    Vehicle : 2007 Vectra

    Trim : SRi XP Saphirre Black

    Engine : 2.0 16v Turbo

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 60k

    Default cold start only, spanner light?

    Any ideas chaps?

    Only happens in morning, or at the end of a day at work, never after a few hours or anything. Start car, the light wont go out. Turn ignition off, then restart, goes out. Car is performing fine, fuel economy not dropped, all perfect... just annyoing as past few days basically had to start it twice to get the light off! And yes, starts fine everytime?

    Go it booked in for Tech II this evening, but just wondered if anyone had a heads up on this first?

    Cheers

    Mike

    Sorry I can't help, but good to see you again, and the Tech II should tell you what it is, probably a faulty sensor.

    It could be worth checking the glow plugs, maybe one or more not working. I had this with my cdti.

    Most likely to be the glow plugs or a pre heater fault somewhere... with the dti's on the older vec's the light used to go out without restarting when the engine had a little heat.
