Ford windstar instrument control module failing?

I had my 2001 van checked out because the ABS and brake light kept coming on. The mechanic said the instrument control module is failing. He listed several error codes: U1262,B1470, B1246 Is this worth fixing? Can it be fixed?

SOURCE: ABS and brake on 2001 Ford Windstar come on randomly

Do you mean the van is actually braking like a Starsky and Hutch move or that the warning lights indicate that they are on? If its lights then you may be low on brake fluid. Maybe a module leak

Sodometer and speedometer could be vehicle speed sensor. ABS module could cause the other symptom. Do a search on the part number they say is bad. Try this site for repairs http://www.bba-reman.com/catalogue/Products.aspx?category=811

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Windstar Van, ABS and Brake lights have

Something is wrong with the Braking-Traction Control of the vehicle. Your sensor is probably broken. You to need have diagnosed which sensor. Someties this is damaged when lower assembly and replaced. Take it to a professional for diagnosis and repair.

There is a problem with the ABS, (Anti-Lock Brakes). You still have normal braking but your ABS may or may not work properly.

Each wheel has a sensor mounted near the brake discs in the front and drums in the rear. You can see them without even removing the wheels. Look on the inside of the wheels kind of near the ball joint and you will see a small electrical cable. This cable goes to the sensor.

Check it and tell us news.

Sometimes their is a code of no pwer to the ABS module. usually it has power just the module is bad. Also check to make sure that yours isn't leaking brake fluid down the wiring harness to the ABS unit.( under the drivers seat) This is a known recall that can cause the ABS to short out and cause a fire hazard. If it is not leaking it is not part of the recall but look into checking the ABS modulr for power.

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.

My 1998 ford windstar abs brake light is on. In the past I had to add brake fluid and in doing so the light went out. I tried that but it continues to burn. Can it be reset?


thats odd. Adding brake fluid shouldn't have kicked on the ABS light..

Low brake fluid would cause your RED parking brake light to come on not the orange ABS light (unless thats what you mean. if thats the case its normal for that light to come on with low fluid. in this case check the brake lines starting to the master cylinder and the components at the wheels to make sure there is no leaks if you go HERE complained about your situation and also noticed a leak on the bottom of the master cylinder (hazardous in more than 1 way) )

not sure of the component locations under the hood of the windstar but check to see if you were bumping wires on the ABS control module when you were putting brake fluid in. may be a loose connection that jiggles loose when you drive.

otherwise it might need a new ABS control module or maybe moisture in one of the components.
