Hi All,
The car/spanner light has started coming on this week everytime i start the car. After about 5 mins of driving it goes off. Its never done this before and so regulary. This morning before I started the car i did the pedal test, and ECN came up in the dash but there was no code and no flashes. The car/spanner light came on with the ignition lights and then went off. I started the car and then the light came back. So i swtiched off and tried again but no code. Drove to work with the light on and when I got to work, i turned off and did the pedal test again but still no codes!

Am i doing something wrong?

Thanks

I expect you have one or more glow plugs gone.

Code P0380 if it decided to show up on the pedal test.

Ending 8 is glow plugs. I have this, but not got round to doing it. Been like it 12 months now.

I guess i should replace all the glow plugs?

The other error is vehicle speed sensor malfunction, but i guess theres no way i could test which one it is? Whats the best way to diagnose this further?

Most 1.7s seem to have P0500, I would think the glow plug code is your problem and I'd ignore the speed sensor one.

Right, ive got the spanner/car light coming up on the dash...
Could it be down to fitting new bulbs?

If its the glow plugs it will disappear after driving a bit.
