Question about 2005 Ford Five Hundred

1 Answer

Ford 2005 Five Hundred 5 warning lights come on only after going over 55 miles on freeway (symbols for engine, wrench, car with 2 skids marks, ABS, brake symbol with P and I in a circle). After car is turned off, all warning symbols disappear except for engine symbol. After car is turned off a 2nd time, all warning symbols disappear. If I drive on streets below 50 mph, car is fine but brake sometimes goes down a little . This is puzzling me since new brakes were put on front 6 months ago and new battery was put in 2 months ago. All problems occurred after a blowout on a rear tire on freeway and the next day Costco put new tire on car and as I was driving back home, all these warning lights came on as I accelerated on freeway. Also when warning symbols come on, the speedometer goes to zero and the mileage counter on car goes blank. Car was fine until new tire was put on. I went to AutoZone and they said code U0145 came up on their diagnostic device.

Replace the sensor throwing up the code and all the problems will probably go . At least that is where to start to fix the faults.

SOURCE: Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.

Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Taurus, 90K, used car, engines shakes, ABS goes on

Are you getting any codes from the Check Engine Light? This sounds like it could have something to do with a sensor. Check your air filter and make sure it's clean. The tach on my 1999 doesn't really work, but it hasn't coincided with other driveability problems. The engine doesn't change in it's RPM's, the tachometer just stops working. Have your charging system checked. The shaking might be coming from bad fuel pump operation, clogged fuel filter, or dirty fuel injectors. Try putting an additive into your gastank to clean the injectors (a bottle of Seafoam is great for this). Try calling your local Autozone and see if they do free trouble code scanning. This might help lead you in a better direction.

I have a 2005 Ford Five Hundred and the ''wrench'' warning light came on. It is a AWD. What does it mean and what could the probable cause be?


It simply means that its time for routing service and maintenance on your car. This will normally be reset when you take it in for an oil change. 1. Ford has issued a Special Service Message (SSM), stating that the owner's manual procedure is incorrect, and giving a revised procedure. The following is the text of the SSM:

18562 2005 FREESTYLE/FIVE HUNDRED/MONTEGO - OIL LIFE RESET PROCEDURE
THE 2005 FREESTYLE, FIVE HUNDRED, AND MONTEGO VEHICLE OWNER'S GUIDE OIL LIFE RESET PROCEDURE IS INCORRECT. TO RESET OIL LIFE ON VEHICLES WITHOUT MESSAGE CENTER, USE THE TRIP/RESET BUTTON TO TOGGLE THE ODOMETER DISPLAY TO 'OIL LIFE XX%'. THEN PRESS AND HOLD THE BUTTON FOR 10 SECONDS TO RESET TO 100%. THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WILL BEEP WHEN THE OIL LIFE IS RESET.
FOR VEHICLES WITH A MESSAGE CENTER, PRESS 'SETUP' TO DISPLAY 'PRESS RESET FOR SYS CHECK'. PRESS AND RELEASE 'RESET' TO START SYSTEM CHECK. WHILE 'OIL LIFE XX%' IS DISPLAYED, PRESS AND HOLD 'RESET' UNTIL 'IF NEW OIL HOLD RESET' IS DISPLAYED, THEN RELEASE. PRESS AND HOLD 'RESET' AGAIN UNTIL 'OIL LIFE SET TO 100%' IS DISPLAYED. THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WILL BEEP WHEN THE OIL LIFE IS RESET.
EFFECTIVE DATE: 04/20/2005

Hello I have a 2006 Ford Five Hundred, a wrench looking symbol has popped on when I am driving up hill. And when coming back down my RPM's have gone crazy and I have stopped the car, turned it off and when...


You have a transmission control unit problem unfortunately and I'll warn you - it's not cheap. Your description describes it to a "T". It will reset itself to "LIMP" mode (short distance drivability) and will only reset so many times. You need to take to Ford and have trans control unit replaced. (PS bring your wallet - sorry)

I have a 2006 ford five hundred; The "wrench" symbol illuminated on dash, car tried to accelerate then shut off. What could be the problem?


the 'wrench' symbol is a service light or possibly an engine managment symbol. if the car 'kinda' drive of a fashion then its computer has dropped onto 'limp home' mode and ur car needs to be put onto a diagnostic fault finder at a garage.

You need to have the transmission serviced. The wrench indicates that the fluid in your transmission is out of spec or you have an out of spec pressure condition.
