Wrench Icon and transmission gear display

I was on a road trip yesterday and the Amber wrench icon came on while driving at 70MPH. Message said check manual. No problems noted with engine or transmission. Pulled over. Checked manual and it wasn’t much help. Shut it off and recranked but icon was still there. Finished driving home with no issues with motor or transmission. I noticed the transmission gear indicator on the tach gauge is missing. This morning, the wrench icon is gone, but gear indication is still gone. I can’t get to dealer until next week. Anybody know if it’s just an indication problem or something more major that I need to be worried about? Thanks!

Click the Up/Down on the gear shift while in Drive to get it back.

wreedsvt has provided the correct input. I researched this as my gear shift indicator has gone dark on me before, and if it ever does, a press of the "+" on the gear shifter brings it right back on the display.

As far as the wrench icon goes, I have not seen that come up yet on my F150 Power Stroke.

In my opinion, the above two items are likely unrelated to each other.

Wrench is bad. Get Forscan and pull codes.

Thanks! That was the ticket.

Got a message on FordPass about Powertrain /reduced power. ForScan showed a code for the same problem. Going to dealership this week. Disappointing after only 2500 miles. Thanks for the inputs.
