It may be that your TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) is bad or dirty. Try cleaning it, and if that doesn't work, then replace it. It goes for about $45, but if you take it to the stealership they'll run you over $200.
I had the same problem and got it fixed. Takes a couple of minutes.

This is the "limp mode" light. The car will drag severely and if a standard, you will have rough shifts. You need to get this checked out by a dealer because your V8 engine is now running on 6 cylinders to be safe. Mine did this because of an aftermarket cold air intake without a tune. Hope this helps

No communication from computer to 4wheel drive changed push button on dash still no lights on

Some vehicles have a module for the 4x4 under the passenger side dash. Most likely it is the motor on the transfer case that is bad. Year, make, and model?

My dash lights shut off when I turn the headlights on..why?

Looks like the light switch assembly is malfunctioning.
Most of the cars today uses plastic in the switches, plastic that acts as cams to push the metal contactor in the switch might have melted down and failed to push the contacts in the parklight mode.
Replace that switch and tell us what happened.
Hope that helps!

A light came on in the dashboard in the form of a wrench, what does it mean? While the light was on the car would not go any faster than 20MPH.

get it to a mechanic asap
that is a check engine light-if your vehicle is experiencing these problems while the light is on that could mean a potential breakdown that could leave you stranded

Just bought my Honda accord 2007 but it did not come with book. When the wrench sign on the dashboard is lit what does that mean. It also shows oil......15% does it need oil change?

The wrench on your dash board means that maintenace is required. if your oil is at 15% it is time for an oil change and the tech that changes your oil will reset the light.

Have a 2002 Tribute (purchased new). Just bought gas, car idles rough...engine check light is lit (not blinking). Is this a definite sign of water in gas? Didn't use car for two days since snowstorm in our...

Not necessarily so, It may be the timing "Chain" it may also be a fuel system problem, or ignition system.

If the Check engine light is lit then I would Highly suggest checking what the issue is. Especially if the vehicle is acting in an odd way. you can get this done free at Autozone stores if the individual store offers it..
