    Default Car with spanner warning light

    Hey everyone after some help. Was driving on Friday and went from a 30 mph limit to a 60. As I put my foot down and got to around 3k revs there was a small jolt and then a car with a spanner light came on in the rev counter

    When I stopped and turned the engine off and then on again it went and has been fine until today when the same thing happened again.

    I have recently had a new battery and wondered if this could be anything to do with it?

    I do have a warranty from where I got the car from until june so I can take it back and get it fixed but if it's something simple that I could fix this would save me the hassle of taking the car back to be fixed.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi guys,

    Sorry to bring back an old thread but I found this thread in google when trying to search my issue and im having EXCATLY the same issue accept its happens about about 4.5K 5K RPMs. I don't have any fault codes at this time (its booked to go into vauxhall who will get some I guess) but just wanted to see what people thought it could be.


    I have an 04 Vectra 2.2 Direct (Z22YH) - it started about a month ago and happens every so often but not all the time.

    Its just had a full service with spark plugs changed so thats ruled out at least

    Cheers.

    sound like my car did the same. the boost drops maybe boost hose leak. just a thought. til codes are read!

    Just remember... all codes do not mean its the thing that are causing problem. it can be something else that cause that thing to not work correctly hence the code. if this makes senses? so give all codes.

    always a bit awkward without a code
