Question about 1999 Ford Windstar
I think your right about the starter being bad.
When you turn the key, it will draw all the energy that it can from the battery. That's why your dash-lights go out.
When you take it in to be replaced, have them test out the old and the new starter.
I've gotten a defective starter before that was brand new.

I have the same problem. I am half way through. I removed the starter but don't think that is it. The van always starts when jumped. The driving lights, clock, and radio work even though the key is not in the ignition. Something must not be disengaging and drains the battery in a few hours as if the key is on!!
