Two things that it could be.
1 - Look under the hood, there is a wire coming out of the master cylinder, there was a problem with some of the windstars that leak brake fluid, run down the wires and drip on the neutral safety switch, which would cause the light to come on.
2 - This one solved my problem. It could be the transmission valve body that needs to be updated or changed out. There are many issues with these valve bodies. Slipping from 1-2, OD light blinking, shift 1-2-3-2, late down shift from 3-2. I had all of these.
If you do some work on cars, then you should be able to change out the valve body yourself, with a torque wrench. I picked one up on ebay for $180 with shipping both ways, and took my about 2 hours. My Windstar never drove so good.
-fyi, The OD solenoid is inside the transmission.

    I forgot to add, make sure that you get the valve body with the updated parts (Sonnax or similar).

The OD solenoid got wet this should be ok after it dries out. This could take sometime. Lift the hood and let it dry out if the weather is hot. This will have to be replaced. This is the solenoid that works the OD lock-up clutch in the tranny

you need to remove the power (red) cable from battery for up too 30 mins then connect again this should solve it. if problem persists you will have to take it back to the dealer and have them reprogram the computer.

My Security light in my 2000 Pontiac GP flashes for at least 10 min after I start my car, how can I reset it?


Turn the key to On position (make sure heater fan is off or kill the battery) and leave key in the on position for 30 mins.
Pull the fuse out of the security system and replace it again to reset it prior to this and see if that helps.

Security light flash no security system on truck


sometimes turning the ignition on 3 times quickly without starting will reset the computer. If the van has power locks and keyless entry then try using only the keyless entry. Sometimes your car wont have a alarm but an anti theft device which will not allow it to start if it goes off or something triggers it.

All lights Flashing On


A low voltage issue will cause all these symptoms. You should have the alternator checked as well as the battery. Good Luck
