We had this same problem with our Windstar. We confused our mechanic (whom changed the O2 sensor), then had to give up and send it to the dealership. They checked all the wiring, the brain box, the ignition, changed the fuel pump...
Turns out, it was the fuel filter.
On the anti-theft light: are you sure it's a functional anti-theft system? Apparently, although all windstars have the anti-theft light, most of them are just that: lights that flash when the car's off.

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

There is a brake light switch operated via the brake pedal. Once the switch wears out there is nothing to activate the brake lights. You will have to have the brake light switch replaced if a check of the vehicles wiring for the lighting is shown to be all in order.
