Spanner light
« on: 20 May 2023, 08:38:59 »

3.2

Just wondering should the spanner light stay on when ignition is on but engine not started?

I noticed this morning when I had ignition on for 12v tyre pump that spanner light was flashing. I do have a key for my 2.6 on the key chain so wondered if it was interfering with the pick up or something. I took that key off the key chain and it stopped the flashing light but the light remained solid on with ignition.

Thanks

Tried the pedal trick to read the codes, got P0420 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1), which I know about, and then another code that seems to be P1612 Immobiliser No Or Wrong Signal Immobiliser. Could that have been the other key causing that?

This is the 2nd code read out:

If the spanner doesn't flash when ignition is turned on, ignore the immobiliser one :)

Both codes should clear with a generic OBDII or EOBD code reader, though I suspect the P0420 will soon return until you move the sensors.

Spanner light not flashing so ok the now. Codes still coming up so will try and clear them when I get back to base. Checked chip in keys look fixed in place ok. That P0420 always comes up.
