I have a 2012 Escape 4cyl AWD. Check your owners manual. The wrench light on the lower left of the dash panel indicates a problem with the Electronic throttle system. Mine turns on especially when it is cold and after it has been idling for awhile. The car goes into some sort of default mode. It runs, but not very well. High revs and weird transmission shifts. I had a similar problem with a 2011 Dodge Avenger and it was the throttle body. If I shut it off, I can immediately restart, and the light is off, and it runs fine. This has been going on for over 7 months. I plan to change the throttle body...someday. I already bought one:
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.
Your car only has one bank, so this code applies for the entire engine. I'll provide a link that gives a good breakdown of what P0170 means, possible causes, and possible corrections. P0170 Fuel Trim Malfunction Bank 1
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.
