Question about 2001 Ford Windstar

Open Question

Hello, I would like to ask you for help concerning to my mums car. She has a ford windstar 3.0 (1995) and she has broken her immobilizer of this car, the plastic cover. And she has now a problem to lock and unlock the immobilizer. Is there any possibility to buy this cover OR whole new immobilizer? Then we change the cover on our own. We are from the Europe, The Czech Republic, but this is not any problem to buy it in line anwhere from the world ... Do you know any useful advice where to turn? Thanks a lot Robert

SOURCE: 2004 Ford Escape Electrical problem

This is a problem with the alternator. Diode rectifiers and voltage regulator replacement will give this baby a 14.2 voltage output. In this 3L V6 SUV removal of the alternator requires removing the right tire, the right axis and undercovering to reach the 6G alternator. It is a 133mm rectifier with a motorcraft, The serpentine belt is better removed from the bottom. Also keep a bucket on hand to recover the oil from the transmission.

SOURCE: 98' Ford Windstar has a spongy brake

Have you had anyone try to clean and adjust the rear brakes? You will need a shop to scan the van for ABS codes first to cure the ABS light.

I have 2003 ford Windstar and theft light is blinking van won't start. Lost the key so I had to change ignition

The key and the ignition lock have to be paired and you must use one from a Windstar. The key and lock is part of the immobilizer. You may need to visit a dealer so all three (key, lock, anti theft system) talk to each other.

Ford windstar 2002 problems

that could mean that your water pump impeller is broken. when you press the gas the remaining piece of the impeller is pushing the water and it actually makes it to the heater core. at idle it isn't spinning fast enough. ask a local autoparts store if the impeller is made of plastic.

The abs light and the brake light both came in while i driving and never go off.

Hi, welcome to my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

You need to start checking the fluid level in the master cylinder. If the master cylinder is low it can cause this concern. If the fluid in the master cylinder is at the correct level then you need to self test the ABS system for any fault codes. Typically on these vehicles it is a broken tone ring on an axle shaft or a faulty ABS modual.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

Am having prob with ford focus, a U1900 can from communication bus fault, have had it to ford a few times now they were not able to find a code then finally one was found, but now the car is pullingback...

Hello, One event I have found says this is a short in the wire that runs from the ECM to the Immobilizer. This was an overseas posting and the Immobilizer could be the Inertia sensor or the Antitheft system. On the vehicle I found, the wiring loom rubbed against the starter. So if you have any wiring looms running under the car, it could be a hot exhaust or Catalytic converter rubbing into it as well.

You can try Autozone, Oreillys, or Advance for a free scan. Their scanner may be successful as this problem may have developed more symptoms. The pullback is a significant indication as to what branch the problem stems from. It may also help for the mechanic to put the car on a lift and run it, then look for smoke.

There is not much to identify this problem on the internet. I hope my solution is very helpful in providing a direction to fix it. You can print this message and show it to Ford for reference.

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!

Was there a recall on Ford Windstars 1999-2003 for the ABS module? I've read so many incidents like the one I'm having of the ABS and brake lights staying lit. If so, what are the steps that have to be...

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.
