Go to your local autoparts store and they can scan it and reset it for free. Get and note the code that they give to you and I can give you the right course of action to repiar it.

    Tried that. Ford is more proprietary and generic OBD II Scanners did not pick up the codes.

    Even if the code is proprietary, the scanners still have the ability to retreive the code itself (maybe not the meaning) which can be researched through Ford. This format has been mandated since 1995. If it is not communicating through the ALDL, the cause needs to be traced. Whether it is a broken wire to the ALDL (or the OBD II CONNECTOR) or the ECM/PCM has an issue which triggered the light and has not allowed communication.



Try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes

Remember if you got the MIL Lamp on,and did not make any repairs,it will come back

A green light skows indicating "service engine soon"

bring the car to a local mechanic and have them look over the car as the "service engine soon" light can mean a verity of different things need to be checked, replaced, and sometimes it is as simple as having the computer reset. There really is no way to determine what the problem is or if there is even a problem just by looking at the light.

Engine block amber light

sounds like your check engine light is on. On 99ish 3 series the check engine light was an amber engine in the instrument cluster. I thought 5 series actually said service engine soon. If you cycle your key the bulb check should illuminate all lights. see if you have a light that says service engine soon, if not, the amber engine, is the check engine light.
