My husband took it in. I know they ran a diagnostic. Everything came back fine. They flushed it hoping that was what was needed. BUT we hooked up the trailer. at 65 mph after 10 minutes the light came on. We stopped. Waited 3 miinutes started up, no light, but 5 minutes later on again.
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago
What did they flush, cooling system?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The bill states auto flush 12.0 ATF lube guard 1 atf additive What code?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The dash shows a 'wrench' shape.
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago
Whenever the wrench light comes on, a code is set in the computer, do you have this code?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
How do I get that code?
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago
It has to be retrieved with a scan tool.
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago
The dealer should have a copy of the code.
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Okay. So that means the dealership has to scan for the code.
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago
I would assume they already have it since they sold you a transmission flush. I would call them and ask them for the code(s).

Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago
When the wrench light comes on there are quite a few possibilities, that is why I want the code so I can help narrow down to the concern.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The scan came back with nothing wrong.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I just called the place where the diagnostic was run to ask if a code showed up. I have to call back tomorrow morning at 8 for the manager who did it.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Once I have the code I can connect back with this website? correct?
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago
Yes, once you get the code I can give you a more definitive answer, just reply to this question and the system will let me know when I get back online, I am online at nights.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I will not get it until tomorrow morning. So I will check back then.
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago
Ok sounds good, thanks Scott

I called the service this morning that did the diagnostic. There was no code that showed up. They ran 3 different test and all came back fine with no codes.
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago
Was this a Ford dealer?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago
If the wrench light came on there would be a code set, I suspect they didn't note or write down the code since there is no record. Since the wrench light came on while towing and they flushed the transmission, I suspect maybe the transmission fluid is getting too hot? Or there could be a TFT transmission fluid temperature sensor that is reading out of range.

I would first check the radiator fins for dirt or debris, look down in between the radiator and the coolers and see if there is a bunch of debris restrcting the airflow across the radiator. Let me know what you see, thanks Scott

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
