SOURCE: bleeding abs brakes
WARNING: Brake fluid contains polyglycol ethers and polyglycols. Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. If brake fluid contacts eyes, flush eyes with running water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists. If taken internally, drink water and induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately.
CAUTION: Do not allow the brake master cylinder reservoir to run dry during the bleeding operation. Keep the brake master cylinder reservoir filled with the specified brake fluid. Never reuse the brake fluid that has been drained from the hydraulic system.
CAUTION: Brake fluid is harmful to painted and plastic surface's. If brake fluid is spilled onto a painted or plastic surface, immediately wash it with water.
NOTE: When any part of the hydraulic system has been disconnected for repair or installation of new components, air can get into the system and cause spongy brake pedal action. This requires bleeding of the hydraulic system after it has been correctly connected. The hydraulic system can be bled manually or with pressure bleeding equipment.

this is a simple job of adjusting the rod on the end of the servo that pushes the master cylinder .remove master cylinder and with help push the brake pedal down and then screw the end of the shaft in a mm or so .This will cure your problem.

physically remove the tires and inspect the brake pads even wiggle them as well as make sure they are tight and fitted properly also do you hear any kind of grinding ? if so your wheel bearing could be going bad ..

The 2001 windstar does not have a recall on the ABS. There is a TSB but this is just a message to help out the repairer, its not a free warranty repair. The only recall you most likely have open is the speed control recall which is not associated with the ABS concerns common to the windstar.

All fluids I'm sure were checked. They all checked run out(rotor warpage). 2 tires!! That's what gives us technicians a bad name.....bad parts changers! Kids who do nothing more than throw parts at cars until it's fixed or you have no more money! I digress. the problem is going to be a faulty module. There are 3 sensors for wheels speed. There is also a sensor in the front of the master cylinder(open the hood and you can see it) that you need to make sure is not leaking. This is the sensor for the cruise so when you apply the brake, it kicks the cruise off. If no ABS lights are on, the system believes everything is fine. Obviously stock size wheels and tires. Looking at the wiring diagrams only reinforces my diagnosis. Epecially when you say that you took out the fuse. Replace the module. Let me know if you need anything else.
