It could be a lot of thing's ,define lost power ! Engine died an the light's lit on the instrument cluster ? Does the engine spin when you turn the key to start ? Did the malfunction light come on when the engine was running ? Do the headlamps work , shine bright ? Battery good , connections good ? What year is the vehicle ? Engine Ztec ?
As to the light you must have a fault code test run to see what turned on the light, it could be related to the inop fuel gage, And that is the fuel tank sending unit causing that. Do the fault code first.
Does the radio play ? Are any other back lighting components not lighting ? Does the HVAC control panel light up ? You probably need new radio !
The second interior lighting group includes lamps which may be dimmed. This group may use a combination of vacuum fluorescent (VF) illumination, LED illumination and incandescent lamps.
When the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, the radio VF display turns ON at maximum brightness. When the park lamps are ON, all incandescent and LED back lighting turn ON at the dimming level indicated by the instrument panel (I/P) dimmer switch. At the same time all VF displays dim to match the indicated dimming level. The panel dimmer switch potentiometer is an input to the body control module (BCM). When the driver selects a dimming setting by moving the I/P dimming switch potentiometer, all incandescent back lighting lamps are provided with a specific voltage. When the I/P dimmer switch is moved from MIN to MAX, all VF displays, as well as all incandescent back lighting respond from minimum intensity to maximum brightness in response to the I/P dimmer switch.
You probably checked this, but sometimes we forget. The dial on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel controls the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Turn the dial to adjust the brightness. Also, to reduce glare at night, the fuel and temperature gauges dim when you turn on the parking lights or headlights. You then adjust their brightness when you adjust the instrument panel brightness. Turn the dial up as far as it will go to return the fuel and temperature gauges to their daytime brightness.
I hope helps and it's that simple for you.
First, your instrument panel lights. Make sure to check the knob on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel which controls
the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Push the knob to get it to pop out. Turn the knob to adjust the brightness.
If that is not the problem, go to your fuse boxes. Check those in the interior fuse box (left kick panel, below the dash--fuse chart on the cover) and those in the engine compartment fuse box (far upper left as you face the car). If, after you replace anything that has blown, it blows again, that would suggest a short somewhere in the system. If you don't find any blown fuses (and I think you will) then it's time to go to the light bulbs. The tail light bulbs are accessed from inside the trunk. The license plate bulbs are just above the license plate and are accessed by removing two screws that hold the fixture in, then taking off the click plate and removing the bulbs. Hope this is of some help.
I’m assuming that you are talking about your instrument panel lights. First, make sure and check the dial on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel.It controls the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Turn the dial to adjust the brightness.If it accidently got turned all the way down, you will have no instrument lights. If that isn’t the problem, the interior fuse box is underneath the dashboard on the driver's side.Remove the fuse box lid by swinging the lid down and pulling it straight out of its hinges. Fuse number 30 (7.5 amp) controls your instrument lights. Hope this helps you.
Hi where the brake fluid goes check the wires on the cap wiggle them around and have a friend look at the light for any changes (could be faulty connection) also have the brake pads checked to make sure they are not to low and activating the sensor, if all is good there then it sounds like a faulty sensor, Hope this helps
