    Check the MAF sensor plug is back on properly, (assuming you took it off to change air filter).

    Try disconnecting the -ve side of the battery for an hour or so. The spanner light might clear itself.

    Had this on mine when changing the air filter but in my defence, I had forgotten to plug the MAF back in.

    Does the spanner light just come on briefly when you start up and then go off? If "yes", then not much to worry about. If it's on all the time, then it's a bigger problem which I haven't got an answer for.

    Mine's been on and off for the past 18 months but is for a different reason - incoming air temperature. Like yours, car's performance is 100% and can't fault anything so I live with it.

    Try this http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=81742 and come back to us with the results. HTH

    Yes that is correct. Mine has started to illuminate and go out again when started.....happened when i had wheel spin in reverse, dunno why but it upset something briefly (Auto)!!!

    This symbol should disapear after ( i think) 20 to 40 fault free starts
