    Default Car symbol with spanner

    Hi guys

    I had this symbol come up on the dash today but not sure what it could be without having it plugged in somewhere. I recently carried out the airbox mod and egr cleanout. I also changed a front spring as it had snapped. This was all done on friday but the light only came on today. It clears when engine is turned off but does not take long to re appear. I have a 54 plate 1.9 cdti 150. I have checked all plugs and the car seems to drive like normal but it does annoy me having that symbol there.

    any help appriciated

    thanks

    Could be a whole handfull of things. You need to get the codes read.

    No, not the spanner through the car. The oil can through the car is the service symbol.

    Maybe different symbols on different models, but was def a service light

    They may just have forgotten to reset the interval and it was serviced. Double check the symbols in the manual.

    Sometimes they forget to re-set the service timer type thing, if you have a search on here there's instructions on how to do it

    I service my car myself so I reset it every time I service the car
