    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

    you'll need light.... Just look on the sides of the BLOCK, most likely the front (Radiator side) it'll look like a ....plug, hehe.. Could also be on the Left and right sides... hardly ever the back..

    the wire looks like a normal house table lamp wire, find it and follow it..


    ** OR.... go to crappy tire, find a repair manual, rip it open look for the plug, and off you go.**

    Windstar, doesen't it have a owner's manual? If not phone Ford Canada's 24hr line 1-800-???-???? (they have one) OR call a dealership...

    Tommorow might be too late, so drive to a car wash, with good lighting and heat and look for your plug! Good luck guys!

    you might not have one, my integra does not. it was just a factory option, i think its like an extra 150 bucks or something. but usually rental cars have them
