Question about 2003 Mercury Sable

2 Answers

I had my transmission replaced in march 2011. Now when I reach about 2 & 1/2 rpm a exclamation point in a circle flashing pops up on my dashboard. What could this mean? It does it when I am driving on interstate. Then when I get in town and come to a stop...the car would skip once or twice while that light is flashing.

It is the "Check Transaxle/Transmission" light.

Ensure your transmission fluid is at the appropriate level, as it should be checked at least once after any transmission service is conducted. Low fluid will cause the light to go on when you come to a stop and the fluid level moves forward, exposing momentarily the low level sensor.

If your level is correct and the issue is still occurring, there is a problem within your transmission and it should be brought back to the people who replaced your transmission.

The dipstick for a mercury sable is located behind the motor, and is a hard to see (usually black) circle dipstick. Do not mistake it for the oil dipstick located in the front, transmission fluid is red. The stick could also be, yellow, or red. Bring a light.

The fluid level should be in BETWEEN the cross hatch pattern on the metal stick when the car has not been running.

There is a problem with youre abs (anti lock braking system) Please Take It to a licenced mechanic to be fixed, as it is too much of a safety issue to do yourself.

Round circle with an exclamation mark blinlimg and my RPM high, does anyone know what this means?


TRANSAXLE warning light (exclamation mark inside a gear symbol)
Indicates problems with transmission.

The first thing to check is the level and condition of the transmission fluid. Possibly as simple as low transmission fluid, but it may be a serious transmission fault.
The high RPM sounds like the transmission is slipping.

Mechanic will be able to read the codes and tell you what is wrong.

What does the yellow cog light on the dash of my 1999 BMW Z3 mean?


The car is now quite old, and the yellow gear ("cog") light indicates that the hydraulic pressure in the transmission is incorrect. Check fluid level and, if the fluid is murky or off-color, have the transmission serviced and the filter replaced.

Light that looks like exclamation point in a circle located below tachometer flashing.


First off you need an owner's manual. You can get a free one here. http://pdfservicemanual.com/automotive/2001-ford-taurus-owners-manual The light that looks like a gear with an exclamation point inside indicates there is a problem with the transmission. May just be low of transmission fluid. To check the level dive the car until the transmission is warm, park on a level surface, place gear shift in park with engine running, and check transmission fluid level. Add only if necessary and do not overfill. If it is not low of fluid then seek professional help. The exclamation point in a circle under the fuel gauge next to the Brake light indicates you are low of brake fluid. Check the level of the brake fluid. If it is low you more than likely need to check your brake pads as they are worn out.
