SOURCE: Fuse keeps blowing

Greetings..hopefully we can help or at least isolate the issue. You need to know that there was a few recalls with the cruise control system which is involved.. speedo and odometer is possibly in that circuit..but I am sure the ac had a separate fuse and relay...I do not have a book or schematics here. ,,I would disconect the wires to the ac compressor taking that out of the cause... I would also disconnect the cruise control wire to the unit and drive aroud for a day or so to see what happens. This is whats known as isolate and test . It may take some time but it will give you answers to what is the cause and then check that system out with us. At least you will have it narrowed down...ps ..do not forget at when it happens and what type of roadway ( bumpy, soft, wet, snow) as it all plays a part in diagnostics. I hope this helped.

For the abs light it needs to be scanned to see which sensor is not working.
Try to clean the sensor first if it doesn't help it need to be replaced.

2000 ford windstar has a bad stumble when idling like it's missing accelerates fine when reaches cursing speed acks like it's missing also my cruise control stoped working


If your Windstar has the 3.8 liter engine, you are due for head gasket replacement. Just had mine done. The cruise control failure could be due to an open fuse or speed sensor failure.

Odometer not working in 98 windstar


If the speedometer does work, but the odometer doesn't work, then you have a bad speedometer head assembly. The speedo head is a microprocessor that gathers the info coming from the vehicle speed sensor and translates it for you on the speedo and the odo. If one is working, but the other isn't, then it is getting the VSS signal, it just isn't processing it right. You could also be experiencing the below issue: The Brake Pressure Differential Deactivation Switch (SCDS) (2B264) located under the Master Cylinder (Behind the Air Filter) over time develops a leak. This causes a short and a fuse trip, fuse #10 if the engine is on. This leak also causes brake fluid to wick down two wires to the ABS brake module (2C219). The fluid accumulates on the (always on) power connectors for the ABS brake system which are powered by fuses 101 and 102 and are both 40 amp. The fluid attacts moisture, road salt and leads to a fire when the fluid and moisture act as conductor between the hot leads and ground. This switch has been the subject of other Ford Recalls, just not the Windstar van yet. Below is a picture of the switch in question. Notice the fluid that leaked on the part below it. This switch will cause cruise control problems, speedometer, odometer and ABS brake system problems.

Where is the speedometer sencer


on the passenger side of transmission where the cv axle comes out. They don't usually go bad. See if you cruise works, if it does the sensor is working and the speedo is bad.

2000 ford windstar


you can go to the ford fleet website and download a owners manual.
pages 183-189 talk about fuses and tell you what they are and the correct fuse amp to use.
I too had some of the problems you are experiencing. my speedometer and odometer quit working and the abs light came on and aldo my cruise control quit.
I replaced the fuse and that fixed everything at once.
I hope this helps.
here is the website just enter the information and you are there.
