gud day.prob with a160 matic has wrench displayed on instrument panel.car is pre owned,no manual or spare key.ride is horrible,and i dont know if all a160 is 5 speed.


All the different lights you get on the dash of any vehicle, have
been there since 1980. That is 31 years. Nothing has changed
since then ,unless you were on another planet

Check for Codes
Diagnose System with OBD Malfunction
Repair system as necessary

My 2006 VW jetta has a symbol of a wrench and it's meaning is not in the manual. What does the wrench symbol mean?


This means that your vehicle requires service. Something is wrong. You can take it to Autozone and they will put it on their diagnostic machine for free. And tell you what is wrong. Usually nothing major. Just needs to be checked out.
PLEASE RATE by checking one of the 4 thumbs ups!
Thanks! Have a GREAT DAY!!!

I have a 2008 corolla. It has an auto light when the car needs an oil change. I need to know how to reset it.


Look in your owners manual and go to the part that explains the different symbols on your dash. Look for that service reminder and it should tell you what page to go to to learn more about that. Somewhere there should be some wording to the effect that "When you have your car serviced by a certified Toyota dealer they will reset it for you. In the event that someone other does your maintenance then this is the procedure to reset......."

Change Oil Warning won't go away.


Depends on model and features. 2009 SEL, with no rear seat entertainment:

Place ignition in "Key On, Engine Off" position, then push gas pedal to floor and release 3 times. Turn ignition off, and it should be reset.

The procedure was in the owners manual in the section about the odometer and related features.
