2007 1.6 Zetec - query about dash warning light - Franco50
I picked up my new car today, a 56-reg Focus 1.6 Zetec. While driving home I spotted a warning light on the dash - it is within the rev counter dial and resembles, for want of a better description, a snowflake shape. Most of the time it glowed amber but a couple of miles from home it turned red. As the car came with no owner's handbook I have no idea what this light signifies. I thought perhaps it may have something to do with the air con but I'm probably wrong. Can someone help please?

Don't know where you are, or what the local temperature is; but it's cold enough here to make an outside temperature ice warning come on.

If I remember rightly the amber lght comes on when outside air temp is +5c.and changes to red at 0c.

My 2005 Focus is only an LX so does not have this warning light.
I used to have a 2001 Mondeo with the same symbol;
From memory it is a warning of the outside temperature, amber from about +5C then it changes to red from +2C and below, to indicate possible icy conditions.
Very useful IMI, hopes this helps.

Thanks for the responses. I bought the car in Edinburgh so your explanations would make sense as the outside temp reading on the dash was between 35-38 deg while I drove home. Its been rather chilly here today! Glad I know the reason now and it is not a fault with the car. Cheers!
