    Default upshift arrow light

    Hi There!

    I'm new to this forum, so hello! Also, I have a 2004 Automatic Ford Focus wagon, and just today an arrow light (orange) on the dashboard came on.

    Based on some internet research, people keep mentioning that the light is telling me to "shift up", but I can't really shift in an automatic, obviously.

    I also keep hearing scary things about the transmission... EEK.

    Does anyone have an idea what could be going on? It should be noted that I have had no issues with the car whatsoever.

    Hmmm.... that seems very odd. It was actually an arrow pointing up? Not like an exclamation point in a sunburst shape, right?

    Yeah no. It was definitely an arrow pointing up.

    It's odd the upshift light will come on with an automatic vehicle.

    You say that you keep hearing scary things about the transmission. Are you talking about what can go wrong with it, or are you hearing noises right now?

    Sorry, I should have clarified- I am hearing scary things about what could go wrong with the transmission after googling "upshift arrow on ford focus".

    Otherwise no- the car seems to be running just fine- no noises.

    I'm honestly stumped. When I type in that phrase in my Google toolbar, the only real hits come up with how the upshift light is supposed to work. In my years here on FJ, I haven't heard of this issue.

    I can move this to our Shift It section. To better help everyone understand your problem better, what engine do you have in your car? How many miles are on it? Have you had any transmission servicing done on the vehicle?
