Various warning lights coming on, ABS, brake light, odometer reading dashes only and overdrive lights started blinking while driving. Electrical diagnosis and pinpoint test by Ford found that the fuse blown due to the brake pressure switch leaking fluid through the wiring harness to the speed control servo and melting the servo. Two days after the repair, the ABS light and brake light started coming on again. Tested again by Ford dealer, they said it's a faulty ECU module.

The emergency brake on the 2002 Ford Windstar is defective. I've had it into the dealer numerous times and they say they fix it but nothing ever changes. It sometimes takes two or three pulls on the emergency brake to engage it- irritating if you're parking on a hill and unsafe in a real emergency situation.

Emergency brake sometimes engages while driving or backing out of my driveway in the morning. The brake light on the dash comes on when this occurs. Dealer cannot find a problem after at least three attempts to fix it. The emergency brake sometimes pops when engaged also - as if the cable snapped or slipped. You have to put the lever down and reset it.
