    Default bit of a silly question about the horrible car&spanner light.

    I had the rear coil springs changed on my car last week and when i picked it up in the morning after my friend fitted them he said the service light had come not but it hasnt its the fault light im going to get it checked but wondered if it could of come on for anything to do with the coil springs being changed? It goes off after the car is started and seems to be running fine but i'll get the code this weekend hopefully.

    Cheers

    If the light goes off when engine is running it is nothing to worry about. It will stop coming on after something like 25 starts.
    It is possible your mate may have disturbed some of the wiring for the ABS possibly when fitting the springs.
    I think the car and spanner light as a warning that a service is due though. It will tell you in the handbook.
    No doubt somoene who knows for sure will be along shortly.

    You are right, I have had a good few Morgans Spiced, so memory is not too great, but I think I was correct with most of the rest.
