I do not have a manual so i can't figure out what fuse is what. my ac,inside lights, speedometer,and odomitor, and when the car is not on the doors work but when the car is on i can't open my side doors. what to do?
You can go to the ford fleet website and download a owners manual.
pages 183-189 talk about fuses and tell you what they are and the correct fuse amp to use.
I too had some of the problems you are experiencing. my speedometer and odometer quit working and the abs light came on and aldo my cruise control quit.
I replaced the fuse and that fixed everything at once.
I hope this helps.

I have a 2000 Windstar so maybe I can help. You say you checked all fuses - that would be all five in the central junction box. If you check 20A fuse 2 and replace it you should get your instrument cluster lights back. Also check 20A fuse 17 which feeds the data bus that supplies information to the various gauges and indicators
replacing the speedometer cable will not fix your problem , your problem is the dash gauge it self on the windstar there is a magnet inside a small metal dish that controls the speedometer when the magnet fails it begins to catch the metal dish randomly , ... witch makes the speedometer go crazy
fuse #10 in the fuse box inside the van under the dash this fuse will be blown HOWEVER the reason the fuse is blown is your real problem
the most likely cause is the reduntant bps on the master cylinder just unplug it and the fuse should stop blowing.
you can replace it if you want.
be very carefull of leaking brakefluid on harness below this sensor if brakefluid has leaked into harness and is not attended too it can cause major problems.
I had the same problem with my 2000 Windstar. It ended up being a brake fluid leak around a sensor on the master cylinder. The sensor is a known issue and has been redesigned. The brake fluid dripped onto some elctrical connections causing fuses to blow. The sensor turns off the cruise control when the brakes are pressed. On some vehicles it was known to cause fires and Ford had to provide a recall. At the time my Windstar was not covered in the recall but it may be now.
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
