the spanner light means its time for a service / oil change

you could try to reset this yourself.

on the right hand side of dash is a button

push this button anad turn the ignition on, the word 'service' should appear in the trip recorder display

release button then turn button to the right until '----' appears in the display

release button & turn off ignition and this should reset it
