Question about 1999 Ford Windstar
It started with the ABS and traction control light on, then the OD off light flashes once the car is on the highway and the speedometer becomes erradic at about over 40MPH. Ford recently changed the tranny because I had the OD light flashing, wondering if this is connected to the work they did?
Its a faulty sensor switch on your brakes master cylinder. It leaks brake fluid into the wires that are plugged into it and causes a short in the circuit, resulting in a blown fuse that controls the AC, odometer, speedometer, cruise control, and ABS light to come on. This problem can also cause a fire. The fire can occur even when the vehicle is off. To fix this problem go to this URL - http://www.fordwindstarrecall.info/

I had the OD light doing the same thing, no senor was bad it was just the beginning of Transmission failure. Est cost $2500-3500.
