I have a vauxhall corsa 1.3 CDTi. There is a light comming on on the dash which looks like a car with a spanner through it. It makes no difference to the running or economy but is driving me barmy. If I turn the ignition off and on it will clear but comes back on later.

Anyone got any ides as this is a new one on me

warning light is used to show that you either have water in your fuel filter , that there is a glow plug issue the light will come on on start up then go out after a few miniutes or if an auto it is a warning for transmission fault try changing the filter first then you may need to get it checked with some diagnostics
