    Default That flaming spanner again!!

    I think my car can read my thoughts.

    On a short trip this morning, I was thinking how nice it was not to have a spanner flash up on the dashboard for a while.

    Lo and behold, when I returned to the car after parking it for a while, there it was - the spanner. And to make matters worse, it didn't go off on the 10 minute journey home. I turned it off and on again when I got home and the light came on then went off again.

    The last time I had this, I took it to the stealers who diagnosed a problem with the throttle actuator. If it is this again, what does it mean?

    I know the car is drive-by-wire, but what could be wrong?

    Any help very much appreciated.

    if it's the same fault then it's prudent to change the acutator, but get the codes read first..
