A trip to the dealer may be in order, I hate electrical issues, to many variables, or maybe I'm just an idiot! Lol.. Good luck hopefully you get an answer

It isn't affecting the car at all, thought it was just a little weird that I've never seen a light come on the dash when driving besides the fuel light and parking brake light. All the lights come on when the key is on accessory. So was just wondering if anyone had the same issue it is 04 GT

I don't believe the '04s had a TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System), I know I didn't when I had my '05 GT, which would be why you didn't get a Low Tire Pressure warning. As for your other dashboard symbology, I would try to purposefully make each one come on to be sure that they are working, I.E. set your parking brake and see if the Brake symbol comes on.

Well that helps about the tire pressure lol, and yeah the parking brake works and the seatbelt one works and obv the low fuel works. So I guess they all work lol I was just wondering why the tire pressure wouldn't come on when it was at 9LBs lol. The only other one is I have never seen the oil light come on and it has gotten down to 1/4 quart of oil. All the others seem to be good. Thank you for all your help

There is actually a trick to make all your lights show up. All you have to do is hold your trip odometer button, turn your key to the on position but don't start it, it will take about 5 seconds for it to enter and it will first go thru a gauge sweep. Then hit the trip button again and it will do a dash light test. It will even tell you your distance to empty (DTE) but you will have to hit it several more times. Hope this helps
