I know this question is old but I just fixed my overdrive on my 1999 Windstar. I took out the dash to fix the gauges by soldering the circuit boards on the back of them.
I noticed that the wire from the shifter where the wires come out for the overdrive button.....were busted right off. It appears that Ford when they built this thing didn't give quite enough wire....this in combination with the tilt wheel broke the two wires in half. Used a little solder and some heat shrink and better than new!

I have a 1996 cord windstar. And au Tomatic transmission slips in and out ofgears


First of all, I've owned a windstar for the past 13years and never came across (a cord windstar). can clarify this for me?. To your question, the best answer i can give you right now is to change the fluid, filter and see if this will help you. If it does not, I'll take to a dealer and ask tthem to diognose the issue. changing the fluid first has helpped other users in the past. Let me know what you found out-what the problem was..thnks and good luck.....

I got a 2000 maxima wont go into overdrive and fans not working


On overdrive not working = check the 'Revolution Sensor' (on transmission output area, check the 'OD' Switch.

On the fans - fuse panel under hood - two relays one for the 'thermostatic fan' the other for the A/C fan.

Troubleshoot Overdrive on a 2000 Windstar


if the OD off light is flashing you may need either a TRS transmission range sensor or a VSS Vehical Speed Sensor.
Use a DTC reader to confirm

2000 windstar airbag light is on on dash and horn


Hi Mamaberta7,
The OD light flashing is something you need to have checked using a scanner. Since this trans. was recently rebuilt,you want to get it checked soon. The transmission can default to full line pressure and this can cause damage. Also if the unit isn't locking up, it can cause the transmission to overheat.
The airbag light on and the horn not working are probably tied into the clock-spring. This is the most common concern with the symptom you have. Again,you can have the code pulled to confirm the problem or you can use a DVOM (Digital volt/ohm meter) and check for continuity through the clock-spring. If you want to check it yourself,let me know and I will get you the steps to down the system and the wiring diagram.
If you have any other questions,drop me a line. Thanks,Chuck

The overdrive quit working in my 2000 volvo s40. All other gears work right and shift smoothly. When driving on the highway, if i let off the gas to coast, it seems to kick into overdrive, but any...


Several suggestions, some cheap, others not. The overdrive relay is the first suspect. It's located on the relay rack behind the fuse panel (usually). Cheap fix. About $10 on Ebay. Just be sure the part numbers match. I always carry a spare. The speed sensor might be another source of problems. It measures RPMs and feeds the info to the computer. Not an easy do-it-yourself fix. Also, the transmission control module. An easy swap with a spare from Ebay. It hides under the dashboard, passenger side. A solenoid on the transmission locks the OD in and out. Not an easy do-it-yourself fix. Volvos are notorious for flaky issues like this, so I would try all the simple fixes before bringing it to your mechanic.

Ovberdrive on my dodge dakato 2000 quit


You will have to check your OD relay and fuse. Then take a peak underneath at the overdrive solenoid. This should have a single wire connected to it and it will be about the size of an old Tomato paste can. Put your hand on it and have someone else push the overdrive button with the key in the run position but, not , running. If you feel a clicking or tapping motion, you may want to remove the solenoid and clean the throw rod with a aercsol spray such as carb cleaner or even better Brakleen because this one leaves no film. At the worst case, you'll have to replace the solenoid.
