2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid Powertrain Failure light

Car didn’t start easily. When it did this light came on PowerTrain Failure. What does it mean to have powertrain failure show up on my 2014 Ford Hybrid Fusion? Does it need to go to the dealer? Cost?

Is this the wrench light?

When the 12 volt battery is failing/weak it can cause intermittent starting and hybird or powertrain warning messages. Have the 12 volt battery checked first, then the powertrain systems.

At 4 years old the battery is a good guess.

Thank you for your replies! Much appreciated! I will check the battery first thing in the morning.
