Question about 1998 Ford Windstar

Ford Windstar 1998

I was stopped at a stoplight, and when the light turned green, my van would not go. It made no strange noises, it just would not drive.
The car starts perfectly and seems to run just fine, but will not drive when put in gear. Any help?

A pin or something like that came loose in the steering column where the gear shift moves.
It happened to mine and a mechanic opened it up an put it back and tighten the bolts.
Does your **** rod move very loose and wobbly when you move it into different gears? That's how mine was for a very long time until a screw or nut (forgot) fell out from the steering column.

I have been having problems with my 1998 ford windstar 3.8L with rough idle and dying, i changed the mass air flow sensor, and air filter, ran gas treatment through it, and it hasn't helped, then yesterday...


I have a 98 Windstar and it would die when pulling up to a stop sign, slowing when coming to a stop or making a slow turn. According to Ford recall 98E03 EMISSIONS RECALL some vehicles may stall during deceleration when coming to a stop, during slow speed parking maneuvers and/or coasting thru slow sweeping turns. This may be caused by the Powertrain Contro lModule (PCM) calibration dropping the rpms too quickly during deceleration. This involves reprograming the PCM. The revised calibration will allow the engine rpms to drop slowly during low speed maneuvers to reduce the possibility of a stall. Call your local FORD dealership (have your VIN handy) and have them check to see if this recall has been performed on your vehicle.

1998 Windstar - the high beam lights won't shut off


CHECK THE DIMMER SWITCH. THE SWITCH MAY BE "STUCK IN HIGH BEAM POSITION. THE STEERING WHEEL WILL HAVE TO BE REMOVED. ANOTHER THING TO CHECK FIRST IS THE HIGH BEAM RELAY. THIS MAY BE UNDER THE HOOD IN A FUSE PANEL OR UNDER THE DASH. HOPE THIS SHEDS SOME "LIGHT" ON THE SUBJECT..lol

The interior lights stay on after the van has been shut off and the interior lights will not go off. the van is a 1998 ford windstar.


it is problem with any door lock or door (switch if switch is there), if it is not going off after you make it off manual with help of lamp switch, then problem with lamp.

All these systems are controlled by the GEM, that is the Generic Electronic Module, have Kragen run a quick test and see if the system has codes, but most likely the Module is defective, it is located on top of the fuse panel to the left of the steering column. I have 30 years as a Ford tech so I am pretty darn sure of this diagnose.
