Aging foam seal around the tail light assembly is probably the issue. To check for sure, remove the trunk's cloth liner, get inside the trunk with a flashlight and have another person methodically spray the trunk area from bottom to up onto the backglass area last. Look for water entering and seal body seams, replace foam seals, etc as detected by your water test.

These are hard to pinpoint, but look closely at tail light areas, and trunk seal....

What full-size tire can replace the OEM spare of 2002 Windstar to fit the spare storage well?

The temporary spare is very narrow as will be the space available for storage. If you want an answer then I suggest you measure the storage compartment HEIGHT WIDTH AND LENGTH and come back and pose your question.
The first problem you will have is to get a wheel that will fit the car that is not too wide for the wheel storage area. If the available wheels are all too wide then you will will not be able to store a full size spare in the storage compartment. For that vehicle the available full size wheels in the correct bolt pattern will not be less than 6 or 6.5 inches wide.

Dashboard light

It means one or more of your tires have low air pressure!
Check and adjust pressure.
Some cars (like mine) have the spare tire connected to the system also, so check all five.

Spare tire key 2002 super duty

Is it a factory installed lock? If it is you might be able to get one at a ford dealer. They can cut a key for door and ignition if you give them the truck's vin (you have to show proof of ownership, registration, title) I don't know if they can use the vin for the spare tire key, but if they can't, drive to a good locksmith, they should be able to make one up w/ the truck @ their store. countrycurt0
