The wrench symbol is the same as "check engine" Your truck is throwing a code that something is wrong. Get a code reader hooked up to your OBDII port to find out what is going on.

I think the engine symbol is more closely related to a check engine light. Whereas the wrench symbol indicates problems with the electronic throttle control. In either case you should check the codes to determine the problem.

could be that it is the EOT/ECT out of range if you have the recent flash. Had that show on mine and thats what it ended up being. And I confirmed with a code read and also running it and watching the point where it came on while observing the two temps get past the 15 degree limit. Now Im setting myself up to replace the coolers.

There is some info in TSB 09-24-3 regarding problems that cause the wrench light to illuminate.

What were you doing??????

Here is what I have seen. High humidity and outside temps in the 80's, full egr delete and tunes from Elite or SCT. Cruising at a steady speed of 70 for about 25 miles and A/C on high. Wrench light comes on, 22 degree spread of eot/ect. AC off it doesnt seem to come on. Towing it comes on within 20 miles unless I turn A/C off. Put egr valve back in and NOW the engine cooling fan comes on and the wrench light seems to stay off. fyi

You have just hit the nail on the head !!!! I was cruising down the highway on a hot day with ac on. The only thing i have had the EGR valve disconected for the last 3/4 months. I have pluged it back in now. I have instaled an Edge Juice with Attitude which i leave on #1 Mileage. I havnt had the light come back on yet but also i havnt been down the highway. But now its not wanting to start very well it fires but wont start straight away. I have just changed the oil and for the first time put a wicks filter the one with the lid on the filter, Im hoping its that. I am going to get a MC one and put it in. Fingures crossed.
Thanks Ben

1. Cheazit has found that eliminating the egr valve screws up the cooling fan protocal.
2. Edge Juice and the 6.0/5R110 don't get along too well over the long haul.

I have heard about the Edge but i thought if i kept it at the mileage setting it would be fine... If not tell me and i will remove it because it realy doesnt make that much difference.

hey matty if you find out anything else before me on this let me know please. Its been rather hot and humid here and after not hearing mine come on for over a week when I figured it should at least once with the ac on I went diggin for the reason.
If I have time Im going to do somemore looking as to the effect when there is a no flow code.

bodger I would check charging system voltage and ficm voltage. either of those will also turn on the wrench light and also make hard starts.
