If your speedometer is not working, that means your Vehicle Speed Sensor or VSS for short, needs to be replaced. The ABS light means your ABS sensors need to be replaced. There are 4 ABS sensors: Front driver's side, Rear driver's side, Front passengers side, and Rear passenger's side. Once you replace your VSS, it will start communicating with your transmission again, and the speedometer will kick in. Hope this helps.

I have a ford winstar and the O/D light is flashing and the check transmission light is on but that only comes on once you start driving. My Break light and ABS light is on all the time. My odometer does...


sounds like you need a speed sensor as well as an ABS module. it runs the speedometer, as well as inform on the wheel speed to make the ABS work, AND the transmission uses it to know when to shift.

generally do not drive it when the O/D light is flashing, it means an issue bad enough to cause serious damage to the trans.

2000 ford windstar speedometer does not work and abs light is on


For the abs light it needs to be scanned to see which sensor is not working.
Try to clean the sensor first if it doesn't help it need to be replaced.

99 Ford windstar ABS light coming on and blowing fuse under dash. The problem is that the fuse also works the speedometer! Please help: where is the abs mod? and how can i fix this. Thank for any help!


Check the connector at the ABS unit. There have been some problems where the brake pressure switch leaks, the brake fluid runs down the wires right to the ABS connector, and creates a short. If this is the case, you'll have to replace the pressure switch kit and the ABS connector.

ABS, A/c clutch,speedometer,odometer quit at the same time


Its your ABS system. There is a faulty switch/sensor on the master cylinder. It leaks brake fluid into the wires connected to it and causes the circuit to short, resulting in a blown fuse that controls the AC, odometer, speedometer, cruise control and ABS light to stay on. This can even cause a fire in the vehicle. A fire can occur even when the vehicle is turned off. To correct the problem go to this link - http://www.fordwindstarrecall.info/

Speedometer stopped working and mileage has dashes in display


Replace your speed sensor. Your speedometer is controlled by a sensor in the transmission, and when it goes it can cause irregular shift patterns, check engine light, abs light, ect. It's a simple fix, but the part is kind of expensive, generally between $75.00 and $100.00.
