Help my 95 ford windstar alarm or horn starts when I am driving and take a curve. What could it be and is it expensive?


It sounds like the wiring between the horn button on the steering wheel and the dashboard is chafing. The insulation has been slowly rubbed off due to movement of the steering wheel. This is the only point between the moving parts (steering wheel) and non-moving parts (steering column). When the steering wheel is turned, the wiring contacts other metal and simulates the horn button being pressed.

It shouldn't be an expensive repair - but contacting your trusted local mechanic will remove any questions. If you do not have a regular mechanic, check with several to to make sure you're getting a fair cost estimate.

I hope this helps & good luck!

HAVE A SEVERE VIBRATION IN MY FORD WINDSTAR...


2000 Ford Windstar shakes, wildly at times. Seems to get less noticeable the faster it is driven, but the engine looks like it is having an epileptic fit while idling. No check engine light on. PCV hose seems to be fine. Spark plugs replaced. What can it be?

When bought engine idled @ 800 rpm when warm, now engine lite is on and engine idles rough @ 500 to 600 RPM. Replaced rack and pinion, power steering, checked wires, replaced sparkplugs, # 1 plug was in...


could be numerous reasons. this is your best bet take it in to a mechanic and have your engine codes scanned. it is a minimal charge, some even do it for nothing it only takes 10 minutes.this will point you in the right direction.

Why is my 1997 Ford Escort steering wheel making a grinding noise when it is turned (it is not power asisted steering)?


There are two bearings in the steering column. One or both may be bad. The most likely problem would be the lower bearing. While someone is turning the steering wheel look under the hood at the bottom of the steering column and see if it is rotating smoothly or kind of jumpy. You might have to place your hand on it to feel if it is smooth or jumpy (make sure the engine is off and the exhaust is not hot).

My 2003 Ford Windstar whines when turning the steering wheel.


The power steering pump has gone bad. Consider replacing it because if serviced it will still show this sign in a little while.

Good luck.

95 ford windstar dies when i turn the steering wheel hard


windstar has a pressure switch on the pressuer line to the rack and pinion, squeeze the plug and pull up to disconect it and see if it happens again. you might have a short in one of these wires or the switch ... to reach the switch it is mounted on top of the power steering rack so reach down behind the motor on the driver side or crawl under and reach up on driver side
