    Default Spanner Light Intermittent Fault

    Currently I have problems with my 1.9 CDTi SRi, as the spanner light keeps appearing for a few mins then dissapears.

    It does not seem to affect the performance or driving of the car but does annoy me!

    Does anyone know what it could be?
    It seems like a dodgy connection or something for it just to be doing it now and then as when i turn off the car and back on its not there anymore!

    Booked in on wednesday with Vauxhall, as its still under warranty so hopefully it wont cost anything but I want to check on the basics that it might be tonight?

    Is it the 120 or 150 Engine? Also, what mileage are we looking at here?

    The car/spanner light can also come on if you've got water in the fuel filter (according to the handbook)

    Guesswork has never been a reliable method of fault diagnosis. It could be any number of things which a code read *should* identify more reliably than guessing.
