Question about 2001 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

Van won't start 2001 Ford Windstar, worked perfectly last night when parked. Wont Start now. Does not appear to be a battery issue. I do hear a slight whirring sound that might be the fuel pump, I also here a click that comes from the engine compartment. There are no obvious problems, ie blown fuses, loose wires. Thanks

If it does absolutely nothing when you turn the key but you're SURE the battery is good or tried to jump it, it sounds like an interlock problem. there are several things that could be causing it but I would concentrate either on the gear shift interlock (has to be in park before it will engage the electrical system when starting) or the key itself. First thing I would do is (with my foot on the brake), shift it through all the gears then make sure it's in park then try it again.

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, van has been setting for a year, got my license back and went to start the van, no fuel pump noise, replaced fuel pump, started just fine drove it around for a day parked it now wo


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.

98 ford windstar has clicking noise under dash and won't start


The clicking noise is most likly the starter solinoid cycling in and out. This is due to low battery voltage. charge the battery, then have the battery and charging system tested. Some auto supply stores will do this for free for you in the hopes of selling parts

good luck
