Question wuts the Exclamation mark dash light mean ??

I just installed a ractive short ram intake like a week ago. The CEL didnt come on , and the car ran great. Well last night , i was cruising around and noticed that while in 2nd gear, the car kinda sputtered for a sec. I immediatly looked at the dash, and saw the Exlamation point light on the dash ( its the lil light in the far left corner on an '03). It didnt last but for like half a second, but it caught my attention. It did it again today, just for half a second again, sorta like a lil sputter. Like im accelerating..vroooooom(sputter)vrooooom . wut is going on ??? Maybe the intake ? maybe the ECU isnt reset ?? HELP !!!!!

That Excalmation point is for your Transmission...Have you had the fuel pump recall done?

I don't believe the fuel pump recall was for the 2003.

Reset the ECU again, to make sure. Unbolt the Negative (-) for 10-15 mins, then bolt it back on. Make sure you drive it NORMAL for the first 10 miles or so, and you should be fine.

This light (!) means

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

That is a direct quote out of the FORD FOCUS MANUAL.........
