Three lights on dashboard -engine, battery and ???
My battery, and engine light (and one other one that may be fluid) just came on. The car seems to be running fine. I continued to drive home,and the car restarted okay when I did get home, but I live in a rural area and am wondering if it is safe to drive about 60 kilometres to work tomorrow?P.S - I did hear a noise a couple of times yesterday that I thought might be the fan belt, but chalked it up to the weather which was wet and icy.

Sounds like you might have wire problem.
Try turning the key to the point before ignition. This is actually a dashboard test that have all lights on the dashboard turn on. Try to see if the lights are completely bright or a bit dull in the light.
You battery might be uncharging itself, instead of charging. I have tried that. even with an only 1-2 day old battery.
You aren't alone with your lights problem . Mu '59 Picanto did exactly the same thing last night. No dashboard, heater, or air vent illumination and worse still no rear lights (note brake lights do work). Got home switched off everything, then switched back on and all working. Very strange.
Here's a list of your dash lights and their meanings
1. Door-ajar warning light
2. Oil pressure warning light
3. Check engine warning light
4. Tour or Sport for the ECS
5. Security indicator

Check your brake fluid level in the engine compartment. Its located on the rear RH side of the engine compartment, its a white/clear resevoir connecting to a large black circular object. If the fluid is low, fill to proper level, also I would recommend having your brake system checked as there may be a leak. If the fluid is fine and at the proper level, you may have a damaged/broken brake fluid level sensor or damaged/broken Emergency brake switch. Hopefully this helps....please rate thanks!!
Hi, You should check for a sligt break fluid leak from the break light switch (attacked to the master cylinder). Yeah, I know this seems strange, but on my 2001 this leak caused all types of problems with lots of dashboard indicators. The leaking switch was a recall for Ford Trucks, but not the minivans. Hope this helps
check all fluid levils if all are fine trying to disconnect + batt. cable for about 15 min and then re connect that should reset your coumputer... or for about 15- to 35 $ you can go to any shop and they can dyno it and let you know what thwe problem is if none found ask them to dump the code
