    I took it to Ford and they did a diagnostic, but were unable to reproduce the problem. The charging system is good, and it is now documented.

    When I had to go over speed bumps, I lost all my dash lights. I notice when I step on the brack, they all come back. Take my foot off the brake, and they go off again.

Why won't 2004 Ford Freestar start, but the dash lights up?

More than likely a key problem. Dont mess with any fuses. A bad keywhen turned wont make any noise. If you have a 2nd key please try that first. If that is your only key consult a locksmith to see if they can program another key. Dont throw away a bad key it may be able to be reused. Good luck.

Freestar 2004 rear brake light won't go off. Bulb

I'm assuming all of the brake lights are on? If so there is a brake light switch located way up under the dash that hits on the arm for your brake pedal. If this is not "closed" when the pedal is up (not depressed), your brake lights will stay on. It is adjustable.
