    Default Reading fault codes

    My 2008 1.9CDti (150) Vectra has recently started showing the car with spanner light. I read online that the fault codes can be read using the pedal test but can't seem to get it to work.
    I'm pressing the accelerator and brake down whilst turning the ignition to the second click but nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong? Really dont want to have to take it to the garage if I can avoid it as it's just been serviced and is driving fine...

    I don't think the pedal trick works on the diesels... you could pick up a cheap code reader.

    When does the spanner appear, if its after you have just fired up 1st thing in the morning for a few seconds then it's most likely to be the glow plugs, if it's random & while driving but not going into limp mode then it could be the egr sticking.
    Although without having the code you won't know for sure.
