You are watching: 2008 ford escape wrench light on dash


I have a 2008 escape xlt 4cyl 4x4. Today the wrench light came on (no check engine light) and also it started shifting imeffectively. It seems to rev high and also not shift once it have to. Vehicle idles normal. I ran the codes and had actually no codes show up.any type of principle what might cause this?
The Wrench is a fault in the Throttle control/power train. I never functioned on a 2008, execute they have actually throttle by wire? It might need a modern code scanner. I ran right into this problem over the years I essential to buy a more recent scanner also though the auto is still OBD2 because the computer adjusted.

I got a far better reader from someone at work this day. One that reads the CAN codes. Still no codes display up. Drove it aget tonight and also concern seems to be it doesn"t desire to shift from first to second. I am guessing it is in the transmission.

The "Wrench" light is not a Check engine light.The examine engine light comes on to show an OBD 2 concern.Many generic OBD scanners only review faults regarded the inspect engine light.the Wrench light is separate from the examine engine light.OBD codes are PXXXX codesThe wrench code is either a UXXXX (Network) or a BXXXX (Body) code which is commonly not check out by a generic OBD scanner.You kinda need a Ford Specific scanner that will certainly review all the CMDTC"sSorry

The transmission will certainly not store codes. If you de-power, the codes go amethod.The P1--- codes are proprietary additions to the OBD-II spec, I believe.If you get a reader that have the right to check out the "CAN" bus, I think you will acquire all codes that are arisen & reported.tom
I had the wrench light on and also it was the throttlebody. I reinserted it and also the light hasn"t came back. When the light comes on it deserve to go into limp mode and also you shed power. Not extremely safe. Not sure of the 2008 yet Ford sent a respeak to to upday the PCM on the 2010 so it will not go into the limp made and extfinished the warranty out. It must of been a recall bereason it is a safety and security worry.
Upday. My mechanic sassist it needs to go to a trans shop. Got word this particular day develop the trans shop that it has actually a damaged band and also will certainly not go into second or fourth. $900 to replace band also or $3100 to replace transmission. Any concept on life of trans after band also replacement?
