Why won't it start?


The flashing theft light is normal. The battery that "checks out good" may failing under load. My 2000 Windstar is on its seventh battery.

2000 FORD WINDSTAR will not start


Try crossing the largher of the two posts on the solenoid switch neer the battery or on the fierwall under a plastic cover.If the starter cranks the,replace the solenoid,if there is still no cranking happening replace the starter[better yet the starter brushes,way cheaper].If the van turns over but doesn't go then get back to me.
