2001 Windstar LX

I have a couple of questions about a van my wife and I recently purchased.

1. The gas cap and emissions lights are on. When we test drove the van the gas cap light came on, once we left the dealer the emissions light came on. I read the manual and found out that if the gas cap is not tightened it can cause the emissions light to come on. I have made sure the gas cap is tightened. How long will it take for the lights to go off?

2. The van came with fog lights, this is a really stupid question, but, how do we turn them on? I know I am probably going to have my man card taken away from me for asking this question, but this is the nicest vehicle we have ever had and we have never had a vehicle with fog lights before.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Mike

1. - the light will shut off around 50-100 restarts. The dealer can clear the code for you, or take it to autozone and they'll tell you what it is at no charge.

2. - check out the headlight switch, you should be able to pull it out (with the lights on) to turn on the fogs..or it'll be on the turn indicator stalk. it'll state it in the owners manual as well *takes Mike's man card*
