There's a gas module located above the spare tire . This is famous for shorting out causing the problems I described and blowing a fuse in the panel, the fuse number is f43 which causes the vehicle to shut down, Hope this helps someone else. Thanks

2005 Ford Freestar, altenator went out, During the process the Brake/ABS dash lights came on, when the battery got low, The transmission shifts fine, working normal.

ok you changed the altenator did you do this yourself ? now take off the battery cables and reconnect them to clear the trouble codes and use your key fob when the alarm sounds to stop it from going into theft mode put the key in the ignition and turn it to the run position do not try to start it yet wait about 3 minutes for the system to get all the voltage parameters back then turn the key off then start the car it may idle rough at first do not apply any gas peddle just let it run after the idle stabilizes drive the vehicle so it can continue to relearn the operating system parameters if the lights come on again take it to auto zone or advance ETC. to get it scanned but I think you should be ok the system works by voltage and being the altenator went bad the systems voltage was way down causing the codes good luck Stephen

I was at a stop light and the vehicle shut itself of after being idol for several minutes. Immediately after the car shut off, the oil light turned on. I was able to restart the car and continue drivi

The oil light SHOULD come on if the engine is not running and the key is on. That is how it would warn you if the engine lost oil pressure. So that is normal.

But you really should get the little car fixed or it may fail you when you can least afford to have it quit.

My 2005 BMWX5 3.0 battery light started flashing like it had a loose connection 2 days ago. The next day it came on and stayed on, drove for about 5 miles and the dash lit up saying engine fail safe mode...

I would have a battery load test done to check for a failed battery cell bridge or a dead cell. Lights will come on at low battery voltage but there is not always enough current to do any thing else. Check alternator drive belt for condition and tension. Have a condition test done on the alternator to see if it is charging correctly as it may have failed and the battery ran down trying to run everything electrical.

Replaced battery now tail lights are out and rough idle

Your vehicle computer needs to relearn because of the loss of power to the ECU. Once your car goes through the drive cycle, things should calm down. I think your Tail light may either be a coincidence or you neglected to put a ground wire on...

Reduced power light came on right after abs fault light came on

Firstly, you will have to perform a jump start, using another vehicle or battery.

I suspect that your alternator may have failed, so please do the following:

1) With vehicle running, use a voltmeter across the battery terminals. If charging is lower than 13.5 volts, then you can replace the alternator.
2) If charging can go up to 14 volts when revving the engine slightly, then go to 3
3) With engine off, check voltage across battery terminals. If lower than 12.4 volts, and if alternator check was okay, then replace the vehicle battery and retry.
