#2386 of 2608 1999 ford windstar ? ASAP my only car
Apr 27, 2006 (11:37 am)
I just got a 1999 for windstar and the check engine light came on and it is the O2 sensors, I haven't changed them yet, but today my husband was turned a corner and hit the gas real hard the van jerked and then just wouldn't go, we pulled over and it wouldn't go into drive or reverse or anything. Don't know if he blew the tranny or not cause there were no signs of it going out or slipping or anything. Can the O2 sensor cause this.
#2388 of 2608 1995 Windstar idle revving
Apr 28, 2006 (4:16 am)
Hey folks. I have a '95 Windstar, and my car has recently begun revving uncontrollably when I am stopped or going slowly. It'll go from 500RPM to 2000 and back down. If my foot isn't crammed on the brake I jump...hit a lady's bumper last week and it cost me $1000. ANyone have an idea what that is? I took it in to a service shop, and their aftermarket computer readout couldn't pinpoint it, except to say that the motor WAS receiving messages from the computer to rev the engine. Hmmm...

Possibly a bad computer.

How much does a new computer run? This vehicle has 195,000 on it (35k on a new engine)...not sure it's worth it...
#2391 of 2608 Warning Light
Apr 29, 2006 (4:06 am)
I have a 2001 windstar. I have a yellow warning light that looks almost like a top with an arrow in a circular pattern above it. It appeared right above the RPM gauge. I have never seen this light and wondering if anyone could tell me before I have to go see a mechanic about it? Also, if anyone knows where I can get an owners manual for the windstar that would be great.

having the same problem. i sanded down the four metal contacts on the sliding door behind the passenage side.
as for the dome light until you find the real problem try to remove the battery relay under the drivers side fuse box
under the dash on his side. that fwill shut off the dome and the power to the windows. when you need to open the windows repace the relay. im still working on the problem
if you find out anything please let me know thank you very much vptsr

Out of curiosity was it raining when it stalled?
Did the check engine light come on? Is it on?
