SOURCE: an icon in the instrument cluster that looks like

I suggest that you get the instructions manual, you will find what the icon indicates there... you can also visit a local dealership and have a few chat with the mechanic. I'm sure they will not charge you for a very basic question.

2007 mercury mountaineer wrench light lit. what is that mean?


Wrench Warning Indicator (Base Instrument Cluster)
The instrument cluster receives the powertrain status from the PCM over the HS-CAN. When a powertrain system concern is detected, the PCM sends the instrument cluster a command signal to illuminate the wrench warning indicator. If the 4WD control module detects a failure with the 4WD drive system, the 4WD control module sends a message to the instrument cluster over the CAN to illuminate the wrench warning indicator. On 4.6L engines, if the transmission control module (TCM) detects a failure with the transmission, the TCM sends a message to the instrument cluster over the CAN to illuminate the wrench warning indicator.

It means a trip to the dealer or some other qualified repair shop .

All my gauges just quit working. car still runs fine. they done this 2 or 3 times but would always start again. this time have not come back on. turn signals and dash lights work just no gauges.


At the moment, your instrument cluster maybe faulty? Due the basic tests, try to be sure. Check for applicable trouble codes relating to instrument cluster--pcm--communication codes. Some of the national brand auto stores in this country may check codes for free, if there are any.
Check voltage and ground circuits for the instrument cluster. The sending units for gages are wired to pcm then the pcm sends serial data to instrument cluster telling instrument cluster what to do with gages. If you want to check gage sending units, that's ok.

If you have a scanner that can communicate with instrument cluster, you can get instrument cluster to do a self-test. The self-test, the instrument cluster will turn warning lamps on and off, sweep gages w/o outside data input. The instrument is considered good, if it passes that test, if not, the instrument cluster is considered faulty.

Is it normal to have a red triangular warning light come on after pressing the start button and then go off as soon as the other lights(car seat, air bag, break etc) go off..


It's normal. It's part of the instrument cluster module doing what's called a "bulb check" on initial start up, and it should go off in under ten seconds, since it does, there is no problem

Warning lights stay on


It sounds like the ignition switch is signaling to the dash (in error) upon startup. It may be the switch itself.

Warning lights is on the red triangle volvo s40 2005 2litter


Sounds like the instrument cluster has gone bad or a bulb in the cluster has burnt out. You will need to remove the cluster and check the bulbs to see if they need to be replaced.
