Orange spanner light staying on and hesitation when cold
As above, I have a couple of issues that I wondered if anyone could shed any light on? I have a 0.9 TCe Dynamique.
The first is that the amber/orange spanner light came on on Tuesday evening and stayed on. The handbook is a bit alarmist and not very helpful in this situation - 'This lights up when the ignition is switched on and goes out as soon as the engine is started. It may light up in conjunction with other warning lights. You should drive very carefully to an authorised dealer as soon as possible. Failure to follow this recommendation risks damaging your vehicle'
So that's what I did, and they told me (in the most unconvincing manner) that it was just the service warning light - I only have 1300 miles on the clock but my car was pre-reg in at the end of March 15 so it would fit with a 12 month warning.
I also have a hesitation when the engine is cold, particularly on light throttle loads that seems to be getting worse but I've no idea if the 2 items are related. Oh and the throttle pedal seems a bit sticky, again particularly at the end of its travel.
Anyway the car is booked in for just under 2 weeks time for its first service, I just wondered if anyone else has had the light come on or if the hesitation is a general problem with the TCe engine?
