    Default Vectra Dashboard warning light (car with a spanner over lapping it)

    Recently on a morning I have been starting up my Vectra C 2.0DTI 53 plate, and on the dashboard is showing warning icon.

    The icon is a car with a spanner over lapping it.

    The service manual advises that it is an engine electronic or transmision problem. The icon only shows for a few minutes then dissapears.

    Is there any way I can find out what is causing this dashboard light without paying a garage to put it on a diagnostic machine.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Karl

    I have found a How2 for "Read Fault Codes For Free and Without any Equipment".

    It is a function that is started by using your accelerator and brake pedals in a certain sequence.

    Have not tried it yet but I plan on trying it soon.

    I have the same light on when I am starting the car but as soon as it is started, the light goes out straight away.

    Is it possible to have a copy of the How2 document?

    I have the same problem - Just changed my glow plugs, next day I went and moved my car from my garage to the drive and light didn't come on! This was great until when I took it out for a drive later that day and as soon as I started it up the light came back

    On a brighter note it only does it when the car is cold now
