Do you mean the wires that go to the plug on bottom of master cyl or the plug on the side of master cyl ?
the wires to the plug on the side of the master cyl are to the brake fluid level sensor.
the wires to the plug on bottom of the master cyl are to either a brake pressure switch or a brake pressure transducer.

The ABS is a different computer and there is nothing for the Master cylinder. Some scanners need added programming to read the ABS circuit.

Sensor under front of master cylinder is leaking. what is sensor for


The sensor is for the Cruise Control (Speed Control). When you press the brake pedal, the sensor under the master cylinder deactivates the Cruise Control. There is a recall on those sensors for many years of Windstars and other Fords. The sensor leaks, flows down the wires to the connector, brake fluid gets in the wiring harness and causes a fire.

My 1998 ford windstar abs brake light is on. In the past I had to add brake fluid and in doing so the light went out. I tried that but it continues to burn. Can it be reset?


thats odd. Adding brake fluid shouldn't have kicked on the ABS light..

Low brake fluid would cause your RED parking brake light to come on not the orange ABS light (unless thats what you mean. if thats the case its normal for that light to come on with low fluid. in this case check the brake lines starting to the master cylinder and the components at the wheels to make sure there is no leaks if you go HERE complained about your situation and also noticed a leak on the bottom of the master cylinder (hazardous in more than 1 way) )

not sure of the component locations under the hood of the windstar but check to see if you were bumping wires on the ABS control module when you were putting brake fluid in. may be a loose connection that jiggles loose when you drive.

otherwise it might need a new ABS control module or maybe moisture in one of the components.

98 windstar overdrive flashing


i recommend using a DTC reader to check the codes 1st but i suspect the transmission range sensor. it gives out due to a poorly placed master brake cylinder. the switch leaks and causes electrical problems with the TRS and other units connected in the wireing harness directly below the brake pressure switch.

My air, odometer, speedometer all went out at the same time. is that a fuse?


I just had this trouble. Fuse F-10 will be blown. It is caused by a short in the ABS deactivation switch which is on the front and bottom of the master brake cylinder under the hood. The master brake cylinder is on the drivers side under the hood and is the unit where you add brake fluid. It has a connector with 2 wires on it and when it leaks brake fluid, the 2 wires short out and blow the F10 fuse causing your problem. So check that switch on the bottom front of the master brake cylinder and replace it if you have been losing brake fluid. It fixed my problem.
