The instrument cluster located on your Ford’s dashboard is equipped with warning lamps and indicators that allow you to easily monitor your vehicle’s condition and control settings. Upon starting your vehicle, you may see some of these indicators light up as a routine check to verify functionality. These lights may simply be indicating a vehicle control setting, e.g., Front Fog Lamps On. If certain indicators were to remain illuminated while your engine is running, however, they could be alerting you to a serious condition. To take the guesswork out of interpreting these signals, scroll down to our visual glossary, which displays the full array of warning lamp and indicator symbols, and defines their function.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Speed control system indicator light changes color to show system mode:
- On (white light): illuminates when the adaptive cruise control system is turned on. Turns off when speed control system is turned off.
- Engaged (green light): illuminates when adaptive cruise control system is engaged (or actively in use); turns off when speed control system is disengaged.
