    If the spanner light is coming on (with no oil can) while driving, it means the engine has recorded a fault. You will need to get the code read to find out what the problem is. It could be nothing, but best to get it checked.

    You could read the code yourself if you have, or can borrow, a code reader. A main dealer will charge about £40 to read the code. A good local garage may read the code for next to nothing, if they have the equipment.

    There is a free way to read codes, but doesn't work on all Vectras:

    As for the Traction control, the switch on the dashboard is to turn the traction control off (when lit). It is on by default. Looking at your car, I don't think this switch would have been fitted by Vauxhall, as it is generally considered an after fitment by enthusiasts. If this is the case, you may find the switch is for decoration only, and doesn't actually do anything.

    This means if your car does have traction control, you can't turn it off. Start the car (don't press T/C switch), and try and do a wheel spin - what happens. Traction control will stop you from wheel spinning. I'm not sure Traction Control was so common on more recent models. What model is the car?

    Cruise control faults are generally related to a weak clutch pedal return spring. I think there is a how2 showing how to replace it.

    Easiest way to test it is to lift the pedals with your foot and if the CC then works, that'll be the problem.

    Also the CC won't work until the brake pedal has been pressed for the first time into a journey.
