I had the same problem with my 2001 windstar. It turned out to be a problem with the intake manifold. The bolts holding the manifold down had loosened over time, allowing air to come in. Watch the intake manifold while having some on press on the accelerator. If the manifold cover moves, it is allowing air to come in and will cause the check engine light problem you are getting. Hope this suggestion helps.

You would think but not the case. There was a tech bulletin released on the too lean and too rich codes. Replace your MAF sensor. It's very easy to do. It's right behind the air filter houseing and is in line with the air intake. It's the thing with the wire harness attached.

May be I'm wrong, but is the name as found in other Ford owner manual. It's a warning icon, like a "lamp on" with an "!" inside.

Ah, that would be the master cylinder. Your brake light.
First, check to see that your emergency brake is released. Next check the brake fluid level. If everything there is fine then change the brake pads (if needed). Next to check would be the brake lines and master cylinder. You maywant to have a technician check the brakes, brake lines, and master cylinder unless you have done it before.

No it's not Brake icon, brake is red one and I know it. My unknow light is lightly yelow and it is in the right lower corner of the instrument cluster (windstar 2001). In a Taurus 2003 owners manual is referred as Master Lighting switch but my lights and sw seems to work properly.
Thanks for the help
