First time it came on it went to the ford shop, they said it was my ignition switch so ford dealership changed it , the second time it came on took it back and they changed the front wheel bearings. Car was ok for a few weeks and the third time it went in they replaced a melted sensor wire , said they found the problem and guess what? That wrench light (power train malfunction) came on twice but when u turn off the car and turn on again it goes off!!! So crazy they don't know what is really going on with the car , so frustrating
My car has 62000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there - the "wrench light, which allegedly indicates a variety of problems with the drivetrain, is a huge source of frustration on the part of Ford owners such as yourself. It is not well understood, or trained for, by many Ford techs themselves. There is a Ford technical service bulletin (#252290) which addresses this topic exclusively. I would discuss it with your Ford service rep. I would suggest you not make further repairs based on their hunches or second guesses, without a real diagnosis of the underlying problem - based on Check Engine codes or real symptoms. Otherwise, confusion and fear continue. I would recommend getting an unbiased 2nd opinion by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
