There are various fault code that the engine light represents. Get the computer scanned and see what exactly the problem is. It may be a miss fire, or it could also be something else. You said that you just put gas in it...double check the gas cap. Take it off and put it back on. If it is loose, that will set off an emissions code. Hope this helpls.

In Windstar models the problem can be caused by the side sliding door contacts, but either of the two other switches in the right and left doors can also cause the light to blink on at times or just stay lighted. The issue is most noticed when the van is turned hard right or left when driving or on a rough road. A Ford dealer can run a test with a special scanner and ID exactly which switch is at fault.

It's going to have to be looked at. But you can try unlocking a different door with the key. Hold it to the left (unlock position) for 2 or three seconds. Should shut off the alarm and allow you to start it.

1998 windstar van


All these systems are controlled by the GEM, that is the Generic Electronic Module, have Kragen run a quick test and see if the system has codes, but most likely the Module is defective, it is located on top of the fuse panel to the left of the steering column. I have 30 years as a Ford tech so I am pretty darn sure of this diagnose.
