This sounds like a GEM body control module problem, only the dealer has the test equip to diagnose this properly. claims they have factory repair manuals, they have nothing of the sort, this is false advertising, we experts are not employed by, we help free of charge as much as we can with the general automotive knowledge we have learned while working as auto technicians, we make suggestion based on past experience, we are at times wrong.

Ford windstar interior lights will not turn off while driving. when parked lights will go off nut longer than the normal delay

Make sure the interior lighting dimmer is not set to the full ON possition.
I believe the Windstars dimmer is under the headlight switch yet in 2000.

2000 ford windstar stalls at 2000 rpm some times dies i no its not the dpfe

Good Evening, I have had a few of these on the car lot and noticed a few inherited problems that can cause what you are talking about. First thing is a coil going bad, second is those darn plenum and intake gaskets which cause a vacuum leak which causes the engine to develop a miss not only at low rpm but also at higher. I cannot say that it is your problem without coding it, but give you some insight into possibilities. Hope this helps.
