Check engine light and fault code

I started my Cat C7 engine today to take a road trip and got a check engine light. On my Scan Guage I got these codes.

# - - ID - FM -CNT
< 1 - 70 - 6 -- -0>

Any one know what this means? I shut everything down right then.
Thanks for any help.
Bud

Can you use your cruise control and get that code/codes ?
Probably more answers that way.

I'm kind of new to all of this and don't know how to use the cruise control to check the codes.

I would reset the trouble codes and see it they come back some times you get
codes that just show up once.
The code shows this is a one time thing so far.

Heater should shut off a couple of minutes after you start the engine so no problem
in driving it.
As I said clear the codes and see if it comes back. Do you know how to clear them?

Art , Thanks, I can clear them. I 'll clear them and see what happens. I didn't start it all winter and was going to take it out for a good run to get ready for spring. Maybe it was because it hasn't been started for a while.

Bud,
If you are up to it I would have a look at the ground cable from the engine to the
frame to the chassis battery. Make sure they have clean connections and are tight, the reason is a lot of faults codes and no starts can be traced to bad grounds.
That is one thing the Cat ECM does not like and will drive you nuts until fixed.
