    Light on dash

    When I was having the cutting out problem with my car the other week, I sometimes had the orange light on the dash come on (car with spanner) I was told buy a vauxhall mechanic this is the ECU light, but in the vauxhall booklet it says its the immobiliser light. Who is right (I thought the other orange light was the ECU light)

    the orange light with the spanner is indeed the ecu light. I lights up when the ecu picks up a fault with the engine. Take it to vauxhall and they can plug in Tech2 and tell you what the problem is..

    Right... P145 of owners handbook.......

    The light in the shape of an engine lump is when you have a fault with the emission system...

    The light in the shape of a car with a spanner going through it is a fault in the vehicle's electrics...
