    Default Warning Light on start up.

    Whenever I start my 55 plate Vectra C, I get a warning light (car & spanner) on the dash - however, if I switch the engine off and restart it, it doesn't come on.

    Any suggestions as to what this could be?

    You will need to get it hooked up and have the stored code read.

    What's the betting it's glowplug related.

    stujrox, does it go out of its own accord after a few mins without you resorting to having to switch the engine off/on again?

    Or it could be telling you that a service is due.

    Nope, service light is the oilcan/spanner light - if the car is set to ECOService-Flex intervals. Otherwise it'll be the word InSP briefly appearing in the odometer display when you first turn the key.

    as someone else has said its probably glowplug related but you need to get the codes read of the ecu..
    another quick test is too run the glowplug cycle 4 or 5 times before you start the car get the plugs really hot and i bet the spanner light wont come on
    VXR IS FOR LIFE NOT JUST FOR THRILLS !
