    Default warning light

    My car went in to the garage and has had a new alternator and battery fitted, when the car failed to start due to the battery being dead I had the spanner in a car light come on, i think this is the engine electrics light?! The light was still on when I picked the car up so I had it removed all the fault codes were minor things, but now the light has come back on so I'm just wondering what its likely to be? Car drives okay although it doesn't feel like 150bhp any body had similar problems? Constantly drive as I live in the countryside so can't afford to have the car off the road for a day all advice appreciated )

    Cars a 1.9cdti 150

    Hmmm -

    1.9CDTi 150 - yup a lot of possibilities.

    The spanner light is any "non-emmissions" related fault

    When the spanner light comes on, how long does it stay on

    a) On until the engine is started - A historic fault has been logged, but is no longer present

    b) Spanner comes on for approx 4 minutes then stays off - One of your glow-plugs is failing, or there is a potential wiring loom glow-plug controller fault

    c) Light stays on continuously - There is an on-going fault, which needs to be read off via any diagnostic tool.

    It is possible that the garage has failed to reconnect one of the connectors in the engine bay following the work on the alternator and battery.

    Check the MAF sensor is connected on the airbox?

    We have just fixed a similar problem - it turned out to be a split air tube coming from tubs near the radiator that influence acceleration; prior to that I'd been searching these forums for turbo repair hints.
