Customer Question
I have a 2010...

I have a 2010 explorer and I get intermitent wrench lite on cluster. You cannot get any codes to come up. Any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

I'ts a warning lite shaped like a wrench

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Explorer yourself? What have you tried so far?

Only because no one seems to be able to pull any codes

So besides the wrench light on, the problem is no scan tool can get codes?

Hello, my name is***** will be helping you out! I have over thirteen year of experience in the automotive industry for numerous different makes & models. I enjoy doing what I do, it is my life.

The most common issue is a throttle body issue. That is almost always the reason the wrench light comes on. If the wrench light comes on along with abs and traction, then you have a speed sensor issue.

The most common repair is cleaning the throttle body and perform a throttle relearn.

Throttle body can still be an intermittent failure internal.

its possible its just slightly dirty causing wrench light to come on.

Does anything out of the ordinary occur when the wrench light comes on?
