If you lose engine oil pressure:
1.
Pull off the road as soon as safely possible.
2.
Shut off the engine immediately. If you do not stop the
engine as soon as safely possible, severe engine damage
could result.
3.
Check the engine’s oil level, following the instructions on
checking and adding engine oil in this Owner Guide. (See
Engine oil
in the Index.) If you do not follow these
instructions, engine damage could result. To ensure an
accurate reading, your vehicle should be on level ground.
4.
If the level is low, add only as much oil as necessary to
bring it to the full level before you start the engine again.
Do not overfill. Do not operate the engine if the light is on,
regardless of the oil level. Contact your nearest dealer for
further service actions.
High Beam Light
This light illuminates when the headlamps are turned to high
beam or when you flash the lights.
If the high beam light flashes in a vehicle equipped with the
Daytime Running Light (DRL) system (Canada), it indicates a
failure in the DRL circuit. Check the bulbs and fuses or have
the DRL system checked by your dealer or a qualified service
technician.
Controls and Features
53
Fog Lamps (If equipped)
The fog lamps act as a supplement to the low beam headlamps
under limited visibility conditions such as rain, snow, dust or
fog.
The fog lamps operate only when the low beam headlamps are
on. To operate the fog lamps, turn the headlamp control knob
to the second position (headlamps on) and pull the knob out.
An indicator lamp will glow when the fog lamps are on.
To turn off, push the headlamp control knob in.
To maximize fog lamp bulb life, it is recommended that the fog
lamp switch be turned off after each use prior to turning off the
headlamps.
Daytime Running Light System
(Canadian vehicles only)
The Daytime Running Light (DRL) system is designed to turn
the high beam headlamps on, with a reduced light output and
without illuminating the high beam indicator lamp in the
instrument panel. The DRL system operates when all of the
following conditions are met:
The vehicle’s parking brake is fully released.
The vehicle is “running.”
The headlamp system is in the OFF position.
The high beam indicator light on the instrument cluster will not
be on.
A flashing high beam light in the instrument cluster indicates a
failure in the DRL system circuit, like a burnt bulb or fuse.

Air Bag Supplemental Restraint System
(SRS)
Important Air Bag Precautions
Your vehicle is equipped with a supplemental restraint system
designed to work with the safety belts to help protect you and
your right front seat passenger in the event of a collision. The
Air Bag Supplemental Restraint System is primarily designed to
reduce certain upper body injuries.
R
WARNING
All occupants of the vehicle, including the driver, should
always wear their safety belts, failure to do so may
increase the risk of personal injury in the event of a
collision.
R
WARNING
The right front passenger air bag is not designed to
restrain occupants in the center front seating position.
R
WARNING
Do not place objects or mount equipment on or near the
air bag covers that may come into contact with an
inflating air bag. Failure to follow these instructions may
increase the risk of personal injury in the event of a
collision.
R
WARNING
Do not attempt to service, repair, or modify the air bag
Supplemental Restraint System or its fuses. See your
Ford or Lincoln-Mercury dealer.

4.
Turn the ignition key to the ON position for a few seconds,
then turn it to the OFF position.
5.
Check under the vehicle again for leaking fuel.
If you see or
smell fuel, do not start your vehicle again.
If you do not
see or smell fuel, you can try to start your vehicle again.
Fuses, Circuit Breakers and Relays
Fuses, circuit breakers, and relays protect your vehicle’s
electrical system from overloading. If electrical parts in your
vehicle are not working, the system may have been overloaded
and blown a fuse or relay, or tripped a circuit breaker. Before
you replace or repair any electrical parts, check the appropriate
circuit protector.
The following charts tell you which circuit protector protects
each electrical part of your vehicle. If a fuse blows or a circuit
breaker opens a circuit, all the parts of your vehicle that use the
circuit will not work.
Once you have determined which fuses or circuit breakers to
check, follow the procedures under
Checking and replacing fuses
or
Checking and replacing circuit breakers
later in this chapter.
R
WARNING
Always remove the key from the ignition before working
on or replacing fuses.

Checking and Replacing Fuses
1.
Use the charts to decide which fuse you should check.
2.
On the fuse panel decal located on the cover of the power
distribution box or on the end of the instrument panel fuse
panel, find the number of the fuse you want to check.
3.
Find the corresponding fuse and remove it with the fuse
pulling tool that is provided.
4.
Check the fuse to see if it is blown. Look through the clear
side of the fuse to see if the metal wire inside is separated. If
it is, the fuse should be replaced.
158
5.
Replace the fuse with one that has the right amperage rating.
See the following chart.

R
WARNING
Always replace a fuse with one that has the specified
amperage rating. Using a fuse with a higher amperage
rating can cause severe wire damage and could start a
fire.

Circuit Breakers
If you need to check a circuit breaker that is on the instrument
panel fuse panel, see
Checking and replacing fuses
to find out how
to locate the fuse panel and pull it down.
Diagnostic equipment is needed to check circuit breakers. Refer
to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Circuit breakers will reset themselves and allow the electrical
parts to work again once the overload on the circuit is gone. If
the circuit breakers continue to cut off electricity, have your
vehicle’s electrical system checked.
If you replace a circuit breaker, use one with the same
amperage rating. To remove a circuit breaker mounted in the
fuse panel, grip it with your finger and thumb and pull it
straight out of its socket.
Changing a Tire
If you get a flat tire while you are driving, do not apply the
brake heavily. Instead, gradually decrease the speed. Hold the
steering wheel firmly and slowly move to a safe place on the
side of the road. Park on a level spot, turn off the ignition, set
the parking brake, and turn on the hazard flashers.
The Temporary Spare Tire
You may have a high pressure temporary spare tire. This spare
tire is smaller than a regular tire and is designed for emergency
use only. Use it only when you get a flat tire and replace it as
soon as you can. This spare tire is marked with the words
“TEMPORARY USE ONLY” so that you can easily identify it.
