SOURCE: 2000 ford windstar won't crank over,but pats keys good, and batt.

First thing I would check is to see if you have power at the trigger wire of the starter motor while someone is trying to start the vehicle for you. It will be a Yellow with a light blue trace. If you do then I would check to see if the main battery cable has power to it all the time when someone is trying to crank it. If it does then I would hold a test light on the case of the starter motor and have someone try to crank it. Make sure that the ground you use for this test is on the negative battery terminal not just anywhere on the car. If the test light lights while you are cranking it then you have a bad ground. Hook up a set of jumper cables from the battery negative terminal and clamp it directly on to your starter motor and see if it starts. If you check it and the test light doesn't light up and all the other checks are good then your starter motor has failed. If one of the other tests has failed then you have a starter relay problem or something else. let me know what you find out.

SOURCE: ford escort 1997 doors wont open

OK the stereo code will need to come from the dealer if it is a factory stereo ..this comes on most all makes and models as an Anti-theft preventative measure ...unless you have the owners Manuel and hope someone wrote the code down someplace within it ...

as far as the doors are concerned a mere few days should not make any difference as opposed to a few years .., you replaced the battery and now they are self locking ....have you tried to disconnect the negative terminal to the battery for about 2 minutes and see if the computer may reset itself im not 100 for certain this will clear the issue but worth a try
yes if after you do that my only other thought would be something such as a wire is crossed or shorting out on the body someplace possibly between the door and the actual jamb in the rubber boot or there a bouts try if you get access to it ...if disconnecting the lock switch and using a test light to see if you have constant power or none at all to the switch itself and trace the wires "Visually" and then with the test light as far as power is concerned up to the switch ........are you using a remote ? or just the Key.sounds like a ground issue if it is power locks .? if not power locks then i deeply suggest removal of the inner door panel { and yes i know exactly how much or a pain doing this will be especially without the door open but with a bit of patience and a light to see you can do it have you tried to push in on the door while opening it ...let see ...does the door handle seem as if its hooked up ? or does it just flop around freely ....if its freely the door rod is most likely off and needs reconnecting hmmm this is the stuff i wish i was there to see for myself .
it may even be possible for you to reach in through even the smallest of opening with a bit of bending open the door to better examine the issue ....

How can I bypass an immobilizer on Ford Escort td 1998

Assume you have the PATS system with the transponder pellet in the black key? If yes, I have researched this thoroughly for one of my cars, and there is no easy bypass. Do you have at least one factory key that works? If yes, I have found a way to bypass the ignition switch so that you can use any hardware store key to operate the car. I took my one factory key and put in permanently into the tranceiver. Now I just use plain $2 keys to run the car. Will this work for you or what exactly is the issue you are dealing with?

Can you tell me the tappet settings for a ford escort rs 2000 1979

Adjust with engine cold.
Standard camshaft:
Inlet : 0.2mm (0.008")
Exhaust 0.25mm (0.010")
Loosen bottom lock-nut. Adjust with top nut. Fasten locknut and check. The clearance will be slightly too tight. Loosen bottom again, adjust and re-tighten till you get it right.

I want to bypass my 99 ford f150 alarm system

If you are talking about the PATS system, no way to do it. There is no factory alarm from Ford, if it is a Ford OEM system, it was added at the dealer. The 97 & 98 has a factory alarm system, but this was deleted after the introduction of PATS in 1999.
