Question about 2000 Ford Windstar

I have a 2000 Ford Windstar with 77800 miles. I bought it a few months ago. The ABS light comes one when driving it but the brakes work well. Also, there is a squeek coming from the belts. While driving it today I felt a clunk and the car shook as though it was coming out of gear and almost shut down for a split second. It then continued on like it was fine. I think the clunk is related to the belt squeek because when it did it I heard the squeek also. Someone thought it might be one of the pullys on the belts was losing its ball bearings. What do you think?

The ABS light could be just a misaligned sensor on the wheel or even a dirty harness plug in, many times repaired by just cleaning.
You should I would check out the pulleys and belt tensioner very soon as when they began making noises they can swarm very quickly causing damage to several items.

2000 ford windstar speedometer does not work and abs light is on


For the abs light it needs to be scanned to see which sensor is not working.
Try to clean the sensor first if it doesn't help it need to be replaced.

Was there a recall on Ford Windstars 1999-2003 for the ABS module? I've read so many incidents like the one I'm having of the ABS and brake lights staying lit. If so, what are the steps that have to be...


The 2001 windstar does not have a recall on the ABS. There is a TSB but this is just a message to help out the repairer, its not a free warranty repair. The only recall you most likely have open is the speed control recall which is not associated with the ABS concerns common to the windstar.

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 get a brake light and abs light at the same time. No other problems noted. This is a 2003 Windstar


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.

Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.


Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!
