    It's an American model. I notice it had a different fuel cap than what it should have come with. Was wondering if that seal could be a problem? When you start the car, the light isnt on. It comes on after you drive about a mile.

    in all honesty i wouldnt know ,these american models are different to the europeon ones ,our fuel tanks are vented on a vehicle this age ,but you could be on the right track about the fuel cap though as the focus uses the same sealed tank system as this ,with a pump under the bonnet .

How do i reset my check engine light on my ford v10

If you really fixed it, it should go out in 20 or 40 miles of driving. Or you can disconnect the negative battery cable for a minute. In that case, you will see the light come back on in 20 or 40 miles of driving.

Last option, is have someone with a code reader reset it in software.

Indicator light said check transmition

Is it the check engine light or the oil light coming on? Where is your dipstick? and if it is the oil light, put a quart of oil in before you go anywhere and then buy a dipstick. If it is the service engine light only just drive it for 20 miles without a problem.

Flashing check engine light

If its an orange light its a service engine soon light, the car can be driven, if its a red check engine light DO NOT DRIVE because of risk to damage the engine. However if there is an auto zone close by they will check the light for free. Then I can work with you from there. Good Luck
