    Question 3.2 V6 control indicator light

    Hi guys.

    Just wondering if I'm a bit nutty but when I start my car the control indicator light comes on briefly then goes out. Doesn't come on at any other time just when the car is started. Has just been serviced but can't tell for sure if this light came on before or not. (Never noticed it?)

    Anyone help?

    That's perfect, means it's working. If it stayed on that would be a problem, sometimes people pull the bulbs out if it's broken.

    No not the TC indicator light. What was the engine management light is now called a control indicator light.

    Since when?

    Its always been known as the EML - engine management light.

    Anyway, means its got a old stored warning light. They probably did something when servicing it.

    Ours is a 54 Vectra 3.2 GSi and the wonderfully useful manual (not) is calling it this. I was thinking the same thing - that they may not have cleared any faults when they serviced it.

    as long as it does not see another fault and its not lit while driving it will clear itself after about 30 restarts of the car. Don't worry too much about it at the moment
