98 ford windstar fuse box, need anti lock brake fuse location in fuse box


The sensor codes have to be read off a computer to see the problem, either speed sensor, sounds more like ABS module. Locate the main fuse/control box under hood. There should be either a relay or large fuse marked for abs.Good Luck.Please rate me as ' helpful ' if satisfied.

Abs cuts in as the car stops


You have a wheel speed sensor on each front wheel, and one for the rear. If one of these goes bad, your ABS will activate. (It think your wheels are turning at different speeds) Get them checked.

ABS activating at each stop


most likely have a bad wheel speed sensor- you can either take it to the local ford dealer to have them tell you what sensor it is, or you can remove the abs fuse and it will disable the abs alltogether. your brakes will work normaly, they WILL lock up if you stop fast.hope this helps and good luck

Ford windstar. only when i start to drive the car and i press the brakes i hear brake nois and it feel like i,m loosing control then the abs light start blinking after i drive it get better but the abs...


Sounds as if you have a false activation of the ABS system.
If the light does not come on until you are driving then the ABS module is probably seeing a difference in wheel speed from side to side. It could be caused by different size tires,are all your tires the same size and brand? It could be caused by one tire having low tire pressure. It could also be one of the sensor rings esp. on the front has maybe cracked and slipped out of place causing the air gap between the sensor and the ring to be larger than it is suppose to be.The gap between sensor and ring is usually 0.045 of an inch sometimes the ring which is pressed onto the outer CV joint will crack and the ring will slid up the joint slightly away from the sensor.This will decrease the amplitude of the sensor signal and ABS interputs this as a wheel trying to slip or lock up and activates the ABS.When ABS activates it will make a loud pulsing type sound and it will almost feel like it is not going to stop.

1998 ford windstar brakes


sounds like you are getting a false ABS activation. Check the axles at the outer cv joints to see if the sensor rings for the ABS are cracked. A common problem.

'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.
