Question about 2000 Ford Windstar
Hi my 2000 Windstar had the starter changed and it started really good, tested it about 5 times and it worked fine.
About an hour later I started it within 5 minutes it turned off and when I tried to started it again it would not start, even the dash warning lights won't light up.
I checked the battery and it was fine, I checked the starter and alternator and they were good and electricity was reaching them.
I checked all the related fuses, in the inside of the car and in the motor and they were good. Even when those places register power the car is electrically dead. Nothing seems to work when I turned the switch on (I checked the switch and it was ok.).
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
I JUST HAD THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM ON MY 2000 WINDSTAR SEL LAST WEEK..IT WAS JUST ELECTRICALLY DEAD..I CHECKED OVER THAT THING WITH A FINE TOOTH COMB AND COULD NOT AT FIRST FIND THE PROBLEM..WELL AS IT TURNS OUT, MY INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WAS BAD AND IT WAS CAUSING ALL THIS HAVICK !!! I REPLACED THE CLUSTER ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THE DEALERSHIP HAD TO PROGRAM IT BEFORE THE VEHICLE WOULD START DUE TO THE ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM..IM NOT SURE IF THIS IS YOUR PROBLEM BUT IT IS IDENTICAL TO MINE AND I REALLY HOPE THIS HELPS..
P.S.-I GOT MY CLUSTER AT A JUNKYARD BECAUSE A NEW ONE CAN BE PRICEY !!
