Question about 2001 Ford Windstar
Need to check a few things .is there spark and is the gas coming to the motor. turn the key and listen for a biz noise from the gas tank, if you got that then the fuel pump is working, you need to see if you have any spark to the spark plug. if there is no spark then you need a crank position sensor

Hello first of all
well i am sorry a mechanic cant figure this out its really sad. ok so your problem is your either one of two things but most likely the first one i list.
1. camshaft postion sensor
2. crankshaft postion sensor
Now that being said it most likely the camshaft sensor the reason i say that is when a crankshaft postion sensor is bad the car has very hard starts and most of the time no start issues. When a camshaft postion sensor is bad the car cuts off whil driving and can be hard to start up again.
So that being said they are both pretty cheap parts i would go ahead and replace them both and i would bet my 5 years as ford mechanic that solves your issue.
The crank postion sensor is located behind the harmonic balancer pully or right beside it here is a picture from autozone.com and description.
The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM).
And the camshaft sensor picture and info from autozone.com below.
The camshaft position sensor identifies position of the camshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM).
The crankshaft postion sensor is 22.99 and the cam is 19.99 so 50.00 bucks and about hours time should have you up and running.
PS if this helps please 4 thumbs up it helps me continue to help on here thanks

SOURCE: the car won't start; lights,
Check the starter and the starter relay or fuse. A client of mines car was doing the same thing, it ended up being two issues, the starter not working anymore, and a relay that was bad. If I am not mistaken everything should be labeled in the fuse box under the hood and will tell you where the fuse/ relay is for your vehicle
