SOURCE: symbols on dashboard

Since you don't have a manual, here are the three you need to worry about (other than the VERY obvious, the CEL, the brake, and the battery lights)

The little oil can on the left side of the cluster is oil pressure, and if the oil pressure light is coming on, you either have a bad sending unit, or you are pretty much shafted... the oil pressure light doesn't come on unless the pressure is REALLY Low. The gauge is the warning, the light comes on when it is too late (something like 2-3 psi).

On the right side of the cluster are two more, the one on the bottom, with the little vertical lines is the sensor in your radiator overflow bottle.

The one you are wondering about from your original problem is right above the radiator indicator, it is for windshield washer fluid level. when it comes on, check the fluid, but don't sweat it if the fluid is full, the sensor gos bad, mine went bad a while ago, and my light has been on in my 94N/A for the last 50k miles or so. This is one light it doesn't hurt too much to ignore.

Cheers,
Scott

SOURCE: orange engine symbol on dash stays lit.

Your car is most likely obd2 compliant (in the US everycar built after 1996 is) this means your check engine light could be on for a whole list of reasons, You will need an obd2 scanner to plug into the diagnostics connector to read the codes. Many times car parts places will let you use theres, hoping to sell you parts when you know what needs to be fixed. If the use of free one is not available you can probably buy one off of ebay for not too much. Use the code scanner, write down the codes and google them and/or buy a haynes manual that will explain how to do all these things.

Red symbol (!) lit up on panel on ford fiesta flight 2001. What does this mean?


Hi,
The red symbol means lubricant/oil is less than normal level.
Better check the level of your oil and add some until it reaches the maximum level.
Next time you put on some petrol/gasoline, ask the station attendant to check your oil level and ask him to add some oil.
Hope that helps!

Yellow exclamation point on dashboard - what does it mean?


A yellow explanation point symbol on the dashboard typically applies to the Tire Pressure Monitoring system. A thick ! inside a half drawn flat tire symbol to be complete and comes in yellow color when lit. Under normal vehicle set-up, if this indicator stays lit after the power-on selftest, you need to check your tires for any uneven pressures and adjust their pressures to correct specifications. Okay? : )

Warning symbol on dashboard


It's to do with traction control...
usually means the skid control has armed itself because the car has detected a lack of traction (if you skidded) or the car has sensed it is cold
