Hello; The light with the wrench indicates there is a condition pending that if operation continues it may bring on the service soon light. It can only be put out with a scanner. Some auto parts stores can read codes and put the light out and not charge for it.

My 2001 Saturn L200 service light with the wrench keeps coming on. If I drive about 100 miles and park the car when I return to start it that is when the light comes on not while driving. I can not get the...

Service (Wrench) System Check The SERVICE (Wrench) telltale is turned ON by the cluster when it receives a command from the powertrain control module (PCM) or the body control module (BCM). The PCM or BCM will turn the SERVICE (Wrench) telltale ON for all non-emission related diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) that require that a telltale be turned ON, some DTCs do not turn ON a telltale but are stored to aid in diagnosis.
The SERVICE (Wrench) telltale will also be turned ON if the Antilock Brake System (ABS) control module has detected a fault in its own warning indicator system. If the ABS cannot turn ON its own telltale, a message will be sent to the BCM through the Key Word 2000 data bus to turn ON the SERVICE (Wrench) telltale.
The SERVICE (Wrench) telltale will be turned ON by the cluster for 2-3 seconds, when the ignition is turned to RUN, for a visual system check.

You need to have codes checked .

Service with wrench light is but car runs fine

The service light means your cars computer sees a problem, you can take it to just about any local parts store and most will check the codes for you for free and give you an idea of what is going on. by what you are saying it may be an electrical problem.(rough guess with limited info)
