There is no power to turn on my 2000 ford windstar. Ive changed the battery, the starter and the alternator yet nothing. I think that it might be the computer module. Does this make any sense?

Your problem could be a blown fuse or bad ignition switch or bad battery wires themselves

If you have a tester, check if you have voltage going to your starter relay. If there is none, trace back where you loose the voltage. If you have the check engine light off before attempting to start, check out the computer box and its fuse.

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.

Your problem sounds exactly like my problem on my 2000 windstar. I dont know if I did anything but on mine electrical power has been restored. The reason I say I don't know if I did anything is everything fuses, relays, fuse links, etc all checked out okay. I noticed on mine a strange thing I have voltage on my ground ( it sparks whenever I disconnect reconnect any ground wire. In fact I think this is what caused my power to come back on line when I was doing just that with the ground connections. I then found that my van turns over nicely with the new battery I installed. I have fire on the cylinders I checked. I even can start my van now holding down manually the relay that controls the fuel pump. I now think all of these odd things are resulting from the computer(PCM). If you think we can help each other further please feel free to email me at Caryp8@aol.com.

#1 Try starting the car in Neutral, if no start replace the Park and Neutral safty switch. #2 Check for a faulty starter solenoid. #3 Check for a faulty stsrter motor. #4 Check for a faulty ignition switch. #5 Check for faulty starter Relays.#6 Check the Transmission Range sensor it could be out of adjustment or defective. #7 On 1998 and later models, the power relay is in the power distribution box in the engine compartment. Refer to your owners manual for more information on relay location. Good Luck From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.

Your not on a fishing trip

If you suspect the battery,charge it fully and have it tested

For the starter,starter solenoid,you need experience in how to test

The Alternator has nothing to do with starting the vehicle

Education and a really good, close by repair shop,before you need one

2000 ford windstar will not turn on


when u changed the ECM did you have it matched to the PCM or immobiliser ? , normally these need a Pc to reset these to the motor
you should have a small and large power lead going to the starter motor, when you turn key to crank position the small feed on starter should power up,if not check that happens at the ign switch, or it may be if your car is an auto the switch in the gear selector may have gone , or if manual the clutch pedal switch ,

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.
