Question about 2006 Mercury Mariner
Howdy. The yellow wrench that appears in the dashboard, used to go on and off. Now it just stays on, and "service soon" appears. I called the dealer, and he said it will be $150 to troubleshoot, and the problem could be fixed for cheap (under $20) or several hundred dollars. When I asked if I can continue driving the vehicle, w/o worry, I was told no issues. Can anyone provide insight into this issue? Tx. Geo
The Yellow Wrench is what ford calls a MIL Lamp
That technology shouldn't be new to you or what you
OBD2 Systems have been on all vehicles since 1996
All veh are the same
Any dash light you check for codes with a day or so,if
you want to know what the issues might be, then google the codes
I would just go to a repair shop immediately at any check light
You shurely know that a dealer is Never needed to work on any
vehcile & you also should know they charge more,a good reason
not to be there even with a new a car unless you there for free
warranttee work only
Yes you will pay $100 every time the dash light comes on
These shop have big investment in test equip
Finding the issuse if sometimes the entire job,the fix is not
always a big deal
Very bad advice for a dealer to tell you to continue to drive
a vehicle when they have no idea what is wrong.
You need those codes day one to determine if you should use it
Buy yourself a $60 code reader & google the codes on any
& all your vehicles so you can decide if you should be using it

Assuming your Mariner has a V6 and is not a hybrid, 20A FUSE 12 in the battery junction box (BJB) supplies 12 volts to the power point.
