    Default Spanner Light Question

    Hi All

    Very recently the spanner light has appeared when i first get into the car and put the key in the ignition.

    However when the car is started and running the light dis-appears and never re-appears again unless i re-enter the car and put the key in the igniture.

    Does this mean i have a fault? The car drives perfectly and was only serviced by vauxhall 6 months ago, less then 2000 miles ago.

    Any guidance please

    Many thanks

    If the spanner light goes out when u start the engine then the ecu has stored a fault if the spanner light is on all the time the u have a live fault either way best to get the codes read to see what the light is for
