Your fuel is low. Its telling you to check your gas gauge...
The check engine light is just to the left of your battery voltage gauge in your gauge cluster . When you turn your ignition key to the run position , just before starting your engine , the check engine light should come on momentarily to check the bulb
There is no drive gauge in KH1. Ventusisawesome@khmail.com
Check the oil level, if it is full, you got problems, don't drive it.
On a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer : Overdrive is the normally allowed position , it won't shift into overdrive until the speed is higher anyway ( say 50 MPH / 80 KPH ) If you are towing something , or driving in hilly country where the transmission is constantly down shifting into drive , you want to use the transmission control switch to turn the overdrive off ( located on the end of your gear selector lever ( P RND etcetera ) ( you will see the O/D OFF light come on in your dash just to the right of the oil pressure gauge )
mostly likely something wrong with the sensor or gauge.
Since you had to unplug the wire connector, there is most likely damage to the connector. Check it carefully.
Put a high pressure gauge within the range of circuit pressure in the pump circuit. Lock the final drive sprocket against the frame so that it can't move. Actuate the travel lever and record the reading on the gauge.
