You need to check the charging system. Sounds like vehicle not charging, running on battery. May need an alternator.

All I have ever owned are Ford windstars, they have treated me very well. You have an alternator problem. If it was the battery the van would not deliver any charge at all once it becomes insufficent enough to do so (Ford = smart ) So this is your alternator. I am a service writer for Canadian Tire in PEI, Canada.

Sound like one of the door jamb switches is bad. Try taking a pencil or screw driver and pushing in on each door switch. Push the switch beyond the "flush" point to see if the switch is just not fully closing.

The head lights and the fog lights have seperate fuses in the fuse panel under the dash. If the fuse is blown, you might possibly have a short. Hope this helps.
