Question about 2005 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

2005 Ford Expedition

I have the same problem with my car - wrench icon lights up and car loses power. It has happened about 4 or 5 times - luckily I have always been able to pull over and restart the car. I frequently use the interstate with my two young daughters in the car. This is a disaster waiting to happen. . . . I have had the car in to my mechanic twice. Computer check shows no problem. He says the computer resets itself when the car starts back up. I am wondering if anyone has actually replaced the throttle body and whether that corrects the problem. I have only had the car for four years - it has 60,000 miles on it. This should not be happening, and Ford should issue a recall. Has Ford forgotten the Explorer/Good Year Tire fiasco a few years ago???

SOURCE: Ford 2003 Expedition starts then shuts down

The only idea I hbave is for you to buy a OBD II sensor code reader. Know half the time the codes are generic, BUT also if you go buy a Advance auto they will read the code for you for free. And that code is the correct answer to your problem. Just make sure if your truck loses the code when you cut it off, that you don't cut it off when you get to advance auto.

SOURCE: my 2005 ford expedition i was stopped at a light

The wrench symbol stands for the electronic throttle control. This was a problem for me as well with my 05 Expedition. You have to take it in to the dealer and have them fix it. This will continue happening if you dont. I called Ford directly about this and they told me enough people have to call and let them know about this problem in order for them to issue a recall. The repairs cost me $750. But I had no choice but to have it fixed. Call Ford 18003923673 and let them know. There are alot of other people with the same problem and they should be responsible and fix it. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2007 ford 500 oil warning light comes on and just

When they changed the oil they did not reset the light. The car needs to be told when the oil is changed.

when the warning comes on press the setup button. it should say press reset if new. Press the reset button. It should say if new oil hold reset. Press and hold the reset button until the display changes to oil life set to 100%.

SOURCE: Check electronic throttle control

We have been experiencing same faults on a 2005 Expedition,with engine stopping and the message "Check electronic throttle". Ifirst went to AutoZone and they read the codes. They suggested replacing thethrottle sensor, which we did, but car stopped again. We had to replace thebattery in a month and this is the fix. The battery was almost 6 years old andwhen you first start your engine, it sucks too much load and gives these faultsto the computer. It never stopped since then (3 mo already). Sometimes we useto get the message 3 times a day.

The tool light comes on after traveling


The dealer should be able to read the trouble code.

This can occur with the TCM (Transmission Control Module) and/or ECU program. This may require either a re-flash or a program download to the ECU. The ECU program is not a warranty item, but is typically in the $75 to $100 range.

However there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) for the “wrench light”.

TSB 05-14-4

This article supersedes TSB 05-09-15 to update the Issue and Dealer Coding.

FORD:
2003-2005 Thunderbird
2005 Crown Victoria, Mustang
2004-2005 Explorer, F-150
2005 E-Series, Expedition, F-Super Duty
LINCOLN:
2003-2005 LS
005 Town Car, Navigator
MERCURY:
2005 Grand Marquis
2004-2005 Mountaineer

ISSUE:
Some vehicles built 11/29/2004 and prior may exhibit the wrench light on with both P2106 and P2135 diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs).

ACTION:
Replace the throttle position sensor (TPS) following the instruction sheet included in the TPS service kit. Reprogram the powertrain control module (PCM) to the latest calibration using WDS release B36.11 and higher, or B37.2 and higher. This new calibration is not included in the B37 CD. Calibration files are also available at www.motorcraft.com

I hope this helps!

the wrench symbol stands for the electronic throttle control. If you dont get this fixed it will keep happening. I know from experience with my 05 Expedition. Take it back to the dealer and let them know. I also recommend you call Ford directly @ 18003923673. I called them but they say enough people have to call and let them know of this problem in order for them to issue a recall. I had to pay to get this fixed and it cost me $750. Unfortunately you have to get this fixed because it will continue to happen.

"wrench" light came on and accelerator stop working in traffic


crunk it up ,that's good english . Cranked it up How many miles on the vehicle ! The wrench light is a warning light for the transmission or the electronic throttle control .All new vehicle's have electronic throttle control , there are position sensor's in the APP an in the throttle body an they ware out . It's your responsibility to keep it maintained . Not just to jiffy lube !To the Dealer to have diagnostic's run on the electronics. Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor vs. Throttle Position Sensor
