Question about 1999 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

No lights or heater till van shut off. Then won't restart.

The headlights and heater shut off in the van. When it was shut off it wouldn't restart. Although now the headlights work, until a battery cable was removed. Doesn't sound like a battery issue, sounds electrical related.

Dashboard lights and gauges go out, windows won't work


Your alternator is out. Those are classic symptoms of alternating going out. The alternator recharges your electrical system and when it goes out a list of strange things go on inside the dash, and you won't be able to go very far on just a battery. I'm glad you at least made it home. But yes you will need a new alternator for sure. Please rate this response so I can get my ratings back up to 90% at least.

does the van stall going down the road or at idle? the won't change gears at 4000 rpm and the no start condition unless disconnect the negative cable sounds more like a computer problem. when the cable is diconnected the ECM and the TCM have to go thru a relearn process which can be some of your issues. have your mechanic do a quick learn on the trans module to see if it helps the shifting problem. the ECM on the other hand can throw out codes that can make you chase your tail and end up replacing every sensor and still have the smae problem. you may want to check for corrosion at the ECM connections.

You have to roll up all the windows lock all the doors and use your key to unlock on of the front doors or the trunk when the alarm is going off. I don't remember which it was. Remember all doors must be closed and locked with the windows up for this to work.
