Break light is always on

Hello. I have a Ford Windstar 2001. I have it for about 8 months now. Aroud4 months ago, I noticed that the brakes light on the boad keeps on all the time. Before it was not. Also the emission light is always on, even when I got that vehicle. Is there any solution to correct those lights. I will really appreciate any help.


With regards,
Imranovsky

Do a visual on your brake system check brake pad wear look at the roters if they have grooves remove and see if you can have them turned also check wheel cylinders for damadge via wetness in that area . But first check the mastercylinder to see if you've got enough brake fluid in it. good luck

Having two problems, wont start in park, have to put into neutral to start, also no brake lights, fuses are fine. Help please. 2001 ford windstar


Look at the top of your Brake pedal for a switch. It needs to send a signal for the brake lights and the release of the gearshift/starter solenoid lockout.

Drivers feet often move or break this switch and a good indication the problem is there is having no brake lights.

It is a bit odd that you can move the gearshift at all without the signal from the brake switch. The idea of having these extra parts is to prevent the van from starting without your foot on the brake or getting out of Park without your foot on the brake.

So you may have to fix more than just the brake switch. There may be a misalignment or broken part on the shifter lockout.

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.

We have a 2001 Ford Windstar and noticed today that none of the rear lights are working. Is there a fuse that may have blown for this to happen all at once or something else?


There is brake switch that is located on the brake oedal bracket, just to the right of the steering column mount. Youl need to remove the left side under dash panel to get to the switch and connector.
If the brake lights are inoperative, check the fuse.
If fuse is Ok, check the voltage at the light bulb socket when switch is not presed and when is presed. If there is no voltage back to the light bulb replace brake switch.

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

2000 ford winstar brake lights


Most likely you don't need a new break light switch, its just out of ajustment, some have threads where you can screw it in and out in the bracket that holds it, thats for ajustment, it should be just above the break peddel under dash it will have a electrical plug going to it, just unplug it to move it back and forth for ajustment, it works off the break peddel arm, it has a plunger that goes in and out thats what activates the break lights.
