SOURCE: washer fluid pump will not work, on my 2001 Ford Windstar

Check for power to the pump, making sure the wiring is not severed. Check the fluid lines, and especially the tips. If the pump operates and still no washer solution check the tips. The solution dries right at the tips and is so thick and crystalized that no spray is possible.

  1. Turn the ignition switch lock cylinder to the RUN position.
  1. Place a 3.17-mm (1/8-inch) diameter wire pin or small drift punch in the hole in the steering column shroud under the ignition switch lock cylinder. Depress the retaining pin while pulling out on the ignition switch lock cylinder to remove it from the housing of the steering column.
Installation

SOURCE: Battery keeps dying on 2001 Ford Windstar.

Check your battery terminals make sure they are clean and corrosion free.
Also check all ...A-L-L courtesy lights in your car. there are some ceiling mounted lights that are passenger operated and may be on... Also check your glove compartment and consoles for lights.
Also check for charger cords... These have indicator lights and sometimes can drain the batt as well.
Also, under the hood, is a gravity activated lamp . Open the hood and make sure that it's going off and staying off as the hood closes...
Let me know if you find anything...

your nuetral/brake switch is in need of replacement. You can bypass it by unplugging the switch but dont leave it unplugged while you drive you will not have brake lights. I had the same issue and that is what fixed it.

I bought a ford windstar van from a lady who lost the keys to it they broke the ignition i replaced the ignition but now the alarm wont quit what do i do


This vehicle is equipped with PAT (Passive Anti Theft). You will not be able to remedy your problem until the ECM is paired with the new ignition and key. This must be done through the dealership.
