i'm new to the forums, and i think this is the correct subforum for this type of question.
Dont know much about cars at all, bought my 1st car which is an "Astra 2005 model. 1.7 Cdti" around 3 weeks back, just got an enquiry regarding one of the symbols on the dashboard.
when i put they key and turn it before actually starting the car, a few symbols come, the oil symbol, handbrake, battery symbol,along with a symbol of a "car with a spanner", then they all disappear, but sometimes the symbol of the "car with a spanner" blinks on/off, and at that time if i try to start the car it wouldn't start, however, most of the times it disappears along with the regular symbols, n then if i try starting the car it does start.
Is there anything wrong with my car? please help.
apologies if i've dragged the question. just wanted to try and explain the problem.
i'll appreciate your answers.
