    Default Service symbol

    Need to stop signing up to helpful forums like these cos getting questions answered just encourages more!! :P

    Since Friday, whenever I start the car the "spanner though the car" symbol appears in the tachometer but goes out after 3-4 seconds. It didnt used to do this and the car seems fine. Service (according to the car) isnt due for another 13k miles.

    Is this something that I need to get checked?

    This means a fault has been registered, and then cleared. If it still exsisted the symbol would remain on.

    You have two courses of action, wait for numerous starts and the light will clear or get a tech 2 reading which will diagnose the event that caused it to light in the first place.

    If the fault has gone inactive, i wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Choose from any of these options

    1. Disconnect battery for 15-20 mins which will clear any stored fault codes.
    2. After 25 (ish) starts with no new faults logged, the spanner light will clear itself.
    3. Take it in to the dealer to find out why the light came o in the first place.

    I was driving on the M74 a few weeks ago and the oil can light came on in the rev counter, but there were no other warning messages
    I stopped and checked the oil level at the next Service Area and it was just below the maximum
    I restarted the engine and the oil can light came on, then after about 15 seconds switched off
    It hasn't come on since...

    Personally, I make a note of when these erratic things happen and then report them at next service

    Different when they are regularly erratic
    I book the car in straight away, just to make sure its not the symptom of something more serious
