Hi! Is the light the shape of an engine? if so this could be either a mangement Warning!(Possible engine fault) or maybe a Service interval reminder? Best be enquiring at your local Ford Dealership. Better safe than sorry!

You have a Check Engine Light. You need to take it to a mechanic to find out what the fault is. A common fault is a loose gas cap. If the vehicle is over 100,000 miles, it could be the Oxygen Sensor. Some mechanics will do the diagnostic for free. Others will charge for the diagnostic. You can check with Autozone or other Auto Stores to see if they will let you borrow the tool to check your car for the fault code.

CTS 2009 Reset, recurring of fuel gauge and engine light issue ?

I would first try to do a hard reset which means disconnecting your battery for 24 hours, that solves more problems than you would imagine.
Good luck.

If the check engine light is on then hook up an OBD reader (which is pretty easy to do and a lot of parts stores do it for free) and find out what the problem is.

I have a 2005 Jeep liberty and I recently lost my gas cap(4 days ago). My check engine light came on and I am wondering if it is due to the gas cap being lost. Going to buy a new one today.

Yes...the cap needs to be on there or the purge system will register a leak. The light may not go out right away but usually will after about thirty miles of driving. (computer needs to go through a complete self test cycle).
