Best Answer

If you are referring to the Check Engine Light, then the computer has detected a problem with the emissions system.

The emissions system will detect problems between the two oxygen sensors fitted before and after the catylistic converter, on the exhaust. This is a engine type icon.

The icon that shows a car body, with a spanner on it (this is not the service indicator! that is displayed on the LED screen where the milage is displayed, shortly after turning the ignition on), means that there is a problem with the vehicles electrical system. In most cases with Corsa's, the alternator overcharges.

In both cases i recommend either main dealer, or professional help, as both indications can be rectified using diagnosis equipment suitable for that vehicle.
