Might be your ignition switch, or a fusable link from you battery. The switch makes more sense but i have no idea why it would screw up while you were driving. Usuall y that happens when you're starting it or shutting it off.

Check the fuel pump. When it doesn't provide fuel, the van won't start, but everything else works.

Replaced starter and key switch 96 windstar won't start have power to starter


A metal activator rod generally moves back and forth along the steering column from the key lock to the ignition switch (generally mounted on the steering column. If the rod had been dislodged or the ignition switch had shifted position during your pervious efforts, turning the key will not allow the voltage to get to the starter.

Be prepare to be very uncomfortable twisted around under the dash and steering column. :(

My 2000 Ford Windstar LX is randomly losing all power & shutting down for 2-5 seconds while driving. Everything stops working ( like theres no battery in the car ), then it comes back and starts right...


If you just had your battery replaced recently before that, Either your positive or negitive terminal is probably loose and needs tightened. It may get jarred around, and do that shutdown your 2-3 times, until something jars it to a better connecting position.
