Question about 1996 Ford Windstar
Has happend 3 time, when i crank the wheel to the point that it squeals or whines to make a sharp slow turn, the car dies on me. No warning , no sound, just dead.
I took 5 minutes to restart the first time, started right up the second, but had to restart the car several times the third time. The car runs fine other then that. Upon taking the panal off to see the steering column better i did find the the steering wheel is NOT sitting in the bracket properly. Could that have something to do with it. I have a similar problem with the '96 Windstar. Stalls or won't start with the wheels turned. I have to straighten the wheels to restart the Van.
Windstar has a pressure switch on the pressuer line to the rack and pinion, squeeze the plug and pull up to disconect it and see if it happens again. you might have a short in one of these wires or the switch ... to reach the switch it is mounted on top of the power steering rack so reach down behind the motor on the driver side or crawl under and reach up on driver side
