SOURCE: warning light focus st170

Pretty much. The temperature is low enough that if your engine is not properly prepared for the cold you could experience engine issues. i.e. Frozen radiator, tube failures and other issues like low viscosity oil which would create lubrication issues and premature pump failure. Best to ensure that your car is wheater ready for the cold. DRRXR :)

The snow flake on the dash is it a warning light


There is no snowflake on the instrument cluster if that is where you see the light. there is a gear (circular) with an ! in the middle. If that is on, you have an issue and may be in emergency cooling mode to rpevent engine overheating damage.

Need a better description of symbol and where exactly it is.

Also, check your coolant level.

U S Focus or Europe?

Orange light on dash is lit - shaped like a snowflake with tiny hole in the middle


thats either your air conditioning is turned on, or your heated windscreen or rear screen is turned on... It may also be the heated mirrors or heated front sets.. Check in your handbook as it will tell you in that..

My focus st170 oil temp gauge is on the red what is causing this


Hi mate.

This could be caused by low oil level.

If this is not the case and you have the correct amount of oil, then I would suspect the sender unit ( maybe the wire has come off) or the oil pump has given out and needs replacing.

Until you sort this problem do not use the vehicle as you may damage the engine through lack of lubrication.
