There are several reasons why a warning light may be on in a Ford Fiesta. Some reasons could be brakes, loose gap cap, or even low fluids.
A Ford transit light can have different meanings. If this light appears you should take the vehicle to a mechanic as soon as possible to find out the issue.
It is to alert you that there is a problem in the air bag system causing it to be disabled. If your horn does not work then you have what is called a clock spring that is bad.… If it works you can have it scanned for codes to tell you what is wrong. Under NO circumstances should you attempt to work on the system as it is very DANGEROUS. It needs to be left to a certified shop.
The Ford Freestar several warning lights. The red water warning light indicates the cooling system is overheating. The red battery warning light indicates the charging sys…tem is malfunctioning.
Skid warning light
it is low coolant level in what is called coolant header unit under bonnet of the car. In a nutshell its a plastic container looking device with a radiator cap on it. Do not o…pen whilst hot. .
If it's on th dash near the display on how many k's the car has done then it's notifying you that you've gone past a certain amount on k's on the clock and that your car… need's a service. To turn it off, start the ignition on you car and hold in the trip meter button for about 15 secs, you should hear a beep and the wrench will turn off!
Dashboard lights are warning that somethings are not Right with the car .It does not tells how good or how bad things are. i DROVE MY TOYOTA truck forever with a warning light… but i find out what the problem was first oil brake indicator failed so i just kept it full all the time.
Smart-lock Alarm System Immobilizer
When I turn my Ford falcon on 1999 model the red light flashes on the bottom and it says DET80 or something
It's basically the smartlock function. it basically immobilises your car so without the key, you can't start the car. Also I believe it has something to do with central …locking.
Either your emergency / parking brake is on or your brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder in your engine compartment is LOW
Either the parking / emergency brake is on or the brake fluid level in your brake master cylinder in your engine compartment is too low

A red flashing hand light in a Ford falcon is an indication of the engine running hot. The most common way to fix it is to add coolant to the radiator.
Why are abs anti skid and hand brake light warning lights on after changing wheel bearings on ford focus 2003 model?
Because you disturbed the sensors. Unhooking the battery for awhile then rehooking after about 15 minutes, should reset the computer.
Read your owners manual if you have one. Red light is normally a warning of low oil pressure. SRS is an indication something is wrong with the air bag system. Check Engine Lig…ht means there is a problem with the emissions system. Maintenance Required means some scheduled maintenance is required, normally an oil/filter change. Orange or red light can mean engine is overheating. Can also be a gauge with a thermometer for engine temperature. Charging gauge tells you if the alternator is charging your battery. TC or TCS or ETC stands for Traction Control. If the light is on there is a problem or the traction control is turned off. OD stands for overdrive.
Have a look in the small glovebox handbook, all the dash warning lights are there.
