Check your owners manual and under maintenance....look for reset precedures, its should be there as each manufacturer has different steps to be used.

SOURCE: On the dash of a holden cruze (2002 Model) there

This is the vehicle's check engine light, and it means that the on-board diagnostic computer has detected a fault and stored a service code. Your Holden dealer, any reputable mechanic, and many auto parts stores can retrieve the code and tell you what part or system requires service.

it means its due for service. If u wanna get rid of it without servicing the vehicle then as you start the car simultaneously push the ODOMETER reset button on the dash and it will wipe it. This will however just delay the point your car needs servicing.

Have a 2014 renault Cleo, service due came up and a spanner light. How much further can I drive it as I've heard that they can stop altogether out of the blue is that true thanks Jeanette

Hi. Sorry but you have been misinformed. The "Service Due" message and the "Spanner Light". Are two related warnings that service is due. They will not go away until the needed service is performed. Upon completion, the dealership or repair facility will reset the warning system until the next service is due. The Spanner light is a reminder that service is needed now. If you ignore the warning service goes more over due, resulting in engine damage. There is another light called an Engine Warning Light. This lamp is an amber symbol of an engine. It is this light that may go out on its own if the ECU detects no failure.

My Nissan Micra cranks but doesn't start and it shows a spanner on the warning screen. What's wrong?

The spanner symbol indicates a service is due!

as for the car not starting......get the codes read from the OBD connection and check the fault codes, this will indicate where the issue is.

I have a spanner symbol on my 407. what does this mean??

You need to carry out the periodical car service due (e.g. engine oil & filter, air filter, fuel filter, cabin air filter). The "service" spanner symbol "reset" button is placed on the lower right corner of the dashboard. See picture below:

Then you should reset the "service" spanner symbol by pressing on the "reset" button on dashboard, when ignition key is in OFF position. Hold the button pressed and turn ignition key in ON position. Hold the button pressed and see on the dashboard successive numbers will appear: "10", "9", "8", ... , "1", "0". Then release the button and switch OFF the ignition key. The "service" spanner symbol followed by "20000 km" (or "30000 km" depending of the engine type), will appear for few seconds after turning ignition key in ON position, and will dissapear after engine starting. The car service due was reseted.

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

My service engine light just came on and i'm wondering what that might mean and what i need to do about it now.

service due light or engine management light??
service light should be a spanner symbol engine light should be amber -yellow colour and looks like a gearbox.
service light.check if your vehicle is due a service if so book it in with your main dealer for a service and they will reset the warning indicator ,or if you know someone local who maintains your car they can reset the service light by holding in the reset trip button whilst turning ignition to pre start position on the display it should count down from ten -0 then reset itself and the light should go out.
management light
this can only be looked at by a suzuki main dealer where they have the correct diagnostic equipment .
dont worry to much if the car feels and drives ok its probably picked up a small fault in the ecu and will be cleared with the diagnostic check .
