Which model? There is a standard design language for warning lights. The only ones which shouldn't be immediately obvious are (1) the one with a picture of an engine, and (2) one with a box with squiggly lines coming out of it. (1) The first one is a general fault warning. If this is coming on after the engine has been started, it means the vehicle's on-board computer has detected an error, or one of the many sensors which monitor the operation of the engine is not working properly. Basically, this means you'll need to take the car in to the dealer. They can hook their diagnostic computer up to your car and look for error codes stored in the vehicle computer's memory - this will tell them what the problem is. Hold on to your wallet, it could be in for a bumpy ride. (2) The second one (I think) is an Exhaust Temperature warning. Again, take the car in to be checked, sooner rather than later. Other lights are the various systems' self-check indicators. These are usually lableed "SRS" (the SRS airbag system), and "ABS" (the anti-lock braking system). there may be others. These should come on briefly when the engine is first started, then go out a few seconds later. If they don't, or of they come on during driving, these systems may be faulty. Again, have the car checked out.
There are several warning lights on a 1997 Grand Am. Some of the warning lights are the ABS system, oil lights, and the check engine light.
Check out the owners manual Can you explain what the light looks like?
If the warning lights come on when you start the car, but then go back off, there is no reason for alarm. However, if the lights stay on, or come on when you are driving you should probably stop driving as soon as you can and take the car to the mechanic.

To replace the dashboard lights on the 1997 F-150, you will first need to remove the dash bezel and dash cover in order to access the lights.

Brake lights and turn signals are on a separate circuit from the tail lights. Tail lights are on the same circuit with the dashboard lights. If the dashboard lights aren't working either, check the fuse. If they ARE working, check the headlight switch.
look for the problem in the ignition switch.
I own a 1997 Isuzu Rodeo and had the same problem. I went to a local Isuzu new-car dealer and was quoted a price in excess of $100 to replace the burned-out dashboard lights. I was told that the cost is high because the top of the dashboard has to be removed in order to obtain access to the lights. I did not have the lights replaced. carlpers
