    Default Spanner light

    Following on from this thread http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=162068 I was expecting everything to be solved. But I have a small problem now.
    When will the spanner light finally stop showing?

    So if you haven't read the thread a quick explaination.
    My horn stopped working so I removed the centre section of the wheel and airbag. Battery disconnected first and when I'd put it all back together everything is working fine. Even the horn seems to work better not needing a firm push like it did before.

    So the spanner light shows on start up when the car is left parked a few hours or overnight. If I start to drive with it on it goes out after say the first mile of driving. If I restart the car immediately the spanner light will go off and stay off, until the car is left again for a few hours, then it's on again.
    Will disconnecting the battery then reconnecting clear this for good or is there something else that can be done? BTW I must have started the car around thirty times now and I've read it will self clear after a few starts, but not so it seems.
    Any ideas what to try apart from the battery disconnect, reconnect?

    It is a diesel, Signum 06 plate.

    Hmm....I see your thinking on this, but a coincidence I think that it only started showing the spanner light after I'd had the battery and airbag disconnected.
