Question about 2000 Ford Windstar
If the vehilce has been driven for about 10 minutes and then shut off it fails to start. The engine will not turn over at all, its like the shifter is in drive and you try to start it. Also recently the remote car starter was disconnected thinking this was the problem, One other thing is that the O/D light will flash when vehicle is parked, but once you start to drive, the O/D light goes out. If you let the van sit for about 2 hours it will restart no problem, also I disconnected the battery after it failed to start before and this seemed to reset something and was able to start the van. Any suggestions?
Mine only flashes when I start the engine. Once I place it in drive it stops and operates normally. This includes up and down shiftsing. If I place the tranny uner a load when the light is flashing (it flashes for about 10 secinds then it will chatter.
Maybe its a clogged transmission filter? Obviously is a fluid pressure problem. I drove it 5000 miles with this problem and it seems to not affected the tranny. Some folks talk about the Neutral Start switch. with 185K and a rebuilt tranny at 120K I am not going to invest $3000 to replace it
