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!

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.

My orange light comes on


that is no good. I bet your flux capacitor is shot. If you can jump time then I'm wrong, but I have no doubt that your car can't time travel so replace the capacitor and the light will turn off. OR put a little piece of duct tape over the light and ignore it.

How do I turn-off my Maint. Need light after I change my oil on my 06 Toyota Tundra?


I get many calls a week for this procedure...
This is really easy! Follow these directions:

Turn the key ON

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "ODO" and the total mileage traveled. If it is on "Trip A" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "ODO", and the total miles traveled.

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it in.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON

Observe the Odometer display. The total mileage traveled will disappear, and you will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, the total mileage traveled will redisplay.

Release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change2.gif.

Hope this helps!

Maintenace light


This may sound difficult, but it is really simple; the reset takes 30 seconds; here you go:

Get in the car.
Turn the key ON (do not start it)
Observe the odometer. Is it on ODO (total mileage driven?
If not, depress the reset stick by the speedometer from trip a or
trip b until ODO is shown, and the total mileage traveled is displayed.
Turn the key OFF
Press and HOLD the reset stick on the instrument panel (trip a/trip b button), and HOLD it until advised to release it.
Turn the key ON (do NOT start the engine)
Observe the odometer: You will see 5 dashes, 4 dashes, 3 dashes, 2 dashes, and the 1 dash, followed by 5 zeros. The total mileage you started with will be redisplayed.
You may now release the reset stick.
Start the engine, the maint light will be reset.
What procedure does: It adds 5,000 miles to your odometer, and the light will come back on in 5 K miles.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance to you would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for choosing FixYa!
