Try pumping the brakes 3 or 4 times with the truck running in 'park'.

The light resets itself in our '01 Tahoe because it's a float switch. Recheck the fluid level.

Reply back if that doesn't do it.

    Was it low? And have you checked the sensor? And the reservoir is filled to the fill line as well, correct?

    Pull it out of the reservoir and turn it upside down. If the light stays on, then the sensor is probably bad. If it goes off, I'll have to dig into this deeper.

    Reply what you find.

Ford explorer trac 2007 change the oil and filter and now have a wrench light on ,how resolve the problem


Sounds like you need to reset your Oil life/ maintenance reminder light. (also, double check your oil level)

To reset Oil life on a standard dash stlye:
1. pres and release the TRIP/RESET button until the message center displays SETUP MENU HOLD RESET
2. Press and hold the TRIP/RESET button for 2 seconds until the message center displays RESET FOR SYS CHECK
3. press and hold the TRIP/RESET button for 2 seconds until the message center displays OIL LIFE xx% RESET IF NEW
4. Press and release the TRIP/RESET button until the message center displays HOLD RESET IF NEW OIL
5. Press and hold TRIP/RESET button for 2 seconds and release to reset oil life to 100%
6. Message center will briefly display OIL CHANGE SET TO 100%


With a message center cluster the procedure is as follows:
1. press and release SETUP button until message center displays PRESS RESET TO BEGIN SYSTEM CHECK
2. Press and release RESET button until the message center displays HOLD RESET IF NEW OIL
3. Press and hold RESET button for 2 seconds and release to reset the oil life to 100%
4. The message center displays SETUP MENU HOLD RESET


Hope this is what you need/ are looking for. Goodluck & let me know how it goes, or if you have a different problem.

My check engene light bulb is out, and i need to replace ot before my inspection... Need to know where the bulb is loacted to replace?


The check engine light is located in the message center right above the instrument cluster. To remove it you will need to jest remove the a pillar trim. Those are the plastic pieces that run from the ceiling down to the dash on both sides. Then you will need to remove the upper dash pannel. It is held in by clips. Gently pry up and it will start to release the clips. Once the upper dash panel is out you will see the screws that hold the message center in place. Remove the screws, remove the message center, and replace the bulbs. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

Low coolant temp light


STOP DRIVING!!!!.... if you have no coolant in the system you can ruin your engine.... if there is coolant inside the cabin then it is your heater core that is leaking.... it is difficult ot change on some vehicles becuase it is in the dash but still possible for the backyard mechanic.... you should be able to find one for about $100 but there is alot of labour involved...

Clearing service message on dash


Turn the ignition to position 1 Push and hold trip reset while holding. Turn to position 2 hold trip reset till the service light flashes 3 times and then release. You should hear a beep to let you know it is reset. It might take you 2 times sometimes. If you have the message in the text window the little triangle in the center of the speedo assy. will flash. Also another trick to help you is when the milage returns the light should be reset.

Wife just called and said "a square orange light just came on on the upper left side of the dash." I can't visualize the dash warning lights and trying to figure out which one it is. Battery,...


Without knowing the year of your truck, I'm assuming that it is a 2000 or newer and has a message center on the left side of the of the instrument panel.

If it was an orange square, with no writing in it, then it was probably the Battery warning light, which illuminates when there is a problem with the charging system. The engine coolant light would more than likely be a message that says TEMP, and the check engine light would be shaped like an engine (both would be in the message center).
