Whenever it rains the van shows fuel err and will not start until I wiggle computer many times...nothing is wet under hood but its a problem every time it rains and its getting tiresome.


Find out whether all FSBs have been incorporated. Check battery age and condition. Find out whether alternator and starter are due for replacement. My 2000 Windstar is on its seventh battery. Many earlier problems were traced to battery failure.

sounds like an alternator not charging. You should have 12 1/2 volts with engine off and 14 1/2 volts with engine running if alternator is working.

My 2000 Ford Windstar LX is randomly losing all power & shutting down for 2-5 seconds while driving. Everything stops working ( like theres no battery in the car ), then it comes back and starts right...


If you just had your battery replaced recently before that, Either your positive or negitive terminal is probably loose and needs tightened. It may get jarred around, and do that shutdown your 2-3 times, until something jars it to a better connecting position.

Ford Windstar (2000) will just shut off


If your Windstar has the original fuel pump, it could be time for replacement. Also, you may be having some of the chronic battery problems. You may have to find out from a Ford dealer whether all of the service bulletin changes have been made.
