I have seen this problem many times. Open the hood and remove the battery connectors. Scrub them with a wire brush and reconnect tightly. It doesn't make sense...I know. I have seen this problem probably 5 times. Having said that, you can also check the fuel pump shutoff. It is a red button that is probably located in the rear of the van in the jack compartment. If it isn't there, open the hood and there should be a sticker telling you where it is. If that is ok, check the starter solenoid and the starter.

My 2001 ford windstar wont start-lights come on-but wont take a charge-help


Eventually, you will be replacing the battery (My 2000 Windstar is on its seventh one). Ford may have issued a factory service bulletin (FSB) for 2001 that applied to your vehicle.

2001 ford windstar mini van all the doors lock except the drivers door. When I hit the lock button on the key fob everything locks but drivers door. What's up with that


One of the four power feeds to the front electronic module could be missing. Check fuses 113, 2, 14, and 11 in the battery junction box.
Another possibility is that the left door lock actuator is defective.

Can you hear the fuel pump run, if not it may have failed again. I have seen new fuel pumps last a day or two and then fail. If your pump is working then replace the fuel filter. Anytime you open the fuel system, you should replace the filter.

This sounds like an alternator problem. have the battery and charging system tested. this test will tell you if the battery is good and also if the alternator is good.

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.
