SOURCE: 2002 ford wind star o/d light started flashing after car wash

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.

SOURCE: 2002 ford windstar check charging system light

Check all fuses, both inside and outside. Use a volt meter to check the output of the alt., by setting the meter to D/C/ volts, put the black wire on battery GROUND and the red wire on the big terminal of the alt.,,, which the wire is held on with a nut and washer, or a lock nut.If your reading is around 12.0 - 12.6,,, try another alt....
If the reading is 13.8 - 14.6 ,, you have a problem between the alt and the battery.
Hope this helps.

Exterior warning lite stays on

The corning light only works when the turn signal is on is normal.
What are you talking about with an exterior warning light ? The light on the dash that tells you one of the exterior lamps is not working ?

2000 ford windstar check charging system light stays on when I just replaced the alternator and the battery, and both have been checked again after installation

If it's a 3.8 it should have a 130 amp alternator. Sounds like you have a 110 amp alternator and not putting out enough amperage. Ecm thinks that since it's only getting 110 amps instead of 130 amps, something is wrong, so it's warning you that there is a problem.

Icon stays on, it looks like a tire with an explation point in the center, is staying on. What does this mean.


That warning light means you have an external light burnt out. To figure out which one, turn on your lights, and have someone walk around!
