    Default should I worry?

    Went to start car up and BEFORE you start her up,the car with spanner symbol comes on,start her up and it disappears,never appears again.Unless you turn her off and as before when starting

    2004 54 1.9CDTi (150)

    Dealer says unless running rough etc or poor mpg,not to worry about it.Also handbook says"If it illuminates briefly,but does not recur,it is of no significance".

    Sounds like the sytem might just be doing a self diagnostic run and found nothing so i wouldnt worry until it stays on..

    I can not for the life of me see how that has made a difference.

    when a service is due, it comes up with a little logo of a car and 1000 written over the top. Mine (both my c's) do the large spanner logo on startup for a few seconds then go off. Its just the diagnostic check running. If it stays on all the time or keeps popping up while driving, get it checked.

    It ain`t the service light.
    It`s never come up before - the spanner symbol - at any time.

    Hi All


    Just Got Intouch Wiv The Top Workshop Controller Technician At The Dealer I Go To And He Said The Spanner Symbol Is The Emmissions So If It Lights Up When The Ignition Is On And Then Goes Out After Startup Then Its Nowt To Worry About,hope
    This Helps.
