I have a warning light with a spanner and the esc. What does it indicate?

Customer: I can't think of anything else.

Hi..there..

Means you cars ecu has detected a fault..and thus stored fault codes in relation to the fault..so unless you have code reader to see what these codes are? it would be difficult to say for sure what sort of problem you have exactly..but given the symptoms your describing - sounds like the Coil pack giving out.. quite a common issue on them 1.4's.just make sure the coil pack if it is is a proper oem one...but its still driveable to point then it should be fine to a garage..unless you know of good mobile mechanic locally who can come out to it instead...
