Hello and welcome to JA....the little wrench light is indicating that the system has detected a fault....most likely in the electronic throttle body system, which will cause the cruise control to be unable to be controlled by the PCM....can you get to an advanced auto, pep boys, or auto zone store? They will scan your vehicle for free, and you can tell me what warning code(s) are stored in the system. This will make it easier for me to assist you in determining what is wrong with your vehicle.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
