we had been having this problem as well. took it to a local shop who sent us to an electrical shop. they thought it was in the cluster as well.So we took to the dealer. turns out there was a stuck (broken) vaulve in the master cyl. that was causing fluid to drip onto the wiring causing everything to short out. Seems that they had seen it before as it took less than two hours to find and fix. $230 total with tax.

Every so often when I shut off my Windstar the cooling fans stay running and will never shut off. I disconnect the negitive cable from the battery and re-connect and it keeps running.. No one can resolve this.... Help???????????

THANK YOU SO MUCH. I believe this solution also solved our Fuse #10 repeatedly blowing (takes out odometer, speedometer, air conditioning, and ABS light comes on). We followed your advice and replaced the brake pressure switch with the redesigned switch (SW-6351 XW7Z-9F924-BA Brake Repair Kit) and so far the fuse has not blown. This part cost about $25.00 through the Ford dealer.

Its at the dealer now. first they replaced the coil assembly, the van was misfiring, thats all fixed now. they reprogrammed my computer or updated it... now they are checking the transmission. Oh boy am I ever sorry I bought a Ford Windstar.. never again. only 30,000 and I can't tell you how many things have been fixed or replaced.Its irrelevant that I have my own extended warranty and a great plan too.. its annoying and I dont trust the van at all.

#2510 of 2608 2001 Windstar Torque converter
Jul 22, 2006 (11:03 am)
I recently brought in my van to the dealer (30,000 miles) cuz it was misfiring, and at 38 mph + it was shuttering. They replaced the coil assembly, updated my computer, now the other problem they say is the torque converter. they have to take everything apart for my extended warranty company to get more info on what they will approve. If the torque converter is replaced, does that mean the whole tranny needs to be done or what.. totally confused and annoyed that this is in the shop AGAIN.
