Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

well, the problem sounds to me like the rear electronic module. Do you have a DVOM?

What's a dvom if that's the manual then no
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

digital volt ohm meter

Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

If you have a volt meter I can provide you with some instruction to test the circuits to help determine if that's the problem, which most likely is, based on your description of what's happening. One can usually be gotten from ebay or a junk yard

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If you could just give me instruction how to test it and replace it would be appreciated
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

I am going to have to opt out so another expert can provide you with a way to test the module. I don't want you misled and I am not totally confident with this one.

We figured the problem is the rear control module in 2002
Ford windstar in need to know where it's located how to test it and how to replace it
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

I can definitely give you the location and replacement procedure, however when trying to dig up diagnostic information on it, the information I am getting from alldata is limited. It involves using a bi directional scan tool to attempt communication with the module though. I will provide the replacement procedure for it. One minute. Sorry for the wait.

Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

Here you go. Again, if you really want to try and test it, other than using a scan tool capable of communicating with it, I am unsure of another way.
