Default Wrench inside outline of car icon on cluster?

Is this an indication that the vehicle wants "scheduled service" since it differs from check engine or any other "error" light? I did the press brake 5 times like you do to clear the oil change indicator and restarted the engine, this light did not come back on.

What exactly does it mean? The manual says take in for service because it MAY have a problem? hmm

i'm pretty sure you press the accelerator down 5 times, not the brake to clear the oil service light.

I believe a yellow wrench = oil change indicator.

The manual identifies this as "service vehicle soon" and appears to be a BCM code? What things could cause this to trip?

I'm talking the wrench in the outline of a car in the upper left of the cluster, not the oil/wrench in the lower right.

Advance and the like cannot read the codes with an off the shelf reader. I had to go to the dealer. If its running OK I'd guess its one of the O2 sensors. How many miles? Is your fuel mileage suffering?

Only way to know for sure is to take it and have the codes read...

No, the oxygen sensor codes would set a Service Engine Soon lamp (outline of an engine). This is the Service Wrench lamp, and as stated, is most likely caused by a code in the BCM that will require a Tech2 or equivalent.

And btw, only 3 pumps of the accelerator pedal to reset the oil life monitor

Posted in general for more exposure, scanned today with techII... P0873, 4th gear pressure switch on top of tranny, blue/yellow 1 pin wire.

Replacing tommorow, very very common to fail in the honda/acura world and my local saturn dealer stocks them "fail often"

someone should update the FAQ with this one (if there is a FAQ?)

When you say to press the accelerator 5 times, is that while it it running?

No. Ignition on.

Another super common cause for the service light is if the mil lamp is burnt out.
