Question about 1999 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

Power cuts out on start

I have a 1999 Ford Windstar, It has been running great for the last 94K miles. Today I went to start, there was a click and all power shut off. The power does not return on it's own. While checking all the fuses I removed the positive battery cable, when I was done checking the fuses I replace the cable. Power was restored. Trying to start again did the same thing. It does have a new transmission installed by a dealer. The battery is good. All the key positions work until turning it to start. Any ideas please help.

2000 Ford Winstar, 80000 miles on it just bought


Seeing as how no one ever changes trans fluid and all vehicles tend to have some trans issues,I would say your best bet is to check with a trans shop and if your comfortable there, have it towed. Unless it is something simple,expect about a $2000.00 repair bill.

I just replaced the battery and the alternator on my 99 ford windstar with new ones. I drove it for 2 miles and the battery light came on indicating that the battery is not charging. It has the 3.8 V6, any...


Your alternator is not putting out any power. To check the alternator, when the motor is running, check the voltage at the battery. If the voltage is not between 13.8 and 14.2 volts, the alternator is malfunctioning. Chances are that the alternator killed your last battery. Make sure that the belt is at the proper tension so that the alternator is producing the voltage neccessary to charge the battery.

My windstar was horrid for relays that needed to be replaced.... locate the relay(s) that control the power doors and replace them.
