Is this a 2002 Windstar? (windstar02).
You need 14 volts at battery when engine is running. I assume the BAT light is not on?
If not, there is a wiring issue between the alernator B wire (the big one) on the alternator and the battery. You could overlay a 12 gauge wire from the alternator to the battery as a test.
Check the ground cable connections too.
Check the Yellow & white wire from the alternator through 2 grey fusible links (could be burned) to the red wire (positive battery cable). Maybe one of the fuse links fired or both. Then why did they fry.

SOURCE: 2002 volkswagon bug wouldn't start, diagnostic said it was the speed sensor, but the guy said the battery was fried and that the speed sensor wouldn't affect is starting, so he changed out the
He is correct the speed sensor is used by the transmission controller and antilock brake system the engine controller uses this sensor but not for starting purposes
