Billy :

Hello,

Billy :

The spanner inside vehicle warning light means that there is an error detected in your immobilizer system.

Billy :

So it is the immobilizer (antitheft) warning light.

Billy :

If the engine will start, then the problem is secondary.......

Billy :

And it most probably is an erratic fault caused by a freeze in the electronics.

Billy :

If the engine will start, then the problem is secondary.......

Billy :

And in that case, you may remove the battery cable for a minute, to reset the system and erase the fault.......

Billy :

If, however, the warning light goes back on, then you are advised to have the car scanned, to retrieve the fault codes and take it from there......
