My Saturn L300 2002 has the wrench service light come and it drives good

You should be able to have an auto parts store check the engine computer for trouble codes. The codes would direct a mechanic as to what to check next.

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.

Lost power steering and brakes while turning, came back on.

You had a check light on the dash

Did you not check for codes that day or the next?

You STOP using ANY Vehicle ,with ANY Lights on the dash,
AFTER the motor is running, UNTIL you know what the codes are

The vehicle should have been at a shop the next day NOT USED

Yellow wrench in mercury mariner hybrid

The Yellow Wrench is what ford calls a MIL Lamp

That technology shouldn't be new to you or what you
do next

OBD2 Systems have been on all vehicles since 1996

All veh are the same

Any dash light you check for codes with a day or so,if
you want to know what the issues might be, then google the codes

I would just go to a repair shop immediately at any check light
being on.

You shurely know that a dealer is Never needed to work on any
vehcile & you also should know they charge more,a good reason
not to be there even with a new a car unless you there for free
warranttee work only

Yes you will pay $100 every time the dash light comes on
These shop have big investment in test equip

Finding the issuse if sometimes the entire job,the fix is not
always a big deal

Very bad advice for a dealer to tell you to continue to drive
a vehicle when they have no idea what is wrong.

You need those codes day one to determine if you should use it

Buy yourself a $60 code reader & google the codes on any
& all your vehicles so you can decide if you should be using it
at all.

2000 saturn brake lights not working

None of the brake lights work , the center high mount lights too ! I can't believe both tail lamp assembly's going bad at the same time ! Wrench light on means codes are stored in the BCM , did your Mechanic check codes .

What Is The Wrench Button For, As Well As The "I" Button, What's The Alarm Sound When I Push The Wrench Button?

It resets the check engine/service light on the dash. Press and hold "wrench" button while turning the ignition to "Start" on AUDI and Mercedes. Fun fact: The Mercedes automoblie was named after the carmaker's Daughter. Not the other way is true with Porsche or Chevy namesakes. Happy Motoring, TechJoel

Service engine light stays on 2000 LS2 V6

The service engine light means that there is a problem of some sort with your car, usually it's not something that would prevent you from driving the car but you do need to take it to a repair shop and have it checked. Also you can go to a local Autozone parts store and they will check the car and tell you what the problem is and what it would take to fix it, and the best part, Autozone won't charge you for this service.

I have just had to replace the transmission in my 2002 Envoy and once the change was made the check 4 wheel drive light (wrench with 4 wheels)is on the dash and wont go away. My mechanic had to disengage...

Apparently during the transmission service work something was disturbed, such as a connector. The mechanic should recheck his work and scan the system for fault codes.
