Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I'm Chris, Thanks for stopping in here at Just Answer to ask a question.
Most likely the air bag light is flashing soon after you start the vehicle. Can you count these flashes for me before and after the short pause in the middle?
Have you used a scan tool to actually see what other codes are stored in the modules?
I am going to explain you what happend from the begining...
First, rear wiper didn't work, then passanger power slide door lock stopped to work and speaker too. Third, e-break light started to show on and off.
I was driving yesterday AC lights everything was working good, after I turned off the car in my house and on again ABS, O/D off and E-break lights appeared, then I got no odometer, no speed clock, no AC and no heater and condition.....
So nothing was happend, no accident, no crash.... I just was driving in around.
So I've changed already relays, fuses, ether the cluster, and I discoved the car blows a fuse #6, if I'm not mistaken.... I also reset the computer and nothing happened.
So why fuses are keeping blowing???? But I don't have that scan tool, I am trying to fix by myself. Is any other way to fix it without the scan???
Yes you can fix it without a scan tool but you just have to make logical guesses as I am doing based on what I have seen in the past. Fuses will blow from shorts. If there is brake fluid i nthe fuse panel then this is a short.
So far this is what you have to repair.
As a ford tech we use a scan tool to start, there are about 6 modules on this vehicle, there are about 700 possible total codes. You can have 3 codes or you can have hundreds. There are pinpoint tests for each code which tell you haw to fix them. I dont know the codes so I can say do this or that. I am tained by ford to fix vehicles by using the computer which is inside the vehicle, I am not trained to guess which makes me look bad and wastes my customers money and time. You for sure have a faulty ABS module, 80% of windstars do. As for the rest it looks like a fuse panel internal short.
