    If the spanner light goes out when you fire it up it means there has been a fault recorded but the fault is no longer there, the spanner light will clear itself after so many starts where no fault occurs.

    Which spanner light? 'Spanner and oil can' = service due indicator. If it's 'spanner and car' then there is a problem that should be investigated under warranty......or am I being daft?

    If the spanner and car light stay on when the engine is running there is a current problem, if it goes out after the engine has fired the fault has cleared but a fault code has been stored - you can get the dealers to read the code but this happened to me a couple of times and when i took it to the dealers they said there was no fault code there... the spanner light will disappear from the ignition being switched on after so many "good starts"

    is this the sort of stored error that a cheapo halfrauds style FCR can read?

    "spanner and car" light comes on when you first turn on the ignition and it then goes out after about 10 seconds or so, the manual says that this is of no significance (p156) This is on pre facelift models.

    It kept doing it on my 03 DTi so i had it tech2'd just to see if there were any faults recorded and there weren't. However it later turned out that i had problems with my glow plugs and this was causing the spanner and car light to come on.

    might be worth getting you glow plugs checked
