    Default engine management light?????

    story so far,
    a week ago driving down the motorway 'car with spanner' light came on, went out, came on, then went out all within 30 mins. thoughtb car needed a service but was informed from this forum that it was problem with engine.
    came on again, today, a week later and stayed on. Did some more reading on forum and discovered that some servicing may help, so:

    changed deisel filter, oil (used 5 40 fully synthetic), oil filter, air filter.

    changed air and deisel ones first, started car after turning ignition on-off a couple of times to fill deisel filter chamber, car started fine,'car with spanner light was still on. Then changed oil and filter, started car and light was gone, so i guess that old oil was the problem?? can this be so?? am i right in that the car can tell what the oil is like??

    Thought all was fine until went to go home and noticed that the engine management light wouldn't go out ( light in the shape of an engine), stop started engine, went for a drive, no joy.

    any ideas, car is booked in garage on fri mot being done then anyhow, i suppose that they will have to fix this first.

    cheers. vectra C 1.9 cdti deisel estate 150 bhp. 04 plate
    thought all was ok, car
