Warning lights

Ford is popular for the dashboard ( motherboard) shorting out & causing these problems. Any recall notices? call them first. Sorry I can't be more helpful from here, but I have R/R many of those due to electrical shorting & bad motherboards. Good luck

96 breeze battery gos died over night

connect an amp meter in where the battery earth wire is and read the current draw with everything off. Low current indicates something like a glove box light or boot light and heavier current draws indicate something like a relay malfunction or a power wire just shorting out somewhere. Once you get an idea of the current draw take it to an accredited auto electrician and tell him of the result and he may have a good idea of where to start.

My tail lights on my 1999 chevy venture work when they won't to and I think it's a ground short.. But I don't know where to look for it!

get a wiring diagram, follow this circuit, wire by wire, start @ rear, your tail lights, check each bulb, then proceed to front, along frame rail, to switch & fuse block. test for continuity & shorts, bad wires, corrosion, etc

AT Oil Temperature is probably "Automatic Transmission".You may need a transmission flush(do not confuse this with a fluid and filter change).Or,it could be a bad sensor or trans thermostat.

D4 lite flashes

Flashing D4 light is an error from the TCU (transmission control unit), so you got something going on with your transmission. If you want to pull the error code, remove the passengers side kick panel and look for a pair of wires with a blue connector at the end. Stick a paper clip or some other piece of wire into each hole of the connector to short the wires. Put your key in the ignition and turn 2 clicks. The D4 light will flash the code...short flashes=1 and long flashes=10. Add the number of short and long flashes to get your code. Errors are below:

0-Transmission control unit (TCU) faulty.
1-Lock-up solenoid 'A' circuit open or shorted.
2-Lock-up solenoid 'B' circuit open or shorted.
3-Throttle Position Sensor circuit open or shorted.
4-Vehicle Speed Sensor open or shorted - No signal from speedometer.
5-Shift Lever Position Switch circuit shorted.
6-Shift Lever Position Switch circuit open.
7-Shift Solenoid 'A' circuit open or shorted.
8-Shift Solenoid 'B' circuit open or shorted.
9-Counter shaft or transmission speed pulse generator open or shorted.
10-Coolant Temperature Sensor open or shorted.
11-Engine RPM (Ignition coil signal) open or shorted.
12-(No code 12 used)
13-Main shaft speed pulse generator open or shorted.
14-Linear (line pressure control) solenoid open or shorted.
15-Kick down switch circuit shorted.

Hope helps.

My temperature gauge turned from a blue light with the temperature showing to an orange light with a picture of a car with arrows pointing left & right inside.... what does this mean?

when the blue light is on its telling you that the engine is COLD and not to use full power.the other warning light is telling you that you should check the water system for fluid/levels/airlock.

A short in the charging system

Get your alternator checked - probably the brushes are worn out.
The voltage regulator is generally an integral part of the alternator brush-holder assembly.
