SOURCE: 1998 Ford Windstar AC compressor

They get more than warm, but not excessively hot that you can't touch it. This can be caused by a faulty condenser fan motor, dirty condenser coil even low freon, which is my guess along with a dirty condenser. Check these two issues and if it's not the problem your compressor may be getting ready to die. because of internal issues with the motor windings. Make sure the fan is running to speed, clean the condenser and see if the larger copper pipe to the compressor is ice cold and sweaty, if not you may need freon

SOURCE: 2000 ford windstar anti theft light flashing vehicle won't start

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

SOURCE: anti-theft alarm goes off, lights flash, horn

It's going to have to be looked at. But you can try unlocking a different door with the key. Hold it to the left (unlock position) for 2 or three seconds. Should shut off the alarm and allow you to start it.

Have a 1998 ford windstar if wont start and the security light flashes when trying to start it


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
