The ABS light is coming on because the Red brake light is on. This is the saftey feature built in. The ABS will disable it self if red light is on. You are either low on brake fluid or the float is sticking in the master cylinder reservior.

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.

2003 Ford Windstar Van, ABS and Brake lights have come on, any ideas on cause and solution?


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.

1996 Ford Windstar 3.8L, Brake light is on-brakes work fine


Abs light on means the ABS sytem has a fault.
You can determine what is wrong by counting the flashes (they say) and then put the data in on the web.

IE abs, windstar, failure, 3 flashes.

The brake light on is most likely picking up on uneven brake pressure, or a failing master cylinder/
You may not feel any difference yet, give it a little time, feel for a pedal fade at a light.

I have a 2003 ford windstar 2003 and very frequently the ABS and Brake lights turn on for a long period of time. I already checked the breaks system and everything is right. I don't know what else can be...


if you have noise coming from the pads sometimes this is caused by dust, an easy fix is to take to the car wash and pressure wash the wheels to remove the dust.
as for the intermittent abs light may be a bad level sensor for the reservoir. which would in any a need for immediate repair, so that real problems will be evident and you will not just ignore the light.
