Hi this is to do with the braking system, does the picture look like a tyre? if so it is telling you that you need to inflate your Tyre's as they are low, or you have low brake fluid, look under the hood and check the reservoir to see if it needs topping up, or handbrake light ( this is normally in a circle with the exclamation mark in the middle with the ( ) on the outside, this is telling you that your pads need replacing...hope this helps please vote thanks

Does it have a squiggly line underneath the ()? If so it is the Tire PRessure Monitoring system telling you that one or more tires are low on air or one of the snesors is bad causing it to give off an invalid reading. Check the pressure in all wheels and add if needed then reset the light and see what happens.

- press the SET UP button on the message center thingie until "SYSTEM CHECK" comes on the screen.
- Press the RESET button until "HOLD RESET TO LEARN" comes on the screen.
- Continue to hold button for about three seconds.
- The low tire warning light should flash three times as the thing resets.

My transaxcle light is on on my 2005 ford freestar what does that mean


Check the fluid, first and foremost, then look at the color and for burn marks on the dipstick. If there are burn marks that can indicate an overheating/cooling issue. If that is in fact the case you will want to deal with the quickly as to avoid issues.

Many people assume that if the transmission is still shifting okay there must not be a problem. That just isn't the case know days as on board computers do much of the shifting vs old school where it was based on pressure.

Other possibilities include the pump is going, bad, I think Torque Converter and possibily a solenoid.

It means there is an error in the way miles to empty is calculated because your fuel level sensor isn't working. That's also why the low fuel indicator is on.

The warning light that looks like an engine is lit up


That is your "Check Engine Light" / "Service Engine Light". It means the Computer (ECM / PCM / ECU, it goes by many names) has detected a problem with one or more parts on the engine or transmission.
The easiest way to find out, is to stop by an auto parts store (like Advance Auto, Auto Zone, etc) and have them hook up a Scan Tool to read the Trouble Codes from the ECM. They do that for free. Most if not all garages/mechanics also have the necessary Scan Tool as well, but most of those will charge you just to read the codes.

The light when you open the door on my 2005 ford freestar are taking a long time (about 30 to 40 min.) to cut off. what can i do or get to get them off quicker?


One of the doors has a door ajar switch that is bad, it needs to be put on a ford computer and you can look at the switches to see which switch is bad, after 40 minutes goes by the battery saver relay times out and the lights go off.

Engine light stays on replace intake manifold plugs fault codes with pcm lean idle condition ford 2005 freestar


I would take a look at the idle air control valve and see if it is sticking. You could try taking it off and cleaning it. If that seems to make a difference then I would replace it with a new one just to be sure.
