It means you have a fault somewhere in the car and you need a diagnostic done to clear/erase this fault.

you're do for brake service. either the front or rear brake pads have worn down to
minimum. if when you apply the brakes you don't feel pulsation, just replace the brake pads and sensors and that will take care of the light.

Hi, Sounds like the service or check engine light. It could mean a lot of things from oil change to a major problem. You should take it in so an mechanic can put a scan tool on, and that will tell you what is going on.

It means you have a computerized system management problem. An electronic sensor component has either failed, or a condition has occurred that has put a sensor out of normal range and the onboard computer is letting you know of it. Any time that light comes on it sets a code that can be read with a special code reader.Most auto parts stores will retrieve the code/ codes for you at no cost. Be very cautious interpreting the codes meaning, because various engine conditions will set a code as well, because the condition will affect what the sensor measures. If you spend the money for the replacement sensor(never cheap) it won't shut the light off.Once installed auto parts stores will not take it back.Also 90 percent of the time it is defective wiring running to the sensor or bad grounding that causes the codes/codes.So unless you have a ton of high priced testing equipment and a lot of electronic engine control troubleshooting experience,you best take in in for service. One more thing. The most common reason the light comes on is a loose or defective gas cap.The computer monitors that too.

It's a check engine light, have it checked right away. If you take it to a Ford dealer, they can give you a very detailed diagnosis, however they also charge about 80 bucks just to do that. If you take it to an auto parts store (AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, NAPA, etc.) they will often be able to check for free, but it won't be the most detailed solution.
