Won't Start...Security Light On

Believe someone may have crossed wires when using jumper cables. Van ran before, now Security light is on and van turns over, tries to start about every 10 turns, but won't run. Any suggestions?...thanks, J

    Worked...even the Chevrolet dealership didn't think it would...they wanted me to pull the negative battery cable for 30 minutes...not easy to do if you know where they put the battery. Thanks Bloomingidoi.

Try this! Turn key all on (but notrunning) for 30mins., turn off then back on for 10mins., turn off and then back on for 10mins. turn off and then try starting engine. sounds like security system burnt up. may have to replace it.

I agree it sounds like the aftermarket security system.
You'll have to find someone who can figure out how to disconnect it.
There are many different brands and very few common factors.

Someone hooked jumper box up backwards on van and tried ti start it it ran great before that after it wouldn't start at all changed the computer now it starts runs a few mins then shuts off what could it...


You will have to take it to the Dealer. You may have burnt out or the "Control Module" needs to be replaced or reprogrammed. Make sure the battery has not reversed polarity also.

My battery died and now the van wont start.


I have no idea about the factory alarm resetting itself, but I DO have experience with having someone leave lights on and jumping the battery the wrong way. Unless you are 100% positive this is no the case, make sure it was not fried on the jump. If the cables were crossed, you might have some wires, therefore rendering your on-board computers to ****. =) Good Luck.

Also, contact a dealer via PHONE (so they can not trick you into being charged by looking at your van) in regards to factory alarm.

2000 ford windstar won't crank over,but pats keys good, and batt.


First thing I would check is to see if you have power at the trigger wire of the starter motor while someone is trying to start the vehicle for you. It will be a Yellow with a light blue trace. If you do then I would check to see if the main battery cable has power to it all the time when someone is trying to crank it. If it does then I would hold a test light on the case of the starter motor and have someone try to crank it. Make sure that the ground you use for this test is on the negative battery terminal not just anywhere on the car. If the test light lights while you are cranking it then you have a bad ground. Hook up a set of jumper cables from the battery negative terminal and clamp it directly on to your starter motor and see if it starts. If you check it and the test light doesn't light up and all the other checks are good then your starter motor has failed. If one of the other tests has failed then you have a starter relay problem or something else. let me know what you find out.
