My '99 Windstar: the abs and brake light came on after changing the brake pads - the brakes/emergency brakes operated correctly. After a month, I bled out all of the old brake fluid, in order to firm up the brake pedal, and the abs and brake lights went out, and stayed out! (saved $$$ on new abs sensors) .

Also:there is a toothed ring on the inside of each front axle; this may come loose; you'll feel it when you apply the brakes. I simply tapped it back on to the axle, as far as it could go; no more problems...

It could be a bad fuse, but is most likely a problem with your abs system.

Brake light and abs light is on


Red lite comes on at startup to ck. system. If amber lite stays on, ck. brake fluid level and see if emergency brake is partly up. This shows problem with anti lock system if it stays on, not main brake system. If all is ok with this but still stays on Have ABS system checked. Haynes repair manual, 95-2003 Windstar, all models.

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.

I have a 2003 ford windstar 2003 and very frequently the ABS and Brake lights turn on for a long period of time. I already checked the breaks system and everything is right. I don't know what else can be...


if you have noise coming from the pads sometimes this is caused by dust, an easy fix is to take to the car wash and pressure wash the wheels to remove the dust.
as for the intermittent abs light may be a bad level sensor for the reservoir. which would in any a need for immediate repair, so that real problems will be evident and you will not just ignore the light.

98' Ford Windstar has a spongy brake


Have you had anyone try to clean and adjust the rear brakes? You will need a shop to scan the van for ABS codes first to cure the ABS light.
