I would venture to say that your gauge is stuck or more likely the sending unit is faulty

It illuminates signs in dushboard.what could be the problems


first check your battery and cables... a dying battery and/ or corroded, loose cables may be the cause all those problems

If you don't have the owner's manual, you can get a PDF file of it from a USA ford website: Google search 2005 ford focus owners manual

The battery light means bad battery, alternator, or wires

Oil light means low oil level, bad oil sensor or bad wire to sensor

Abs light, check brakes or wiring to speed sensors or abs computer

Orange check engine light, a sensor or other electrical part has failed or wire broken to that sensor. You will need an obd2 scanner to find out trouble codes!

But, if ALL OF THE LIGHTS ARE ON while car is running, you really need to check and make sure the battery and charging system is OK FIRST

A red light on the dash board


The warning lights should be listed in your owners manual. It could be a warning for one of the gauges, or engine/transmission problems.
They are more common on Toyota Prius.

How to turn change oil light


iI you mean 'how to turn change oil light off" go to fuse panel. Open drivers door there is a panel cover on the side of dash board, remove cover there is a red RESET button that resets oil pressure and tire pressure. Turn the ignition key to the on position but don't start the car. Now press and release the reset button the change oil light should start to flash, now press and hold the reset button until you hear chimming hold until chimming stops then release, the change oil light should go off. If you need to reset tire pressure press reset button twice, the first push will make the change oil light flash the second press will make the tire pressure light flash then hold untill chimming stops, light should go out . Hope this helps.

Just bought my Honda accord 2007 but it did not come with book. When the wrench sign on the dashboard is lit what does that mean. It also shows oil......15% does it need oil change?


The wrench on your dash board means that maintenace is required. if your oil is at 15% it is time for an oil change and the tech that changes your oil will reset the light.

Yellow engine light


Yellow engine light on the dash board of Toyota Camry is the indication of low oil in car.----------- Get the oil checked and refilled.Driving the car with low oil is not advisable.------------- There is a reset procedure to stop this yellow light on dash.In some cases this helps ,but in some cases the oil needs to be refilled to stop this yellow light.------------- I will mention the reset procedure as follows:-- Turn on the ignition switch, set the mileometer reading to miles not trip meter, turn off the ignition fully, press the button to reset the trip meter and keep it pressed down as you turn on the ignition key to key on engine off, keep it pressed down for about 15 seconds and then the light will be reset. -------------- Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Electrical Problem with speed gauge, RPM and dash board lignts.


That is a manufacturing defect associated with your instrument cluster. My local dealer replaced my entire instrument cluster for free (truck was out of warranty) when my speedometer showed 100 mph in a parking lot and my oil pressure gauge read 0.

A13 sign the dash


The 15% is a warning the oil change is near, The "A" means change oil only ("B" would mean change oil and filter) The 1 means to rotate the tires, The 3 means to change the trans fluid. The owner's manual has the complete chart.

Wrench light is on and odometer shows negative mileage


The negative number means the car should have had it's oil changed that many miles ago. Oil life starts at 100% for new oil & counts down every 10%. At 15% the display will always show, which means it's near time to change the oil.

usersteve83, your oil may have been changed but the timer not reset. Reset the timer as shown...
1. Turn ignition to the "ON" position. (do not start engine)
2. Press SEL/RESET repeatedly until the oil life indicator is displayed.
3. Press & hold the SEL/RESET for about 10 seconds until it blinks then let go of the button.
4. Press the SEL/RESET again for about 5 seconds or until the oil life indicator resets to 100%.

Wrench = Maintenance Minder: Symbol letter & number...
Symbol A - Relace engine oil.
Symbol B - Replace engine oil & filter, Inspect front & rear brakes, Check parking brake adjustment, Visually inpest the tie rods, suspension components,driveshaft boots, brake hoses & line (including ABS), all fluid levels & their conditions, exhaust system, fuel lines & connections.
Symbol 1 - Rotate tires.
Symbol 2 - Replace air cleaner element (dusty conditions every 15K miles) & replace dust & pollen filter (behind glovebox) every 15K miles if mainly dusty or city driving.
Symbol 3 - Replace transmission fluid.
Symbol 4 - Replace spark plugs.
Symbol 5 - Replace engine coolant.

All above are taken from the 2006 Civic EX owner's manual.

My car dash-board shows "do off" light.


i think you might mean "od off". that means overdrive for the transmission. the button for that may be on the shifter handle or a button on the center dash board. unless youre towing or need a bit extra power you would generally leave it "on" with no lite on dash
