I bought a 97 Taurus and there is a red LED type light which is located on the dash just a few inches from the headlight switch. And it stays illuminated all the time. Any idea what it is?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

There is nothing in the manual that
indicates what it is.  Questions to
mechanic at Ford dealership was to
no avail.  Wonder if its some anti
theft equip made to deter theives.

Possibly an aftermarket anti-theft system. Did you run a vehicle history report such as carfax, autocheck, etc.? If that's what it is or perhaps an aftermarket remote start unit it may show the installation on the report. HTH. -Jim
