Question about 2006 Ford F-150
That is the limp home mode indicator
Electronic throttle control (if equipped): Illuminates when the engine has defaulted to a ’limp-home’ operation. Report the fault to a dealer at the earliest opportunity.
This can happen from a few things, one i if you are hitting the no load rev limiter a lot. I have seen this happen from people playing in a parking lot in the snow doing doughnuts. This is one example where service is not required, but there are a few where service is required.
Were you pulling something ( like a log or bush ) and spinning the tires a lot ?

It means your truck needs to be serviced, oil change or a schedueled maintenance service according to mileage. Check your owners manual for more info or take your truck to a local shop for more details.
