It's just above the check engine light and looks like a soda bottle cap..well a pop top style...mabye I had better say it looks like a gear with an exclamation point running through it and it is illuminated yellow.

Manual says...

Multi-function: Automatic
transaxle/cooling system (On
SPI, Zetec E or automatic
transaxle vehicles only):
Momentarily illuminates when the
ignition is turned to the ON position and the engine is off. If the light
illuminates while driving, have your vehicle serviced.

My SVT is a manual shift.So is the SE.WTF?

How's your temp gauge? If it's high you could have a coolant leak. I had one before on my '02 ZX3, and I believe a similar light (if not the same one) lit up.

Check for coolant under the car. Also double check if everything tighten down in the engine bay.

i had this light come on once...
I had this light come on (on my 02 Focus SVT) a while ago, but it wasnt while driving. i was running diagnostics on the car with a Snap-on "brick" scanner (graphing-capable ODB II scanner) and the process was interrupted. which seems to have caused the same light to turn on. That was the only time i ever saw it on, and after resetting the computer it hasnt happened again.

is this useful information? were you actually DRIVING when it turned on?

has it come on again since? [dunno]
