    Default spanner light

    Hi i have just picked up a 2004 2.2DTI SRI on friday car with spanner light was on guy says some valve i think he said solenoid valve was replaced as it was something to do with the gases and vauxhall reset the light but it might take up to a week for the light to go off completely as it takes various readings just wondering is this independent i bought it from talking through his ass as i have to call him monday to let him know how it going and also tell him radiator seems loose..... and while i remember the 3 buttons on left side of steering for manual tuning and flickin through presets isnt working at all would that just be a quick change of new part required? many thanks folks

    He's fed you bull crap mate. Once a fault is fixed the light should go out straight away after being displayed as a check light.

    The only time it should remain on is when there is a stored fault code, but this only applies UNTIL the engine has been started then should go out.

    so what else would cause it have noticed on longer run that light would go out occasionally when driving but come on again when car restarted. there is no loss of power at anytime

    You need the fault code(s) read out. No need for guesswork then.

    right apparently the place that makes the clocks for vx or vx themselves arent giving the guy i bought the car from a price for new clocks so he can put it through warranty company but he says some electric fella says he could fix it. what do i do the clocks could go again when warranty expires and im screwed again or does anyone know how to find out how much clocks would cost? its really annoying me now and making me not like the car especially as i have wanted one for ages and took me a while to find this. march 2004 2.2 dti sri.
