    Default Spanner light coming on Vectra SRi 1.8 Y reg

    The Spanner light on the dash comes on intermittently during motorway driving, never on short urban journeys. Seems to be only when i'm doing over 65/70 for a longer length of time. Can get rid of it sometimes by slowing down or changing down gear to up the revs!! Got car in France til the summer so can't just pop down to the vauxhall dealer. Anybody got any ideas as to what I can check by myself?

    Earth the pin and count the blinks on the light. It will blink out the codes, then you can look them up

    Would the paperclip trck work on something as 'new' as a Y reg Vectra though. I'm sure I've read elsewhere that it wouldn't.

    According to the TOPBUZZ website, it'll only work on cars up until around the yr 2000, and their listings only show up until 1999 for the Vectra-B.

    ps, the mk1 Vectra was actually the mk3 Cavalier
