Question about 2001 Ford Windstar

ABS and brake on 2001 Ford Windstar come on randomly

I have a 2001 Ford Windstar and the ABS and e-brake lights come on - but if you shut the car off and restart it, they go off, but will come back on - sometimes in a day or two, sometimes much sooner. Had van scanned - not giving any codes.

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

Alternator ,battery or fuse

Probably the battery. Take it off the car and take it to Auto Zone and they will test it for free.
