Check the wire harnesses on top of the transmission for any signs of open plastic casing. You may of had a mouse or some other critter chew their way through some wire insulation which is causing a short to ground,,,, or a short to power. If any are found, spice wires back together ( same colour wires ) and try speedo again.

You look up the circuit that blows the fuse in your owners manual

solve the problem,you don't replace the fuse, only to have it keep
blowing

99 Ford windstar ABS light coming on and blowing fuse under dash. The problem is that the fuse also works the speedometer! Please help: where is the abs mod? and how can i fix this. Thank for any help!


Check the connector at the ABS unit. There have been some problems where the brake pressure switch leaks, the brake fluid runs down the wires right to the ABS connector, and creates a short. If this is the case, you'll have to replace the pressure switch kit and the ABS connector.

My 1999 Ford Windstar minivan we keep blowing fuses that have to do with the rear defrost wondering if anyone could tell me where the wires are running through the van so i can find my short a lot easier


just put a bulb or buzzer in place of the fuse. it will go out or stop buzzing when you remove hte short. Check the connections to the back glass first

Speedometer,odometer, a/c clutch and ABS light on


Its a faulty switch/sensor on your brakes master cylinder. The switch leaks brake fluid into the wires connected to it causing a short in the circuit and blowing the fuse that controls the ABS, odometer, speedometer and cruise control. This problem can also cause a fire. A fire can occur even when the car is off. Go to this link to find out how to fix the problem. - http://www.fordwindstarrecall.info/

2001 Ford Windstar speedometer fuse keeps blowing


We had the same problem but when we put in a new fuse it smoked. It turned out to be something with the master cylinder and required the changing of a 20 dollar part by the mechanic and problem solved

Fuse keeps blowing out. Odometer and speedometer don't work and cold ac quits. I've replaced the fuse many times and it keeps blowing out. Unhooked the ac compressor wiring and tried again, blown again....


I had the same problem with my 2000 Windstar. It ended up being a brake fluid leak around a sensor on the master cylinder. The sensor is a known issue and has been redesigned. The brake fluid dripped onto some elctrical connections causing fuses to blow. The sensor turns off the cruise control when the brakes are pressed. On some vehicles it was known to cause fires and Ford had to provide a recall. At the time my Windstar was not covered in the recall but it may be now.
