If the car is automatic,u maybe pushed a button which is usually located on the automatic shifter itself or close to it or on the dashboard.if i am correct,this power light means that it is a switch with the option to save a little gas by pushing it once it would go into economy mode or by pushing it again,will show the power light which is supposed to give it a little more power but more fuel consumption.i am not 100% sure but usually when you see a light that says power,this is normally what it means.it has to do with the transmission operation.just look for a small button on or near the shifter or on the dash.hope this info helps.take care and good luck, manny

This is the overdrive switch. From what I understand this switch can be shut off when you do not need power to climb ect.
When you shut off the switch you resume normal drive operation with better fuel economy.
If you have no control over when this light comes on you will need to have a OBD II reader plugged in to check for codes.

Meaning of warning lights


Manufacturers spend billions of dollars a year refining their cars' on-board diagnostics systems. However, all of the sophisticated diagnostics in the world will do little good if you don't know what the warning lights mean.
Purpose
Modern automobiles have dozens of sensors to monitor engine, braking and chassis performance. Any deviation from the car's established limits will trigger a dashboard warning light.


Check Engine Light
Check engine lights can indicate failure of the emissions system, fuel injection system, faulty sensor feedback, overheating or lack of voltage, transmission failure, and engine knock ignition system failure.


Brake Lights
Almost all cars have two separate lights for the braking system: a red "ABS" (anti-lock braking system) light and "Brake Warning" light. The former indicates failure of the electronic anti-lock system, the latter a loss of fluid pressure in the brake system itself.


Dynamic Warnings
Many modern cars have traction or stability control systems that prevent and notify the driver of tire slippage. These lights can come in the form of amber "SLIP," "TC," or "TRACTION" lights (for spinning tires), or "ESC" (electronic stability control) lights for a sliding vehicle.


Safety Lights
Most cars have a diagrammatic warning that indicates a door that isn't all the way closed, a seat-belt warning light, and an "airbag disabled/enabled" light. Any or all of these will be red or amber.

How to replace dashboard lites on 2004 F150


Locate the knob or dial that controls the brightness of the dashboard lights. If the control is not immediately evident, check your owner's manual.

Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse.

Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights. Replace the fuse if necessary.

Call your mechanic if neither of these steps fixes your problem.

I am looking for a fuse box diagram for a 1995 Honda Prelude.


The manual indicates Fuse 11 (10A) interior fuse box, INSTRUMENT PANEL LIGHTS.
Also, the is a dimmer for them:
The dial on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel controls the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Turn the dial to adjust the brightness.
To reduce glare at night, the fuel and temperature gauges dim when you turn on the parking lights or headlights. You then adjust their brightness when you adjust the instrument panel brightness. Turn the dial up as far as it will go to return the fuel and temperature gauges to their daytime brightness.
You can try the following URL for a copy of your manual (which includes fuse box diagrams). You won't be able to save the whole thing (except by sections), but you can print copies of whatever sections are important to you. You'll need Adobe reader (free from Adobe) to read the manual.

Hope this helps you.

Dim Dashboard read


On most vehicles you have a dimmer switch ( not talking about headlights) which you can adjust how bright or how dim the dashboard lights are because some people want them bright and others prefer dim either check your owners manual or check all around for it from drivers seat ( within drivers reach) when you find it if you can't adjust it then you want to consider replacing dash lights or switch.
