Need to know what a symbol on my dash means...

Asked by Jul 30, 2012 at 04:49 PM about the 2007 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sometimes when I turn on my vehicle a little symbol flashes at me a couple of times before the mileage pops up. The symbol looks like a little wrench but could be something different. I have searched through my manual and haven't been able to locate what the symbol could mean? What is this symbol and is there a safe, easy way to look these sort of questions up online?

It means they want you to have the engine serviced. Typically it means that there is an engine diagnostic code waiting to be read. VW's Check engine light. You can borrow, rent or buy a code scanner at most auto parts retailers, it depends on the retailer, but Auto Zone often lets you borrow them. Post the code after you have it and we can help your further.
