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

I have a 2003 windstar . all at once as I started

what does ford dealer say about the issue? call the service guy, if he sez" bring it in", do not bother. pull off both the + and - battery cables. Let stand for a few minutes, clean the battery posts while u wait. clean inside of cable connections. put a lil Vaseline on the battery posts. then reconnect. if no-start condition still exists, hav car scanned. advanced auto will scan for free?! lol.

My ford windstar 2000 , will not start, completely dead battery, was very cold this morning. but also a problem with the brake light coming on by itself and not turning off either when stopped.

Radio changing from radio to cd by itself on my 2000 ford windstar while driving

It most likely is a radio problem. I would try swaping radio. Ebay or junkyard would be a good place to start.
