Question about 2003 Ford Windstar
Went to the car wash tonight abut 30 min laer the o/d light started flashing 2002 ford windstar
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.

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
