Needs to be plugged in to a diagnostic code reader. It is telling you that the engine has recieved a signal it is unhappy with. the trouble code will tell you where abouts the problem is.

Why does check engine light blink when I accelerate?


Hi Ced ,
The malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) is located in the instrument panel cluster. The MIL will display as either SERVICE ENGINE SOON or one of the following symbols when commanded ON:
Check engine ! The MIL indicates that an emissions related fault has occurred and vehicle service is required.
The following is a list of the modes of operation for the MIL:
?€¢
The MIL illuminates when the ignition is turned ON, with the engine OFF. This is a bulb test to ensure the MIL is able to illuminate.


?€¢
The MIL turns OFF after the engine is started if a diagnostic fault is not present.


?€¢
The MIL remains illuminated after the engine is started if the control module detects a fault. A diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is stored any time the control module illuminates the MIL due to an emissions related fault. The MIL turns OFF after three consecutive ignition cycles in which a Test Passed has been reported for the diagnostic test that originally caused the MIL to illuminate.


?€¢
The MIL flashes if the control module detects a misfire condition which could damage the catalytic converter.


?€¢
When the MIL is illuminated and the engine stalls, the MIL will remain illuminated as long as the ignition is ON.


?€¢
When the MIL is not illuminated and the engine stalls, the MIL will not illuminate until the ignition is cycled OFF and then ON.

You have a MIL Lamp On, have you not checked for
codes & googled them, to see the system with a possible
fault

I suggest you google OBD2 Systems, to get an understanding
of what they are & how to diagnose codes & other issues

The wrench light is on on my 2008 ford focus what does this mean?


I assume you have no owners manual or never read it.

The wrench is a MIL Lamp--- a Malfunction Indicator Lamp
It tells you that something like a sensor or other issues,is out of range,as far as the PCM (Computer) sees it. When ever you get a check light,mil light,trac,abs ,etc,you go to a repair shop fairly soon,like a couple of days or so, and have the issues checked out. This will happen a couple times a year ,on most of todays vehicles,so get used to it,and expect to pay a diagnostic fee, plus repair
