Question about 1999 Ford Windstar

Open Question

1999 Ford Windstar ABS, TC, and OD lights come on when driving

It starts with the ABS and traction control light on, then the OD off light flashes once the car is on the highway. Tranny has been having issues as well. The message center keeps asking for different thing to be checked. Does not happen until you have driven for a mile or so.

SOURCE: 1999 Windstar ABS/Traction/OD off light and speedometer

Its a faulty sensor switch on your brakes master cylinder. It leaks brake fluid into the wires that are plugged into it and causes a short in the circuit, resulting in a blown fuse that controls the AC, odometer, speedometer, cruise control, and ABS light to come on. This problem can also cause a fire. The fire can occur even when the vehicle is off. To fix this problem go to this URL - http://www.fordwindstarrecall.info/

The abs light and trac off lights are on, the trak off light is flashing


this is caused by a hard fault in the ABS/Traction control (all one system), the only way to pin down the problem is to have the Ford dealer test the system for trouble codes, the parts are very expensive so guessing is really not an option.

ABS/CHECK ADVTRAC/SKIDDING CAR LIGHTS GO ON


The abs sensors also control the traction control and 4 wheel drive actuators so if one of the sensors is faulty the traction control will be disabled and the drive system will be stuck in the mode set at time of failure be that 4x4 or 2wd
get the abs system repaired

Flashing traction control lighton 1998 windstar


the code means that the traction control module is detecting a problem with the solenoid that controls the ingage/dis ingage of the wheels. also if the sending units of the ABS system are either moved or damaged this could also throw a code. seeing you just replaced the brakes and rotors i would start there.

'98 Windstar ABS and traction control lights after getting brakes done


Prior to the brakes being replaced you more than likely had metal to metal contact which can throw metal shavings on the ABS wheel sensors. This metal shavings stick to the road grime on the wheel sensors showing the ABS computer a false reading making the ABS light come on. On Ford Windstars, the ABS light and the traction control light are on the same circuit. A simple (and cheap) fix is to pull the ABS wheel sensors and clean them with brake cleaner or throttle body cleaner. Make sure you dry them well and reinstall. On the Windstar there is one bold holding the sensors to the back of the wheels. I recommend you spray some WD40 on the bold and wait about 10 minutes before removing.
If this doesn't fix the ABS light and brakes, you can have the ABS system diagnosed at a shop for about an hour labor. (Usally about $100)
I have fixed many of these type of problems just by cleaning the ABS wheel sensors. Good luck.

My ABS light stays on


Guest, thanks for the info. I replaced the brake pressure deactivation switch (for the cruise control) and everything is back to normal.

The Ford dealer told me to hold on to the receipt in case they recall them.

Thanks again.
