    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRI VX-Line Nav

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI [170 PS]

    Year : 2015

    Mileage : 27000

    Default Spanner Light but no Limp Mode

    As above what does it mean when there is the spanner and car light is no limp mode.

    I have had the manifold replaced in June and the swirl flaps work as i can see the rod move whan a m8 presses the accelerator.

    Is this just a fluke - car drives as normal though

    Cheers

    Could it be the service indicator, My dad'd '06 Altea shows a spanner for about 30seconds Then Disappears when it's due for a service.

    Mine does crazy stuff like that. Light on driving fine after about 10 miles went back off. Luckily i have a fault code reader. It showed up a throttle actuator fault.

    Need to get it read to see what yours is!

    Having read the book like an anorak, the light is also used to indicate water in the fuel.

    I had the spanner light on, as mentioned here, it was water in the fuel. There is a drain on the bottom of the fuel filter housing, just unscrew it anti-clockwise and let some water/fuel drain out, nip it back up and drive, see if the light goes out.

    No!

    Car/spanner is the ecu fault light, autobox fault light, and immobiliser fault light.

    Service light is either an oilcan/spanner light, or the word InSP in the odometer display when the key is first turned.

    just a thought but check your brake lights, look closely and see if one is lower than the other, cos what it does if your brake light bulb blows it uses your sidelight as a temporary measure so you still have 2 brake lights.. this happened to mine...
