Smile 01 windstar 3.8, abs, e brake and stop lamps

Hi our abs light and e brake lights come on intermitantly and the stop lamps stay on while driving as well as after we shut it off, if we pump the brakes they will go off. Any ideas would be great! Thanks in advance

Question 01 windstar abs and brake light now p1401...update

Update: I sprayed the stop lamp switch on the brake pedel with wd 40 as sugested in another forum...It did work! No more brake lights stuck on.
Still have the abs and e brake lights coming on though...and the battery keeps draining for some reason, I tried to start it the other day and it just clicked. The lights in the van would come on and the hazard flashers came on and would not turn off! We jump started the van and then were able to turn the hazard flashers off. Do we have some sort of electrical problem? I am getting the p1401 engine code again as well even though we just replaced the DPFE a few weeks ago and thought it was fixed. Any ideas would be great!

Question Re: 01 windstar 3.8, abs, e brake and stop lamps

I too share a variation of that problem with my 2001 Windstar SE 3.8L 6CYL.

Every so often the ((ABS)) TRAC OFF & BRAKE(!) lights come on.... I wish I knew why.

Any ideas on how to correct this problem are welcomed.


Please email DeLorean1980@msn.com

Thank you

I had a similar problem. The fix was two fold. First, the ground above the radiator was loose and had slag around it. Tighten it. The second was that the voltage regulator was not working properly and the current was unstable. Replaced the alternator (the voltage regulator is built into it) and the problem was gone.

ABS module is a common problem in the Windstar. Had the same issue and having the module refurbished. See my post this date.
