    Don't concern yourself, you are not the only one. LOL
    I have done that myself many times before.

    BTW, when performing the LED test, both the auto start/stop and frost warning icons are the only ones that blink.
    I am not sure but that may indicate that are not used.

    How do you perform the LED test?

    In car, press and hold the trip reset button.
    Continue to hold the trip reset button and press the start button (or turn key).
    You do not need to start the car, so foot on clutch is not needed.
    Continue to hold the trip reset button for about 10 seconds.
    Instrument cluster will go into diag mode.
    Release the trip reset button then press to step through the tests.
    First test is gauge sweep.
    Second is LED test.

    UPDATE on This Icon



    I contacted my friend, the shop foreman at my dealer.
    He looked in all the manuals that they have and asked everyone that he could.
    They do not have an answer and could find no info on it.
    He has put in a call to Ford Engeneering, so I hope to have proper answer soon.

    I have worked with guy for many years and he will not let this go because now I have stumped him.

    Even the Ford Engineering Rep. did not have a definitive answer and he was not interested to look into it further.

    I continued to ask around more and as was stated before it might be for some kind of global locking.
    I just don't understand why there would be a need for an icon for global locking when no one should be in the car.

    Maybe it was cheaper just to leave in there versus removing it?

    Vaguely remember something about police being able to remotely disable a vehicle. Was that the EU?

    I'd second that guess behind my original speculation about some "OnStar" like system being able to remotely un/lock a vehicle.
