Question about Cars & Trucks
These lights come on intermittantly with no noticeable change in driving. What's going on?
If they all come on at the same time, chances are its a problem the engine computer has found. The wrench is a warning light for the engine and transmission, the ABS and traction control involve both the drivetrain as well as the brakes. So if a problem pops up in one system the computer knocks out the others too.
Have the main computer checked for trouble codes and go from there.

I have a 2005 Eddie Bauer edition Explorer and I just went throught this problem last week. I first want to say I know less about cars than the average guy so I took it to a "family mechanic" he said I had a bad wheel bearing on the front passenger side. I went to Autozone and got the Duralast wheel bearing hub assembly w/ABS sensor and some new brake pads since I was taking the wheels off anyway. Bought a Haynes manual and used a friends garage and changed the hub assembly in a couple hours and the problem is fixed. So the thing I learned is don't start throwing expensive parts at it until you can get an "HONEST" diagnosis of the issue. Hope this helps you and others
