    Default cdti 120, spanner light.

    hi all,
    My mate's just bought a 06 reg zafira cdti 120 with what might be a problem and i thought i would ask all you helpfull guys for some advice.

    When the car is cold there is a yellow car with a spanner light through it which illuminates on the dash, after about 1 mile it goes out and all is well. He's had the codes read which showed none present, car runs fine even when the light is on.
    Any clues??

    If you intend to leave it anyway and live with it and if you did attempt to change them and snap one in the head then you would probably be at the same juncture if you see what I mean.
