Asked by Amanda Nov 01, 2018 at 01:52 AM about the 2018 Ford Fusion S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2018 Ford Fusion with 6,500 miles and I had the
wrench light came on with a message saying see manual...
I'm worried to drive it not knowing what's wrong with it, I
barely got this car about 5 months ago and theres no other
problems than this light... trying to get this car to the dealer
but I have to get approved to ask off from work

The owner's manual is going to tell you that the wrench light is simply a "check engine" light meaning there is a fault code stored by the car's onboard computer. It is okay to drive it until you can set up an appointment for any Ford dealer to scan the car for fault codes and fix it under warranty. On a new car, many dealers are willing to send someone to your work or home to swap cars with you so they can work on it. They call it a courtesy car, and you can drive it while they do oil changes and repairs on your new car. Don't miss work.

yeah I checked the manual and then it redirected me to the service manual, at the end of it I went to Fords website and what Im coming up is powertrain sign. I do have an appointment scheduled for this Saturday for a basic maintenance check up so I was trying to figure out if I should just wait till my appt. or just call and see what I need to do and if I need to take it immediately. my thing is I work far, about 28 miles away from my house and that's the only thing that worries me as far if it's safe to drive it all the way to work and back home for two days.

This is a good question for the Ford dealer. Following his instructions will assure you the warranty will be honored if anything should happen. I really think it would be okay to drive but you have to hear that from them to protect your warranty.

Did anyone get any answers from the dealership on this wrench symbol being shown mine's at the dealership now they say there's not even a code to read after displaying playing this... that doesn't make sense to me as a light comes on on your dash there is a code to be read am I not right.?
