  • [Corsa D 2006-2014] Car and Spanner Light Issue

    Hi Guys,

    This is my issue as best i can describe it.

    When i go out to the car in the morning i start the ignition and turn the car over. The Car with the spanner warning light stays on the dashboard. I drive for around 30 secs and pull over turning off the ignition. Once i put the ignition back on and turn it over again the warning light disapears but now the car starts and then dies after a couple of seconds. It will continue to do this until i rev the car after starting it and then all is ok. Car drives fine no light and no cutting out. I can then go the rest of the day with the car starting and not having the car and spanner light stay on as long as i dont leave it standing for over 4-5 hours. If i do it will repeat the process. Any idea what could be causing this issue?

    This is the exact same issue without fail every morning.

    It might help if you tell us what year / model / engine it is.

    Best thing in any case is to start by checking the codes - most of them can be checked without need for diagnostic kit. Just look in the tutorial section how to check for fault codes.

      Sorry - Its a 2007 1.7 CTDi. I believe the pedal test stuff is difficult to work out as i have tried this before. I have a OBD II fault code reader but i i think that is more useful for engine management issues

        Well it sounds like an engine management issue to me so read the codes.
