Question about 1999 Ford Windstar
Make sure your battery is fully charged. If the battery is fully charged make sure your starter is engaging, or trying to start the van. If it just clicks or sounds like it is spinning really fast have your starter checked. You can remove it and most auto parts stores will check it for free or mechanic shops might charge a small fee to do it. If the starter is trying to turn over the van and it won't crank you may have bigger problems. If the starter won't turn over the engine you can check it yourself by trying to turn over ther engine by hand. You will need to remove the spark plugs and turn it by putting a socket and ratchet on the harmonic balancer retaining nut and turning that. If the engine won't turn or is very difficult to turn with the spark plugs removed then you could have internal damage. You'll have to decide at that point wether it's something you want to do or get professional help. Gl
