    Default insp light on dashboard

    Hi guys hope you can help me, this is my first post, so here goes! got a vectra sri 150cdti, only got it yesterday, its a jan08/57 done 18000mls, ive been to Cardiff today,280mile round trip, when I got back I noticed insp light on dashboard came on for a few seconds when I took ign key out, does this mean it needs a service ? If it does need a service that means that the garage did not service when they said they would, or could there be a fault with the dashboard light or faulty sensor ? How does the system know it wants a service ? Also ive also noticed that the glow plug light doesn’t come on when the engine is warm, it came on first thing this morning when it was freezing, is this normal? Apart from those 2 faults, it is an absolute dream to drive, superb, i just dont know why they lose out to mondeos? Sorry if this sounds a bit stupid but ive been driving around in a old diesel mondeo without the bells and whistles for the last 4 years!

    Glow plug light only comes on when you turn the ignition on.. then goes off after a second or 2.
    it should never come on when warm, unless there's a fault!

    Vehicle : Vectra cdti estate

    Trim : Get a

    Engine : Dirty diesel

    Year : 2006

    Default

    did you purchase from a vx dealer ??? if the garage said they would service it then they prob have and not reset the service light, cos it was not lit at the time...just go back and ask them to reset it for you
    as above with glow plug light the cdti is really really quick on heating them and my light has never ben on for more that 2-3 sec's even on a blooooody cold morn, and hardly ever been on after that at all the rest of the day....

    Glowplug light only comes on at low temps. No glowplugs required when the engine or ambient temp is high enough.

    INSP means it need a service, or they forgot to reset the counter when they serviced it.

    thanks guys for the quick replies, no i did not purchase from vaux dealer, so if insp light stays on all the time, then that means they havent serviced it ? or, is ti more likely they have serviced it and not reset it ?

    Most prob they didn't know how to reset it!
    ask them for a copy of the job sheet they done, to show that they done the serive.

    and then if they can't reset the dash! there is a very handy how2 on it.
