Anti-theft alarm goes off randomly, radio and dashlights work but car will not start


Your problem is your BCM or known as body control module is looping into theft mode and in return not getting power to the starter so I'd check with ford on a BCM flash to factory default settings hope this helps you

Battery light came on while driving. 2 hours later I could not start the car.


Sounds like a bad alternator. Boost vehicle and when running disconnect positive on battery, if shuts down probably alternator no good, replace.

My battery dies but it checks ok 12 volt when the car is off and between 13 and 14 when on but if it sits for a few hours it wont even turn over and all the lights just start to flash


Sounds like a current drain, probably something you can't see. Start by removeing the glovebox light & boot light. If still happens hook an amp metere up between the batry terminal & batry wire with key off & check if there is any drain. Note: you will need your radio code if your radio is security radio

Car will shut down at random times. There is no pattern to it either. It will shut down at a traffic light, on the highway, or on city streets. I have power everywhere else: lights, radio, and everything...


It could be an electrical problem or a fuel problem somewhere, but I suspect the CPS (crankshaft position sensor) is going bad. When this starts going out, the car will shut off at anytime, but it will sometimes start right back up and sometimes a couple of hours. But I will say, if this is the problem it will leave you stranded. Good Luck.

Have the battery and alternator checked by a mechanic or auto parts store. As it is, it would seem your battery needs to be replaced, but if your alternator is bad then your battery may be good and you would just need to replace the alternator and charge the battery.

Van won't start


sounds like you need a new alternator.the battery light is triggered by the diode trio in the alternator. if the light comes on.99 times out of a 100 you need to have your alternator replaced.have your charging system checked first. most parts stores check them for free.with the engine running it should be around 14.5 volts.
