#1299086 - 08/12/06 10:16 AM

Yesterday I bought a Contour, today some light is on. I don't have a manual so I don't know what the light is.

It's blinking red and is located above the clock area near the 'Contour' logo .... what izzat?!

CEL? Airbag? ABS?

Download an owner's manual from www.fleet.ford.com under Maintenance so you can look it up. Manuals are available for 96-on. Based on your description, it should be the PATS light.

Identify your vehicle, by year, engine, and transmission.

Welcome aboard!

Got the manual, thanks!

And you are right, it is a flashing passive anti-theft system light.

Welcome . The Owners' Manual will have a description of where the Check Engine light is. It should be in Yellow when you turn the keys to on.
