Wrench light

Asked by Jun 14, 2017 at 03:53 PM about the 2006 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I go over 80mph my wrench symbol light
pops up on my dash. It's happened 3 times now
and there seems to be absolutely nothing wrong
with my car. It drives fine and I can't figure out why
the light pops up. It stays on until I shut the car off
and doesn't come in again until I'm over 80mph.

I believe that is a power train fault warning. Have the trouble codes read to know what is going on.

What exactly does that mean? Lol I tried to go and do it today but they said they couldn't tell me anything cause light isn't on right now


There may be codes to read even if the light is not on.


The light will illuminate as long as a fault is detected. If the fault is not detected at a lower speed, the light goes out, but the fault should be stored in the system. Have someone actually hook up a reader and check for faults stored.
