Question about 2002 Ford Windstar Cargo
It may be a dying console (faulty electronics). Never heard of the compass dimming when you press the gas. Does it dim when you are in park and press the gas? If you give the console a gentle tap, does it brighten back up? Do other lights dim?

This sounds decidedly like a faulty or dirty MAF sensor, which is located right next to the air filter box.
Unplug the wiring plug to the MAF and if all or most of the power is restored then you either need to clean or renew the MAF sensor.

Two things that it could be.
1 - Look under the hood, there is a wire coming out of the master cylinder, there was a problem with some of the windstars that leak brake fluid, run down the wires and drip on the neutral safety switch, which would cause the light to come on.
2 - This one solved my problem. It could be the transmission valve body that needs to be updated or changed out. There are many issues with these valve bodies. Slipping from 1-2, OD light blinking, shift 1-2-3-2, late down shift from 3-2. I had all of these.
If you do some work on cars, then you should be able to change out the valve body yourself, with a torque wrench. I picked one up on ebay for $180 with shipping both ways, and took my about 2 hours. My Windstar never drove so good.
-fyi, The OD solenoid is inside the transmission.

Not knowing what engine and drive-train you have I would say it is either be a bad throttle accuator or throttle position sensor . you will need to take it to ford to be scanned

those two codes are for the o2 sensors. both are the upstream sensors on the front and rear banks. so they are desinagted bank 1 sensor 1 and bank 2 sensor 1. them most common cause for this is faulty o2sensors , bad gas and of a poor running engine. so if your car runs good (no misfire) and gas is ok then replace the o2sensor witch is the very most common cause.

NOTE: For optimum calibration, drive to an open, level location away from large metallic objects or structures. Switch off all non-essential electrical accessories (rear window defrost, heater, A/C, map lamps, wipers, etc.) and make sure all doors are shut.
NOTE: To exit the calibration adjustment mode before carrying out a compass adjustment, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
