ford dash warning symbols


I just bought a new (secondhand) 1999 Ford Forte and a small symbol lit up on the dash that said DTE followed by some beeps. Can anyone tell me what this means and also, if I bought a manual would it have all of these symbols in it?

DTE= Distance to empty.It will beep if the fuel level is low.

Re: ford dash warning symbols

It's not in the Haynes manual but it will be in the genuine Ford one. It should also be in your owner's handbook in the glovebox. I suspect it's a low fuel warning (Distance to Empty).
