it means the car is ready for a service/ My vectra displays a oil can and spanner when a service is due, if you cannot afford a survive do the following:

place keys in ignition but don't turn on, press the button that zeros the miles on the dash and hold it in, place foot on brake and also hold it down, turn ignition on but do not start engine, count to five and release button and pedal, turn ignition off then on again and the service light should havd gone out.

When i get a spanner and car come up it says there is an electrical fault.

The service engine light (spanner) is indicating that the computer has detected a "fault". Use an engine diagnostic scanner to find out what the computer has detected. My guess is, if you repair whatever the computer has detected, the problem will go away.
