2003 Ford Windstar Owner Comments

My 2003 Ford Windstar has been continuously giving my electrical problems. First the rear parking sensors disengage when in reverse. While driving the ABS, brake and traction control lights come on the dashboard. I'm not sure what it does, but the vehicle does then not function properly. The traction control and brakes don't seem to be working properly.

Tire pressure monitoring systems fails. After set, lights up although the tire pressure is properly set. Advance trac system - automatically engages in conditions that do not require it (e.g. driving on the interstate). The vehicle immediately slows with a griding noise. Both incidents have been reported to the dealer who has said that these are sporadic problems that have occured and that they have not been able to replicate, therefore, they can do nothing. However, after reviewing your site, I see that I am not the only person experiencing the same problems.

The consumer stated that she has only had her vehicle approx 6 wks and has already had it in the shop 4 times. Consumer states that while she is driving, the check tire pressure and reset light comes on. She states she has taken the vehicle into the shop and each time they reset the computer and it comes back on in less than a week. She states the last time she took it to the dealer, she was told that there is no fix for the problem, it is something she may have to live with. Consumer said she is refusing to "just live with it" because she Transport her children in this vehicle and something may happen. She is told to just ignore the light by the dealer. Also, front tires have caused intermittent vibration during gear engagement, braking and accelerating.

Consumer had vehicle for 7 weeks, and the check tire pressure light stayed on. Consumer took vehicle to the repair shop 3 times. Ford maintained it could not resolve the problem. Consequently, consumer would just have to live with that light staying on.
