Your battery is either not keeping the charge (12 volts) or not being charged at all (alternator)

2002 ford winstar will not start clicking, get a job it starts but once you start driving it shuts off


Your alternator is probably bad. When you jump it , it puts a charge in the battery. The van will run until the charge is gone. This is what the alternator is supposed to do, keep the charge in the battery and run the engine.

Driving van down the road and the RPM shot right up and the vehicle started to slow down. Stepped on gas, no movement but RPM still went up. Stopped van and it would stay in park but would not engage any...


I had a Ford Winstar van that had this problem. There is an acceleration switch near the firewall on the passenger side that needs replacing. Unless you're very good under the hood, see a mechanic as it's a totall B**ch to get to the darn thing!

You said you tightened the battery cables, did you check the other end of the negative where it bolts to the engine. When you tightened the cables you also used a battery brush and cleaned the posts and ends?

Our 1998 Ford windstar has went all EXORCIST in dash board etc.


at the minimum, since you mentioned all the idiot lights coming on, your alternator is fried. have someone put in a new alternator. if it's still acting up, have someone go over the computer.

Van won't start


sounds like you need a new alternator.the battery light is triggered by the diode trio in the alternator. if the light comes on.99 times out of a 100 you need to have your alternator replaced.have your charging system checked first. most parts stores check them for free.with the engine running it should be around 14.5 volts.
