if the light is flashing it most like hasly some sort of misfire or converter failure, p0171 and p0174 is lean bank 1 and 2, replace you upper and lower plenum gaskets, while they have they off have they replace your ignition coil, plugs and wires, windstars are known for 2 things, lean codes,(plenum gaskets) misfire(bad ignition coil)

It could mean the alternator has gone bad already... with the car off, the battery leads should read 11-12V.. with the car on, the battery should read 13-14V.. if it's lower then it's not charging your battery and if it's higher, it's damaging your battery....

Testimonial: "thanks so much for your advice...will have this checked into :)"
put a volt meter on the battery when you get the problem to occur, I have run into intermittent problems and found that when cranking the battery voltage drops below 9 volts and when the voltage drops below 9 the pcm powertrain control module does not know what to do and will cause the problem you are talking about, if it drops below 9 volts check and clean power and ground connections and have you battery tested, your local autozone will test it for free, and most likely your battery is going bad. and auto zone installs batteries for free also.
