Why might the service light be on?

    What if the current car owner won't let me take it in? Can I just go in and ask them or do they need to see the car?

sounds like you had the "new kid" working on your car. its hard to find good help these days. the service adviser should have had his better technicians look at it after the first numb skull laid hands on it. as far as the lighting problems i would say it sounds like a blown fuse or an unplugged light connector. you should have your ford dealer check it out and see if it looks like something has been tampered with. good luck. and try firestone complete autocare next time. usually better managed. usually.

For me it is waste of time,go to the local
auto parts store & buy OEM quality parts

The check oil light at next gas station came on. Service is due in 4K miles. Amy I ok to drive about 100 miles?

Simply pull the dipstick and check the oil level, if it is still showing then yes you can still drive it much longer, swing by a mechanic and ask him to check that the oil pump is working correctly, only take 2 minutes and he shouldnt charge for having a look. Good luck

You need to buy the service manual for your car, it is a must have, if you want to DIY your car

here are two links:

Buy straight from Haynes

Buy from reseller

Check also on Ebay, sometimes you can find second hand for few $$.
