1999 Windstar drives fine for awhile then something starts to happen the abs light comes on the trak light comes on the lights won't go hi and low no backup lights the turn signal won't turn o

Just as a precaution, please check the brake fluid reservoir on that model. There is a sensor at the base of the master cylinder which can leak brake fluid over the wiring circuit, and cause the electrics to short out. In some extreme cases this has caused fires in some vehicles. This is why Ford had issued a recall to this particular model in the states at least.

Speedometer and taq not working. and abs light came on at same time for a 1999 ford windstar 3.0. all stoped working and the abs light came on at same time.

If your speedometer is not working, that means your Vehicle Speed Sensor or VSS for short, needs to be replaced. The ABS light means your ABS sensors need to be replaced. There are 4 ABS sensors: Front driver's side, Rear driver's side, Front passengers side, and Rear passenger's side. Once you replace your VSS, it will start communicating with your transmission again, and the speedometer will kick in. Hope this helps.

ABS light stays on and traction control turns off why? What do I need to fix it?

if the ABS light stays on indicates a problem with the system, most of the time it is a wheel speed sensor that has failed. You will need a decent scan tool that can read ABS codes, or go to a service garage and they can find a repair the problem, don't be alarmed some parts are not cheap. If you can stand the light being on, the ABS system will not operate, but your basic brakes will work normal with out ABS, just in a panic stop the wheels can lock up.
