Question about 2001 Ford Windstar
I had this problem. i thought it was a parasitic drain but...
check your charging system. with the van running, check the voltage output accross the battery terminals. if its less than 14.1 check the inline fuse for the alternator (close to the alternator) if ok, replace the voltage regulator inside the alternator.
if the charging system is putting out 14+ volts then you need to start pulling fuses while van is off while monitoring the current draw between the positive battery post and the positive terminal clamp watching for a current drop. keep in mind the windstar will drain alot of current while off for the first 2 mins er so, then it will drop again in about 15 mins... time delay shutdown on several systems :)
