My ABS light is on and the ABS keeps going off when I push my brakes. Can I just change the ABS fuse to start? I didn't want to take it to a mecanic to be charged $50. to check it out only to find out it's...

You should pay about $80.00 to diagnose the ABS System failure
More to repair if there is a problem

Fuses don't fix anything
Fuses don't get bad
Fuses protect circuits, from overheating, due to high current loads or a short to ground.
If a fuse blows,replacing it, just cause another to blow,until problem is corrected

Can i bypass the abs system on my 98 ford windstar

Are you wanting to discontinue the abs? If so, then keep in mind that you will no longer have abs. The brakes will still function the same without abs. In order to "bypass" the abs system, locate the main fuse/control box under hood. There should be either a relay or large fuse marked for abs. If so, simply remove the fuse/relay.

99 Ford windstar ABS light coming on and blowing fuse under dash. The problem is that the fuse also works the speedometer! Please help: where is the abs mod? and how can i fix this. Thank for any help!

Check the connector at the ABS unit. There have been some problems where the brake pressure switch leaks, the brake fluid runs down the wires right to the ABS connector, and creates a short. If this is the case, you'll have to replace the pressure switch kit and the ABS connector.

Brakes and fuse

did you replace and/or resurface the rotors??
a warped rotor will cause vibration and/or pulsating in the pedal!!
fuse # 16 is for cigar lighter/ flasher relays!!

2000 ford windstar... electrical mess!!

one reason for that fuse to blow is a bad brake pressure switch on the master cylinder. could be a
warranty/recall item. can also leak brake fluid. also check behind each wheel for any sign of brake fluid,
particularly the rear wheels if you have rear drum brakes. fixed one here recently where the vehicle's jack
came loose in the right rear compartment and short that circuit. make sure your jack is stowed properly.

good luck

Brake switch fuse keeps blowing

replace your brake pressure switch on the master cylinder and that should take care of your problem.

Blown fuses

The problem is simple and you could possibly repair it yourself. the sensor on the brake master cylinder (front side protruding down from the bottom) is shorted out. This sensor turns off the cruise control when the brakes are pushed. You only have to unscrew the old sensor and replace it with the new one. You will notice that the old sensor has has brake fluid all through out it. this is the reason for the short. BTW you will lose a little brake fluid in the process so have the new sensor ready when you take off the old sensor. I know this doesnt sound like it could possibly be the reason but it is. hope it helps
