Hi, there must be a leak. Have you checked the rear wheel slave cylinders? These can leak onto the rim and the fluid get slung out on the road without ever creating a puddle.

Brake light and abs light is on


Red lite comes on at startup to ck. system. If amber lite stays on, ck. brake fluid level and see if emergency brake is partly up. This shows problem with anti lock system if it stays on, not main brake system. If all is ok with this but still stays on Have ABS system checked. Haynes repair manual, 95-2003 Windstar, all models.

Brake light coming off and on


Check the fluid level. Low brake fluid level can cause the brake light to come on warning you of low fluid. It will be off when the car is level, but as you hit bumps and hit your brakes, the fluid that is in there will slosh around indicatind low fluid. Don't overfill and only use DoT 3 brake fluid. Do not substitute anything else.

Abs and brake lite comes on and off


Hi!!

Check your brake fluid level, if low, fill to level. Check for leaks and pads for wear.

Not a good idea to drive with brake lite on.

My 1998 ford windstar abs brake light is on. In the past I had to add brake fluid and in doing so the light went out. I tried that but it continues to burn. Can it be reset?


thats odd. Adding brake fluid shouldn't have kicked on the ABS light..

Low brake fluid would cause your RED parking brake light to come on not the orange ABS light (unless thats what you mean. if thats the case its normal for that light to come on with low fluid. in this case check the brake lines starting to the master cylinder and the components at the wheels to make sure there is no leaks if you go HERE complained about your situation and also noticed a leak on the bottom of the master cylinder (hazardous in more than 1 way) )

not sure of the component locations under the hood of the windstar but check to see if you were bumping wires on the ABS control module when you were putting brake fluid in. may be a loose connection that jiggles loose when you drive.

otherwise it might need a new ABS control module or maybe moisture in one of the components.

Bleeding brakes 2000 suburban wsith ab


Why were the brake lines replaced?

Sounds like the mastercylinder may have run dry. You have to bench bleed the master and then DO NOT allow fluid to run low, while bleeding brakes...

if master cylinder runs low on fluid and air gets in, almost impossible to bleed with out releasing the lines and bleed master it self.

ABS and brake on 2001 Ford Windstar come on randomly


Do you mean the van is actually braking like a Starsky and Hutch move or that the warning lights indicate that they are on? If its lights then you may be low on brake fluid. Maybe a module leak

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.
