I trust you DID NOT use a Battery Charger and put the negative side of the charger on your battery post. Positive connection is OK, but the Neg. needs to be on the cars body or you can damage the solenoid or starter section. In some cases the Cars Brain can be damaged and cause all sorts of unusual things to happen.

SOURCE: When I start my car

Most major auto part stores are able to diagnos most of you problems. I would go in and have them check you battery, starter, and alternator. I would buy a batery cleaning kit and some terminal pads and some protectant spray. Check you posative cable its the one that goes to the solenoid, and then check the ground its the one that goes to the block make sure that they aren't broken or burnt threw in the midle. If they are good just clean them and put them back on with the teminal posts that you baught, this will keep them from getting nasty in the future, and spray them down with the protectant that you baught, this will keep oxidation from building up on them also. The rest of the information will come from the guy at the auto part store, and they will tell you what you need to buy.

2000 windstar with a 3.8 motor cranks slow then stops and no start .Acts like a dead battery battery is good what can it be?


Bad connection or corroded cables, possibly a bad starter. Sounds like something is drawing more amps than the battery is capable of supplying.

You need to have the factory security system scanned, it is most likely locking you out due to a fault.

2002 Windstar sport was working great, pulled in for gas and would not start. It sounded like the battery was dead but in a few minutes started. Went about 2 blocks and it stalled and will not start again....


One possibility is the wire between the battery and the fuse-relay box next to it. That wire may be corroded at the battery post or at the other end and not making contact.
Could also be the ignition switch.

You may have a dead battery. You may even need to jump the battery back to life. Check fuel levels, spark plugs, etc. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

I have a 02 ford windstar. 3.8L does not start or do anything, Has a brand new Battery about a month ago Checked all fuses and they all have power. When you turn the key to start nothing happens, no...


A few things I can think of are the starting circuit of the ignition switch, the neutral saftey switch, the starter solenoid, a fusible link, and a bad connection.
