Normally this is normall working of the check system .
All icon warning lights come on when ignition is switched on and when engine starts all warning lights should go off.
If any stay on then you have a problem with that system .
If the spanner only light comes on and stays on when the engine is running then you are up for a maintenance time.
Need further assistance with this issue then please get back to me anytime. After rating 5 stars the question will stay open .
