Some cars require you to pump the gas pedal a couple of times (2-3) with the ignition switch on (don't start the vehicle). Then turn the ignition switch off then start the vehicle.

SOURCE: ford freestar 2004 the TRAC OFF message comes

I had the same problem and apparently fixed it by mistake. I replaced the cruise control deactivation switch under the master cylinder, hoping the cruise would be fixed. Some how with that the "trac off" light went out and gave me the ability to turn it on/off from the button again. The part was $30 from the local dealer and easy to replace. Before you run out to replace the switch check the connections on the old one. It plugs in upside down which may accumulate water from puddles and things causing connection issues ( a known problem ).

Odometer went do i go about getting it out to check ID number

What ID number? Are you trying to find a replacement? There are only 2 kinds used in a 2006 Freestar - with a message center (6F2Z-10849-BB) and without the message center (6F2Z-10849-BB)

NOTE: If the instrument cluster is replaced, the new one must be programmed to work with your engine computer or the engine will not run - it will go into theft-protect mode.

Getting it out is very easy:
1. Disable the Supplemental Restraint System
2. Tilt the steering column to the lowest position
3. Remove the steering column cover
4. Remove the instrument cluster finish panel
5. Remove the screw and disconnect the cable for the shift indicator
6. Remove instrument cluster screws
7. Disconnect the instrument cluster wiring connector
8. Remove instrument cluster
9. Reverse procedure to install

I need to know the procedure to reset, 'Change Oil warning' on my 2006 Ford Freestar.

On the right side of the steering wheel there is a button that says "setup". Turn the ignition key to the on position, push the setup button and hold it until the change oil warning shows 100%. There should be a message that pops up telling you to push the reset button to the right of the setup button. Push the reset button and hold until the message confirms the oil life has been changed to 100%. Release button turn off ignition key. Now start the engine to make sure the warning light does not come back on. If it does, try again.
