Instrument panel symbols on dash of a 2003 ford windstar

In the center of the instrument panel is a symbol (O) or sort of like this that came on today and lights up in red.This stayed on for quite some time.When I stopped the engine and restarted it it was on again.After driving for a few kilometers the symbol went out.Since I have no manual I could not think of what this pertained to.Can you please help.Thanks Larry

    Anytime Larry! but you know what, I suggest that you check your brake linings up on the rear because if the lights came on for quite sometimes, it means that the brake lining and the drum had been rubbing each other and this is a significant loss of lining thickness.

Need to know what the symbols mean on my dash lost

It's your oil light.

Check your oil light as it's most likely low. Other causes can be a bad sensor, or there's a pressure leak

This is usually caused by the switches sticking in the door latches. Try spraying some WD40 in the latches and open and close the doors a bunch of times that should take care of it.
