Well, if it comes on, it means you need to get it to a dealer or mechanic in a hurry.

Did you see my post #2. That is what it is for. If it went back off, I would just keep an eye on it. If it comes back on, get it to the dealer. Do you not have a manual?

No manual. I found it on the web, on the ford owner site. I just figured I would post my question while I searched for it. Thanks, Jay

You found a truck on the web? How cool is that.

The wrench light means that a fault has been detected in the electronic throttle system.

It's a Harbor Freight coupon. Take it there for your free flashlight. No purchase required.
