problem #4

Windstar 6-cyl

  • 112,000 miles


2002 Ford Windstar; the rear axle broke in two while driving at 40 mph. Both tires tilted out, axle cracked a little to the left of center while looking at it from the rear of the vehicle. Fortunately my wife was able to control the van. I understand this has happened in hundreds of Windstar, and something needs to be done before people die, if they have not already.

Upon braking the ABS light and the brake light comes on (on the dash panel) and stays on until vehicle is turned off. Replacement of sensor did not solve problem, Ford dealer showing codes dtc 1185,1194,1198,1210,1214,1242,1246,1250,1254,1446, U1262 all related to ABS module assembly.
