Wrench symbol comes on


When asking questions, we need specific information PLEASE! It's like asking a friend "I need wood from the hardware shop. Can you go and get some?" What size, shape, type, length?
Usually, if a light comes on a dash, it means that it needs repair. Commodores in Australia (2 door models Imported to America as Chevy's) show a wrench when the next service is due.

While driving tonight a wrench is showing on my dash. Could you tell me what this means? Thank you


Yes it is a "service soon" light. It means something is wrong or up. You should have it checked at the dealer or an auto repair shop. :-) If the mileage is around 50,000 or 100,000 miles, the service light will likely come on. I think all cars do this. I think the dealers or the auto repair place can turn it off.

The indicator light with the little car and wrench on it is on. I want to know what this means?


It means there is a service item on the car that needs attention. A scan will need to be done to show up the specifics.

Just bought my Honda accord 2007 but it did not come with book. When the wrench sign on the dashboard is lit what does that mean. It also shows oil......15% does it need oil change?


The wrench on your dash board means that maintenace is required. if your oil is at 15% it is time for an oil change and the tech that changes your oil will reset the light.

Wrench light is on and odometer shows negative mileage


The negative number means the car should have had it's oil changed that many miles ago. Oil life starts at 100% for new oil & counts down every 10%. At 15% the display will always show, which means it's near time to change the oil.

usersteve83, your oil may have been changed but the timer not reset. Reset the timer as shown...
1. Turn ignition to the "ON" position. (do not start engine)
2. Press SEL/RESET repeatedly until the oil life indicator is displayed.
3. Press & hold the SEL/RESET for about 10 seconds until it blinks then let go of the button.
4. Press the SEL/RESET again for about 5 seconds or until the oil life indicator resets to 100%.

All above are taken from the 2006 Civic EX owner's manual.

What does the orange wrench light mean on an 07 hybrid? it looks like a maintenance light but i have no idea if this is right or what type of maintenance it's suggesting.


The dashboard will show an orange wrench when it comes time for the car to be serviced. The wrench means that the car needs an oil change and the A1 image means that the car needs a tire rotation.
