Wrench indicator light

Post by st3v3cx-3 » Thu Mar 09, 2017 9:32 pm

I noticed a small new warning light looking like an open one side spanner lit in yellow below the speedo dial today. According to the manual :-

"Wrench Indicator Light
When the ignition is switched ON, the wrench indicator light is illuminated and then turns off after a few seconds. The wrench indicator light is illuminated when the preset maintenance period arrives. Verify the content and perform maintenance."

I'm assuming mine has lit up as the car is due its annual service by the end of April. Might phone dealer to confirm. Anyone else noticed it?

I can't remember if I saw the wrench light on mine prior to service but You should be able to see if the service is due in Maintenance app.

It is a small light and right at bottom of the display so mostly hidden by the steering wheel. I know the annual service is due by 30th April so it did surprise me a little to be given the warning 7 weeks early.

Yeah, that sounds a bit early.
How many miles have You driven? It also looks at distance (as well as the time period).

I think there is a TSB. Will check when I get chance.

Mine came on on Monday, got my service at end of this month.

Easy enough to clear it in settings by turning off the maintenance advice

The car has done around 5,000 miles so the mileage factor shouldn't be part of the equation.

I doubt if I will bother with rotating the tyres, haven't done so on previous cars.
