SOURCE: unknown warning light

Check you fluid levels on the car. Oil and transmission can turn this light on. Check the oil while car is off and transmission while the car is on.

What is wrong with my 2015 Ford Kuta diesel?


Way to many things to guess at on these. Best to have the codes read. Most every thing on the engine and transmission will cause it to go to reduced power. Then start turn on other s lights, like stability.

Loss of power on acceleration & hills no warning lights showing


Have the codes read anyway. Turn the key on, do you see a check engine light? We work on auction cars also. To many times I see that the light is not on.

Warning lights


Ford is popular for the dashboard ( motherboard) shorting out & causing these problems. Any recall notices? call them first. Sorry I can't be more helpful from here, but I have R/R many of those due to electrical shorting & bad motherboards. Good luck

    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne i would look for Vacuum Leaks
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne i would remove the spark plugs check engine compression hope to see about 180 psi on each cylinder
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne i would exam each spark plugs to see if fowled with Gasoline or carbon keep spark plug with each cylinder because low compression will cause this
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne low compression i would exam cooling systemicon1.pngfor airbubles or coolant in engine oil
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne if oil looks milky white in color its coolant do not operate vehicle
    Mar 19, 2014

    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne check air filter and breather to insure the intake is getting air before you do compression test
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne if engine dies when hot lets look at the fuel pump pressure
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne lets take and look at the fuel cap where you put your fuel in make sure the vent is open which allow outside air pressure becuase you can have a 100 billion gallon second pump but if there is no air coming into take the pump will pump 0
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne Check your OBD 2 codes First this will give you ideas of what happening ie bad oxgen sensor telling me look for vacuum leak or poor spark ignition or poor engine compression, possible injector leaking
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne poor compression tell me the engine maybe out of timing and or valves or worn or burnt exspecially when engine is hot and it dies
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne a cylinder leak down test would be revealing for valves or piston rings
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne if engine has good Intake of Air and gas mixture and then good compression of air and gas mixture and good spark from the Ignition and good flowing exhaust the engine will operated smoothly
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne if engine looses power or stalls when hot take a look at the catyalitic converters to see if glowing red or hot one side and cooler on rear side also check the exahust pessure at tail pipe to see if cats are plugged if you have little exhaust pressure and no exhaust leaks

    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne CHECK FOR AIR BUBBLES IN COOLANT as piston compress air if it leaking pass the headgasket seal into the coolant jacket this will cause air bubbles and you may loose heat out of the heater core...i have seen this with cracked heads also so if this is the case have head checked at machine shop
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne check the oil from the dip stick smell it see if you smell gasoline this is telling me thin oil, possible injector leaking gasoline
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne Low engine Compression with satuerate oil the oil ring on the piston will have hard time to create seal to cylinder wall there fore low compression exspecially when engine is hot
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne get a spray bottle fill with water and with engine runing spray water in coil packs and spark plugs wires to see if there cracked or frayed Electricty is lazy it will use the water as a ciricut and go to ground through the water this is telling me cracked coil pack or plug wires engine will began to miss and fumble while running
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne these are some tricks i use to help diagnosis problems....hope this helps
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne As far as the A/c Heater Blower i would first check the Fuse in the box with a test light, and i would check all the fuses remember you have a battery side and ignition side of the fuse box if the fuse is blow replace with manufacture Amp Fuse and if new fuse shorts then i would look at blower motor draw
    Mar 20, 2014

  • Doug Warne Check your battery Cold Crank Amps with a load test meter most parts store will do for free hoping you will buy a battery and if batter test not good if you choose to not to replace your alternator will be charging constentently and the trio diode board in your regulator located inside the alternator in most applications these days will short then this will cause a battery high amp draw so your battery wont start in the am when your late for work..
    Mar 20, 2014

  • Doug Warne If your battery is loosing charge overnight or anytime you can simply take your negaitive Cable from your batter and put a test light from the negiative cable then touch your neg. terminal and if test light illuminates you have a draw and bad draw so take amp meter and test to see the draw in amps if high amp draw i would first look at the regulator and remove the 12volt singe wire and see if draw disappear if draw is no longer then 99 percent your regulator has shorted

Subaru 2003 forester check engine light came on same time transmission seemed to stick. . . almost got into an accidnet becasue car wouldn't accelerate.


The "check engine" warning light advises that the vehicle is in "fail safe" mode. That means only some of the car's capabilities are operational, just enough to get you to the nearest service point. You probably should not drive it any further than that. Have your Subaru service man download and analize the fault codes from the car's ECM which will indicate what the problem is.

No power on hills or inclines. Engine check light used to come on and power would drop off, Know no engine check light but no power, Mechanic found 1 plug lead loose but nothing else as he needed engine...


Once the check engine light came on the code should have registered even if the light went off again the code should still be there even if the light is off. These codes only go away if you erase them with a scanner or disconnect the battery.Have the mechanic check the fuses I had a problem on a kia that also had no power and had blown a fuse.If my assistance was helpful please take the time to rate my assistance most people dont take the time we just like to know that our time and assistance are being appreciated thank you.

Check you fluid levels on the car. Oil and transmission can turn this light on. Check the oil while car is off and transmission while the car is on.

Hold light on console


The hold light is probably for a fault in the HILL HOLDER SYSTEM

This system holds the Forester on a hill without using the brake pedal, as long as you keep the clutch depressed. It's very useful when towing.

I will check my workshop manual as soon as I have some free time and try to get a definitive answer for you.
