First off why were you welding on this vehicle. Check your conections make sure they are tight on the battery if not there is your problem. if that dosnt fix it try jump starting it. if you are not getting any luck than you need to check your fueses probally the fuse that says ECU. sometimes these will pop when you are messing with the battery and there is a surge. Also if you were welding anywhere close to any wires check the wires to see if they were effected in any way. If you need futher help you can e-mail me at coopscuztoms@gmail.com

Why won't my 1998 ford windstar start?


Sounds like a typical failure caused by corrosion at the battery terminals or the terminating ends at the chassis (negative) ground point, the starter or starter solenoid.
To clean these, always disconnect the NEGATIVE battery terminal first and re-connect it last.

If you already haven't lost it, your alarm system and radio may not be accessible without reentering one- check before disconnecting.
A simple device available at parts stores that uses a 9 Volt block battery can protect against this loss for hours.

2002 ford windstar first wouldnt start, jumped and started, drove 200 miles and turn


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

1999 Ford Windstar problem starting


I'd clean the MAF sensor and maybe replace the fuel filter.
When you get it running again,put a can of the best fuel system cleaner in the tank and run it a while.
Anytime you disconnect the battery the computer relearns your driving habits the next few times you run it. It might even run a little rough the first few miles.
Also,run that stored(old) gas out and then refill with quality Marathon or Shell.

Is the alt charging the battery does it run long dist fine ? If it does you have a drain some where something is corroded inside a eletrical connection cause a drain on battery over night .You need a amp meter disconnect the poss battery cable and connect the meter inline one temp to battery term the other to cable end . reading should be less then 500 millaamp or half a amp it may be 7 or 800 at first but car needs time to go into sleep mode then should drop to 500 if not start to remove fuse until it does then youll know what circuits to check.most of time its a light bulb

Can i by bypass my car alram


The car alarm on your 2000 Windstar minivan is wired into your van's battery. When you are making a repair to your car such as a battery change out your alarm can go off. You can easily disable the Windstar's car alarm by disconnecting the battery from the alarm. The battery is connected to the Windstar battery's negative terminal. Disconnecting the terminal from the battery will disable the alarm.

  • Socket wrench
  1. 1 Raise the hood of the Windstar to gain access to the battery.
  2. 2 Loosen the negative battery terminal labeled with a "-" with a socket wrench.
  3. 3 Disconnect the terminal from the battery to disable the alarm system.
