went out earlier,

    ive got the spanner light and the light that looks like the engine block.

    its not showing any fault codes, when i tried, would like to know if its something serious with both lights on.

    will the car stop driving at some point if it is the reg?
    They wont charge you for checking if your car is covered by the recall. if it is covered, they'll replace the regulator FOC and (hopefully) your issue is solved.

    Car runs OK with the light on/off.

    Did 15 miles in it last night, - no light.

    gf has done another 20 miles in it today, again no light.

    I rang vaux in Huddersfield and the unhelpful service man said that there is NO recall for any Signums at all, and if I want anything checking it will cost at least £75

    Think we'll just keep driving it until it stops; easier to find the faul that way.

    I did try reading the codes using the pedal method, but nothing came up - but then if the management light isn't actually coming on, then I guess it wouldnt?
