    Car with Spanner icon illuminates briefly when ignition turned on ?

    Hello All.

    This is probably totally normal & maybe just a case of me not noticing before

    Astra H 55 plate Cdti 150.

    When you 1st turn the ignition on (before Starting) The Car with a Spanner icon illuminates briefly then goes out ...

    Is this normal & the same on other peoples cars ??

    Thanks.

    Completely normal, is just to show the lights working and will light up in case of a fault.

    I have a slightly different problem that I can't get my head around and need help with:

    When I start the engine the eml (car spanner light) stays illuminated. However if I rev the engine over 3000rpm the light will go out and stay out.

    If i don't do this after starting the engine it will stay on. The cars a 53 reg, 1.7cdti and runs fine with no issues.

    Any ideas??
