With an abs light on it means the antilock brake system is disabled and therefore your brakes could lock up in an emergency braking situation other than that your brakes will work normally. the antilock brake system works on signals from tone rings and sensors that sense if any wheel is slipping locking up or losing traction, there is also a brake pressure modulator. you should be able to pull the codes for the abs auto parts stores should be able to do this for you with a code reader most will do this for free, this will tell you where the problem is. hope this helps

    the only way to tell where the problem with an abs system is through the codes this will tell you where exactly the problem is if you are missing signal at any of your wheels your welcome for just trying

    well im assuming you reset the maintenance light .sometimes fords do this if the brakes feel good and the anti lock operates correctly then dont worry. i would double check my work make sure it correct and then reset the light.

We had a recall 03 windstar ABS light was on all time we had front and back brakes replaced ford checked said rear axle ok but, light is still on and brakes make a terrible noise and sometimes they go to...


I own a 2001 Windstar. Your noisy brake problem could be nothing more that new brakes being broken in. I have done many brake jobs on my 2001 Windstar as well as other vehicles that I have owned. To prevent this problem from occuring, I apply a thin film of Disc Brake Quieter directly to each brake pad during the installation process. This quiets the brakes during the break in period. I hope this helps.

My cruise light is blinking on and off, although cruise is not on, and my check engine and traction control warning lights are illuminated. I just had brakes worked on last week, could they have done...


well the cruise light is blinking probably becuase its telling you its notworking due to the fact the abs/traction lights are on,youre saying you just got a brake job done, i would guess either they unplugged the abs sensor to gain acess to the brakes or the sensor for the abs got dirty when they disrupted the brakes by removeing them to do the brake job, first thing i would do is peek at each wheel and see if the abs sensors are plugged in, if they are the next thing i would do , is remove each of the front sensors and clean them with brake clean or something like that,,the sensors are little magnets and sometimes when working in that area rust and dust and stuff gets on them and interupts the signal and casues all the problems you have list,,,,hope that helps,,,or take it back to where you got the brakes done and tell them about it and they should look at it and maybe fix it for free ,,,

Abs sensor


there is more than likely a piece of rust stuck to one of the front abs wheel speed sensors. this happens during brake service sometimes.

'98 Windstar ABS and traction control lights after getting brakes done


Prior to the brakes being replaced you more than likely had metal to metal contact which can throw metal shavings on the ABS wheel sensors. This metal shavings stick to the road grime on the wheel sensors showing the ABS computer a false reading making the ABS light come on. On Ford Windstars, the ABS light and the traction control light are on the same circuit. A simple (and cheap) fix is to pull the ABS wheel sensors and clean them with brake cleaner or throttle body cleaner. Make sure you dry them well and reinstall. On the Windstar there is one bold holding the sensors to the back of the wheels. I recommend you spray some WD40 on the bold and wait about 10 minutes before removing.
If this doesn't fix the ABS light and brakes, you can have the ABS system diagnosed at a shop for about an hour labor. (Usally about $100)
I have fixed many of these type of problems just by cleaning the ABS wheel sensors. Good luck.
