I had the wrench pop up after the dealership over serviced my transmission on a 2017 Taurus. It was supposed to be a drain and refill but they pumped in 10.5 quarts, the 1/2 qt. was a flush.

Since returning it and having them to reservice it has it done the same thing? I had my oil changed and about 2 weeks later is when mine did this.

^^^^ Oil changed or tranny fluid changed? If you really mean the ENGINE OIL was changed, please describe the exact issue you are having in detail. The more details we have, the more likely we will be able to help you.

I have had this issue with my 2011 Ford Taurus. But it happens randomly. I could just turn my car on sometimes and it will throw the wrench symbol and I can not go when I press the gas. It has also happened while driving down the road and I can not accelerate so I have to pull over and turn my car off and back on again, which will then cause the check engine light to come on. We have replaced the accelerator pedal and the throttle body. The code that it throws is generic code P2104. Can you please help me with this issue?

Have you had the code cleared in the computer since replacing the parts?
yes I have but also even after replacing the parts it still does the same thing. Like I said the check engine light don’t come on every time, but it still throws the wrench symbol and won’t let me accelerate.

So I believe we found what the issue is, we need to replace the computer. Hubby said when he was messing with it, that was making the car do all kinds of crazy things. Have a new computer on the way and will update once we get it installed and everything. Could be a couple of weeks as the computer computer won’t be here until next week. Praying this is what it is

carcomputerexchange.com we provide them with vin so that it can be programmed to my car when it gets here and don’t have to take it to ford or anything and have them do it. I think we paid a little over $200 for it when autozone wanted $500. Still waiting on it to arrive.
