Check your wiring. Get a Haynes mini manual and trace your wiring from the ignition switch to the starting and charging system back to the speedo head.

Probably a fuse box issue as the oil light is on a different circuit to the batt' light.
you also might have a dead alternator, check out put when running with the relevent tester.

Suddenly problem showed, idle at 1000 rpm (know that normal is 600), traction off light, loss of power, stopped running after few mins. NO Check engine light came on!!!

You should take it to a ASE certified repair shop that has the diagnostic equipment to check it out , an I don't mean a code reader . I mean a factory scan tool that can look at engine sensor data PID'S ! It Just stopped running ? Will it start right up again or is it dead . Check for spark , that means pulling the Ignition Coil Housing an using special tool J 36012-A , there just plug wires . Install a J 26792 Spark Tester on #1 spark plug jumper wire. Connect the #4 jumper wire to a good ground. Connect the other jumper wires from the 2-3 ignition coil to the respective cylinders,Connect the J 43298 Igniton Module Tester to the ICM.
Do a fuel pressure test ! With the Factory scan tool check the idle air control valve counts , an see if it can be controlled . 220 K miles , ever have timing chain replaced ?

FORD 2001 CV - Headlights and running lights off, instrument cluster lights off, dome light off, rear window defogger off, turn signals not working. Check all mini fuses under dash OK, maxi and mini fuses...

Your owners manual will show you the location of the relay, for the lights, swap the lights relay with another on. Also, if the light switch is working, and the fuse is good, you will be able to hear the relay click. Have a helper run the light switch while you listen for it to click.

Drl light on dash board

The DRL light is for the daytime running lights. Maybe you have a short in the wiring, or a bulb is going bad.

these cars are notorious for the security locking up on them you can usually unlock them yourself by turning your ignition key on all the way until all the lights come on an let it sit for 10 minutes and then try to start it it should start but it shows that there is a problem with the key switch, or your igniton key chip could be going bad. hope this helped

replace brake peddleswitch first, if that dont cure, replace the throttle peddle switch, and if that dont worrk replace the reverse switch on gear box and the forward detector switch for the hill desent. as for the oil warning light it can only be one of three things , ie low oil, bad wiring or switch and last the worst of all oil pump failure.

I have a yellow triangler light showing while the car is running

I suspect that yellow triangle lamp is your emergency flasher switch. If you were to press the switch (triangle) you would find the flashers start working and if you press it again they would stop.

Something weird on a 2005 chevy Silverado

The next time it acts up try turning the key back just a little and see if everything comes online if it does you will need to replace the igniton switch not the key lock the electric switch that will be located in or on the sterring colum.
