Question about 2003 Ford Windstar

Direction ofrd windstar 2003

While turning the steering wheel(right or left), the wheels don't seems to follow. It's like a "slide" in the steering. It happens for less than a second than the wheels get back on tracks by themselves. It's quite scary...

Look under hood and look at the steering gear box. Thats the thing at the end of the steering column. It has a fiber plate that takes the vibrating out of the steering column It may be about tore in half or hanging on by one bolt instead of two.

At 100kph the wheel will start to wiggle vigorously.the car has undergone wheel alignment and wheel balancing.what shall we do next?


If it starts shaking after 100kph then its either the power steering pump or the steering box is going bad. Do you hear wizzing noises when you turn the wheel right and left (similar to a turbo boost sound)? Have you recently notices problems with steering like being delayed?

The only other thing that would cause something like that would be if the tires are worn badly on places. If this was the problem, it would not really shake the wheel - but when the tires hit a bump or notch in the road it would allow them to go in that direction easier then usual. So it would seem like something was grabbing the wheel or changing the course while driving.

If you steering box is going bad, you will notice other things like a delay from when the wheels start to respond after you have turned your steering wheel in a certain direction. if your turning right and there seems to be a delay as to when your wheels begin to turn then you need to have the box checked.

After checking the box if that is not the problem, try adding power steering fluid and see if that fixes the problem. If it doesn't then have the power steering pump checked.

Locked up Steering Wheel


Your Wheels may not be straight which could cause the steering wheel lock to get stuck. Turn the steering wheel left and right, from one stop to the other, watching how far the wheel travels. Now, turn the wheel to the center of the travel distance and turn the key. If this doesn't free it up, turn the key as you turn the steering wheel left then right to get the lock to release the wheel. Hope this helps and please rate my solution - and thanks for using Fixya!!

Recode steering angle sensor


For recode the steering angle sensor you must connect a diagnosis scantool to the data link connector of the car in order to access the ESP ECU (Electronic Control Unit), in other words programm again the steering angle sensor in the ESP ECU. Select the steering angle sensor programming (learning) menu, and follow the steps: put steering wheel in straight direction, then turn steering wheel to the left direction less 15 degrees, then to the right direction less 15 degrees, put steering wheel in straight direction again until the programming was done. Then the ESP light will turns OFF.

I have a 2003 chrysler town and country and the key wont move at all. Any tips


Are the front wheels turned all the way left or right?
The steering mechanism may be locked, When it is the key cannot turn. If they are turned "hard" left or right pull down in the direction they are turned...it will be hard to pull AND at the same time turn the key. This should unlock the key IF the wheels are turned this way.
Let me know if this helped and if there is any additional information I should know to help you!

My 2003 Ford Windstar whines when turning the steering wheel.


The power steering pump has gone bad. Consider replacing it because if serviced it will still show this sign in a little while.

Good luck.
