    Default How to reset spanner light?

    Hi guys, hope you can help.
    Just picked up my 2.0DTi signum after having the EGR replaced but the garage did not reset the spanner light after doing the work.
    Will it go out eventually after anumber of starts or do i have to drive another 60 miles back to the garage for them to reset it?
    Or is there a way of resetting it myself?
    thanks in advance.

    I know there is manual ways to reset similar things on the Skodas VW's etc...

    I did my sis Fabia the other day and that was.

    Put key in car,
    Hold trip reset button in. turn ignition so all the lights on the dash come on...
    Keep button pushed in untill the inspection symbol turned off..

    Try something similar.... it may work...

    But im sure someone will be along very shortly with the exact how 2

    search the forum

    basically the EML (car/spanner) will reset after 40-odd successful restarts with no fault recurring in that time. Or you could disconnect the battery for half-hour or so (do you have the radio code, if needed?)

    Diet1985 - There is a way to reset the SERVICE light (Oilcan/Spanner), very similar to your instructions - it does involve holding trip reset (and sometimes the brake pedal) before turning on ignition and holding both trip reset (and pedal) for a few seconds.

    If it stays on until the engine has started, it's indicating a stored fault code. As said, after a number of key turns or 'x' amount of days it will clear providing no further faults occur.

    If it stays on after the engine is running, then a fault is still present.
