I have 2 problems,firstly shortly after I start and drive the vehicle I get the car and spanner symbol lighting up which happens 99% of the time.If I turn the engine off and back on, the light will most of the time not come back on,not sure if this is a serious issue or not.Secondly the loading area lights do not work which is a problem as I could do with being able to see what i'm doing on these dark mornings!Any help would be much appreciated.... thamks

May be routine maintenance symbol ,you can try pressing the trip button ,foot on brake pedal then turn ignition on this should reset it,However if it,s on due to a code in the engine management system then it will require diagnostic,Rear light could be bulb or switch issue.

Vauxhall cars usually say INSP when service due .That is normally engine fault light .As suggested , you will need to get it scanned to see what is triggering light and what codes are shown .If bulbs o.k , check you are getting power to lamps with meter / test lamp . Could check if covered by a seperate fuse .
