What is solution for wrench light staying on for a 2008 F 250 Diesel Ford truck Lariat model

You have to reset the oil change minder feature. It is done through your instrument cluster. If you have switches on the steering wheel i.e info, menu etc. scroll through until you find oil change reset and follow the prompts. If there are no info switches on the steering wheel the same process is accomplished by using the trip minder reset button on the instrument cluster.

89 Ford E350 Diesel - two problems 1) no power to instrument cluster, 2) diesel will not fire off without starter fluid...but the glow plug solenoid does click and wait light goes off

You should never use starter fluid when the glow plugs are hooked up. It can cause severe engine damage. You probably need to replace all the glow plugs and the glow plug controller.

Instrument panel went dead

Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).

Radio does not work and all the instrument indicators will not re

did you check for fuses , the radio and instrument cluster are tied in for illumination , check all fuses and if that does not work disconnect the radio and see if that is causing a short... they could have shorted out and you may have to replace the instrument cluster but you can get them online very reasonable

The 2002 F-250 PStroke 4x4 had the instument lamps poping the fuse intermittently .
Turned out to be a wire getting pinched btween the emergency brake lever and the release stop .
Had to remove the keft kick panel and there was a yellow wire coming from the lower harness up toward the dash . the wire was pinched /hung up in the emergency brake mechanism . Good Luck
