Electrical/Transmission or o/d light on a 2002 Ford Windstar

I have a 2002 Ford Windstar. I took it in to have the latest recall work done on it and with in a week I noticed the o/d light started flashing. The cruise control doesn't work. The back power windows don't work and every time I go to have it checked the fuse for the computer is blown so I have to replace it. I had the code pulled off of it but, when I had it checked by a transmission guy he said it was fine and there were no problems. I have a feeling that all of these things tie in together somehow but either way I need to know what is wrong with my poor van. BTW it runs fine as long as you turn the o/d off while driving it. The only time it runs funny is if you don't turn o/d off it has problems shifting in and out of o/d. Please help me I don't know what to do!!!!!

    The recall work had something to do with the Cruise control switch. I tried to take it back to them but they wouldn't even look at it. I am at a lose at this point. I don't know what to do.

What is the service schdule? I bought my Windstar


Hello fellow Windstar owner. I just took my 2001 Windstar into a local Ford Dealer here in Chicagoland to have my rear axle inspected. I can tell you that FORD is taking this recall issue very seriously and with that you will not have any trouble having your vehicle inspected and then repaired. FORD goes by your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) as a means to track everything like this recall issue. By the way, FORD really impressed me with the repair that was done to my rear axle and I am very picky (I am a former auto mechanic). You will not have any problems with FORD taking a look at your 2003 Windstar. Just call your local FORD dealer and ask for the service department. Tell them you would like your rear axle inspected per the national recall. Please remember to rate my solution. Thanks!

I own a 2001 Windstar. Your noisy brake problem could be nothing more that new brakes being broken in. I have done many brake jobs on my 2001 Windstar as well as other vehicles that I have owned. To prevent this problem from occuring, I apply a thin film of Disc Brake Quieter directly to each brake pad during the installation process. This quiets the brakes during the break in period. I hope this helps.

02 windstar...170000miles...blown head gasket,broken psngr window motor/no cruise...should I repair or fix?


wow sorry to hear that. well that all dpends on your financial situation. being a technician myself i would not due to high mileage, cost of repair bill ( if i was to pay to have repairs done) and knowing that the transmission is next on the listof things to go. that also will carry a hefty repair bill being that it is a electronic transmission and ford is notorious for having bad transmissions. hope this was helpful, if so please leave positive rating.

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.

2002 ford wind star o/d light started flashing after car wash


Two things that it could be.
1 - Look under the hood, there is a wire coming out of the master cylinder, there was a problem with some of the windstars that leak brake fluid, run down the wires and drip on the neutral safety switch, which would cause the light to come on.
2 - This one solved my problem. It could be the transmission valve body that needs to be updated or changed out. There are many issues with these valve bodies. Slipping from 1-2, OD light blinking, shift 1-2-3-2, late down shift from 3-2. I had all of these.
If you do some work on cars, then you should be able to change out the valve body yourself, with a torque wrench. I picked one up on ebay for $180 with shipping both ways, and took my about 2 hours. My Windstar never drove so good.
-fyi, The OD solenoid is inside the transmission.

2000 ford windstar... electrical mess!!


one reason for that fuse to blow is a bad brake pressure switch on the master cylinder. could be a
warranty/recall item. can also leak brake fluid. also check behind each wheel for any sign of brake fluid,
particularly the rear wheels if you have rear drum brakes. fixed one here recently where the vehicle's jack
came loose in the right rear compartment and short that circuit. make sure your jack is stowed properly.

good luck
