Battery drainage on 99 ford windstar

Aftermarket radio set up to play when no key in ignition? Or CB? or aftermarket alarm system?

If so- those can put a phantom load on the battery when it is shut down.

If you do not have those installed, does your fuel pump continue to run? If so- try swapping the fuel pump relay if that does not remedy it, replace the oil presure switch it may be stuck closed.

your vehicle electrical system (anything that needs power) runs on the charging system (altenator). The only thing the battery does is start the vehicle unless your charging system is not working then it will use the battery until all the power is gone in it and then you will have nothing, like the symtems you wrote about. It sounds like a classic case of a bad alternator. I would start by charging up your battery and see if it will start then, I'm guessing it will. If it does start check your charging system. Most of your local auto part stores will do this for free for you. To my memory (not perfect though) there isn't a fuse for the altenator so that's most likely what is bad. That's where I would start and that's what i do for a living. I hope this helps you and good luck.

Sounds like the Altenator has died, you have been running on the battery alone. If you give the battery a good charge, you can go quite a while as long as you turn off as many accesories as possible. good luck

99 avalon starts runs fine shut off wont start unless jumped then continues to start several tinn=mes until this happens again?

Sounds like either the voltage regulator or altenator is bad. Most part stores will test altenator, battery, and starter for free in the vehicle or out. Double check relays and cable connections
