The yellow "wrench" light is the Maintenance Reminder. This light is pre-programmed to come on to alert you when it's due for an Oil and Filter change. After you have the engine oil and filter replaced, the light will need to be reset manually to ensure the light and the actual oil change schedule are in sync. In the meantime... perfectly safe to drive the vehicle. If you found this answer helpful, please help me by leaving a rating using the "stars" at the top of the page or click 'accept'.

Pat, did you want the reset procedure for this light? Just keep in mind, the oil should be replaced at your earliest convenience if you do reset the light.
