    Smile car/spanner light

    When i start my car from cold the spanner light stays on for about 3 minutes then goes off, it then stays off all the time while engine is warm but comes back on when engine is cold again, any ideas what this might be ??

    Thanks

    strange as my 1.8 has just started to do this, but it says in the hand book if the light comes on for a short while then goes off,"that is normal" so I take no notice, in fact the symbol has had a mind of its own for the 20,000 miles I have had it, no faults have ever showed up.
