I think that the wrench icon has taken the place of the generic "check engine" light in our trucks.

I don't use 4Lo much. But I think on one of my last trucks it seemed to go into 4Lo easier if I swithced it while in Neutral, then reversed a little, then forward. Don't ask me why.

The wrench light indicates an issue with the drive by wire.

Wrench light means Electronic Throttle Control malfunction. It is not a general "check engine light". You need to either scan the code to find out what it is or take it to the dealership.

Yep, it's a check engine light.
