    Default When putting ignition on.......

    Hi all can someone tell me on a facelift vectra when you turn the ignition on and the lights come on the dash does the car with a spanner symbol stay on until the car has been started or does it go off with all the others?

    I would have thought it should Not come on. But if it did, and went off with all the other lights, there would be nothing to wory about.

    If there is a stored fault code (but not a current one), then the car/spanner light will remain on until the engine is started.

    Yep, car/spanner icon appears briefly when the ignition is switched on and goes off before you start the engine. Same goes for all other dash lights (I imagine its a ignition diagnostic check), except for the emissions icon, which stays on and should go out and stay out on starting the engine.
