    Which light is it? If it is the charge light, the alternator may not be producing sufficient current.

Hi I had a problem with the ignition light staying on. Traced to a broken wire in the loom to the alternator , approx 15cm away from alternator plug. Check all 3 wires for continuity to the big plug behind the ignition coil area.

Hi Adrian, Have a diagnostic scan carried out to pin point the area of the problem. When the 'engine check' becomes illuminated it is indicating an electronic management problem. It could be related to a defective ignition coil or coils or a defective camshaft or crankshaft sensor. Take it for a scan. Regards John

! with circle on dashboard


this means there is a problem in the brake system of the car and u should seek service from a dealer or qualified brake shop. here is a copied section of your owners manual about the light.

Brake system warning
Momentarily illuminates when the
ignition is turned to the RUN
position to ensure the circuit is
functional. Also illuminates if the
parking brake is engaged. If the
brake warning lamp does not illuminate at these times, or remains on
after releasing the parking brake, seek service immediately.
One of the following conditions may exist:
² low brake fluid level in the reservoir.
² Brake force distribution system failure. The ABS light will also
illuminate if this condition is present.

2007 Ford F-150 a orange light with a horshoe with an exclamation point in the center is blinking in the dash. What does this mean?


well maybe u don't have a manual, so here is the difinition from the owners manual.
Low tire pressure warning (if
equipped):
Illuminates when your
tire pressure is low. If the light
remains ON at start up or while
driving, the tire pressure should be
checked. Refer to Inflating Your Tires in the Tires, Wheels and
Loading
chapter. When the ignition is first turned to ON, the light will
illuminate for 3 seconds to ensure the bulb is working. If the light does
not turn ON, have the system inspected by your authorized dealer. For
more information on this system, refer to Understanding Your Tire
Pressure Monitoring System
in the Tires, Wheels and Loading
chapter.

this info would cost you £30.+ at ford Radio Frequency Programming Instructions:
  • Insert the ignition key and turn from position II (Ignition) to position 0 (All off) and back four times within three seconds.
  • Remove the ignition key. The locking control system is now in "learn mode" for the next 20 seconds and the red warning system LED (By the clock) stays on continuously to indicate this.
  • During the 20 seconds press one of the transmitter buttons. The remotes signal and code number is learned by the locking module and is indicated by flashing the warning system LED.
  • Wait until learn mode times out (20 seconds) or switch the ignition back to ON.nfrared Programming Instructions:
  • Put your key into the ignition and turn to position 1 (Radio). After approximately 10 seconds the red alarm control LED (next to the clock) should illuminate. As soon as it comes on remove the key from the ignition - the LED should remain lit.
  • Point the remote's "eye" at one of the front door sensors and press the rear button until the light on the transmitter illuminates (Keep the button pressed)
  • With the rear button held in press the front button 4 times then release both at the same time. The control lights in both clock and fob will flash 4 times to indicate programming complete.
  • Turn the ignition back on to exit programming mode
