My 2000 Winstar engine light came on also and stayed on but ran fine. I replaced the upper and lower intake gaskets and you must replace new Ford bolts. Have not had any more trouble.

That happens to my 02 as well but I now just ignore it as the code comes up as " lean:- L bank"& I just had my Van air cared & it is putting out less emmissions than our 02 Camry. if it comes on I just get the code checked & then I ignore it till the next time.

The "check engine" light and the ABS/Brake lights are on in my 2002 Ford Windstar. I stopped at Advance Auto near my work and was given the following codes:
P401 "exhaust gas recirculation flow insufficient detected"
C1246 ABS outlet valve coil RR circuit failure
C1185 ABS power relay output circuit failure
C1198 ABS inlet valve coil LF circuit failure
C1254 ABS inlet valve coil RR circuit failure
C1250 ABS inlet valve coil LR circuit failure
C1210 ABS outlet valve coil RF circuit failure
C1242 ABS outlet valve coil LR circuit failure
C1214 ABS inlet valve coil RF circuit failure
C1194 ABS outlet valve coil LF circuit failure
Does anyone know what will fix these codes/problems?

Mary I am sorry to hear this & I guess I am lucky there as my code reads only come back with one code & that is Lean L. Bank. This is an indicator of O2 sensor but even with this code showing, the old gal still pasted Air Care this year & with flying colors. I comared the values of my 02 SEL against the AC readings of our 02 Canry (4cyl) & other than fuel mileage the Ford beat the Toyota in every category.
Now as for the 2 brake system warning lights are concerned. Mine have been on in the 2 years I have owned this big beautiful old gal. But I have found out that it is just sensors that are faulty & not the system. This should help easy some of the angsiety. I have found out Via an emergency situation that my ABS & Braking systems are working in top order. I just don't worry about them anymore as it is too costly to search & replace the sensors. The ABS system is designed that if it fails, your brakes revert back to normal brakes. That is Normals for all us oldsters out there. Hope all this helps you. Cheers Angela
