The wrench light is NOT the check engine light! It is a failsafe warning light and usually when it comes on there is a problem with the "fly by wire" throttle. The wrench light will not be caused by leaving the gas cap loose. You could try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes then reconnecting. If this is no help you have no other choice but to take it in for service.

I am a fellow Mustang owner, 2008 Bullitt Mustang.

Good Luck

That is your check engine light. go to any auto parts store and they will help you scan it free of charge. Or you can take it to Ford and they will charge you $100. ON a car that new, you probably didnt get your gas cap on good. Did you just fill up with gas?

Green wrench symbol on my dash.


It is a service check. It means something is wrong and needs to be checked. You need to take it to a dealer or to a auto part store to have a free module check to see if it finds anything. What you do after that is up to you. I would take to get it fixed.

the wrench light means there is-or-was a problem with the elctronic throttle control.
the is no mechanical throttle cable on this engine, it is "fly by wire" so to speak.
ussually when this happens, the computer will not allow anything over idle until the next key cycle and if it sees the problem again, it will only allow idle.
a lot of times this is a throttle position sensor concern or even the thottle actuator itself.
make sure the air filter and housing is claen and secure, installed properly.
you can try to spray some choke cleaner in the thyottle body itself and possibly clean some carbon buts thats probably not it.
most likely you will need a new throttle body assembly..... it comes with a new throttle position sensor on it. good luck

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.

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.

I have a 2005 Ford Five Hundred and the ''wrench'' warning light came on. It is NOT a AWD. What does it mean and what could the probable cause be?


You need to have the transmission serviced. The wrench indicates that the fluid in your transmission is out of spec or you have an out of spec pressure condition.
