Engine light came on...?

Just got the truck yesterday, had 8876 miles on it, and the engine light came on today. Currently has 9021 miles. Any idea what it is? Guess I'm calling the dealer tomorrow!!:shrug: Other than that, I love the truck!:Thumbup:

It could be a code for "thermostat stuck open". Apparantly Ford is starting to have a problem with this code, but nothing is really wrong with the truck. Dealer says they dont have a cure for it yet, and it could happen again. That happend to me today. They just cleared the code and I was on my way.

Now, it turns on and off when it feels like it. Sometimes when I start the truck, it comes on. Sometimes after a few miles...to the dealer Monday morning!!
