Question about 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???

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.

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.

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%.

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.
