It could be an Immobilizer fault, if the spanner /car light comes on.
If you have a spare key, try it
A Flashing spanner light normally means immobiliser fault hence the non-start. The spanner light left might just be an indication that it has stored the "wrong transponder" code.
Opel will have to clear this but you might need a CIM as well that is the bit that reads the key to allow it to start.
Try the spare key if you have one
On 1.7 DTi models, a defective solenoid in the pump can cause failure of the ECU due to excessive current draw causing components to burn out. but this *should* cause other fault codes to appear.
I take it from the definition dti that it is a direct turbo injection diesel and if that is correct the hard starting when cold is that the Go-plugs are not working. Check out the fuses and relays and the plugs them selves to see it the element is burnt out.
Not heard of this before,the problem is that you could be looking forever for a fault especially if its electrical as i suspect this may be.Your best bet is to take it to a garage and have it plugged in,you never know it may be a quick fix and not expensive.good luck.
