Answer Well, it could be alot of things. Oil may need to be changed, or pressure adjusted. A spark plug may need to be changed or the engine may be overheating. My advi…ce is to take it do a mechanic to get it checked out in case it is very dangerous. Answer Yellow or red? Yellow is just a caution indicator, check something that is getting low. Red is a warning indicator that something is WAY too low and may cause severe damage if you go on. want to know what a symbol means

Bring it to a service department asap. If blinking, STOP driving immediately. 3. Powertrain Malfunction Light - this symbol shows that the powertrain has been damaged and that your car needs to be serviced As Soon As Possible. 4. ABS Warning Light - this symbol is turned on every time there is something wrong with the Anti-Lock Brake System. this is initially activated when the engine is first started but will turn off after a few seconds. 5.

Amber warning light on ford focus
Bad switch, somewhere, OR... a dorr is ajar. The Trunk Switch has a real problem with the Focus in that it is does not fully close due to dirt or corros…ion. Suggest Synthetic grease with a brush all over the sliding parts. You will see 2 wires Black and Red leading to the Latch of the Trunk and these are the wires that the Alarm and Warning Light sense from. You might also have a problem with opening the trunk due to the same problem. Hope this helps.
Airbag system fault or air bag / seat pretensioner fired. If both the seat belt and air bag warning lights are on it could be that one of the plugs under the front seats has… come away from its socket. Look under the front of the front seats and you'll find the plug and socket.

Look in your car manual and it will tell you what each symbol means. For example, check gauges light could be low on gas or oil.
lights on a f250 a wreanch what does it mean
There are a number of lights on the Ford Fiesta dashboard, and the owner's manual will have descriptions of all of them. Without more information, that is the only answer pos…sible.
A malfunction with the Anti-lock Braking System has been detected ( as long as the red brake light doesn't come on in your dash you still have " normal " braking… ) It could be a fuse , a sensor , or some other problem . In my case the first ABS fuse that I checked was not installed all the way , I touched the fuse with my finger , heard a click , and the ABS light went out . Just lucky I guess , but also suspicious of how that could have happened
If the " BRAKE " warning light comes on in your dash either the BRAKE FLUID LEVEL IS LOW in the brake fluid reservoir located in the engine compartment … of your 1995 Ford Mustang or the parking / emergency brake is engaged
In Ford Fiesta
its the e c u light .
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.
