20 Most Recent 2004 Ford Windstar Questions & Answers

make sure that you are using the original key to start the vehicle. if you recently had one made, and are trying to use it, the key may need to be reprogrammed. also if the light is on, you can typically use the remote to disarm the Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS). get everyone out of the car, lock the doors with the remote, then unlock with the remote and the system should reset.

white smoke is a sign of water in the exhaust , the question is how is it getting there , if only when initial start then goes off then it's only condensation in the exhaust system heating up and turning to steam , if it goes on when driving check coolant level and check engine oil for signs of coolant contamination

Do you have a question

If you don't work on vehicles or have
professional tools, your off to a dealer or
repair shop

What OBD Codes do you have?

Did you have a scan tool put on it to look at data?

Use it like that ,your going to ruin the exhaust converters

I would stop using it until fixed

Probably the best thing to do is have your scanner plug-in checked. Problems like you describe should have made the "check engine" Light come on to diagnose your problems.

Sometimes the onboard system is broken. It should be sending alerts for this problem. You can get free scans from most big autoparts chains. They will probably say "if the light is NOT on they can't tell anything." But they can tell if the onboard system can NOT be accessed.

check fuse
check if power is reaching the heater
check if ground is ok
measure the resistance across the heater

if its a blown fuse- replace it
if no power reaches the heater and fuse is ok - measure if power reaches the fuse.socket then the switch for the heater and so forth
if there is poor ground or no ground - wire up a new ground or fix the old one
if there is too high of a resistance across the heater - look for broken traces and buy a silver trace pen (one made for repairing heater traces)
if there is too low of a resistance - look for a short circuit

I think you should try to check your O2 sensor, MAF sensor, fuel/air ratio, pyrometer, or exhaust.

check fuses/relays and is it just brake lights that have failed. if so and fuses/relays ok, there is a brake light switch at the top of the peddle that may have moved or wire come off. to test the switch just join the 2 wires together and brake lights should come on. hope this helps
