Question about 2000 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

I started my 2000 windstar in the morning. it started fine but I had no dash lights, no turnsignals, no radio or fan or any door locks. I had headlights and no speedo/rpm/ the only thing that came on was the seat belt sign. do you know of this problem. I drove it to work that day and when I came out to start it after work everything was working again...

Its a confirm loose connection is dash.the wires got bit moved and needs to be wiggled to get reconnected. And it got reconnected while the car was running and it started working.In some cases the dash lights and other functions stops working after the car gets warmed up but then starts after it cools down.Also the short has to be checked in both the headlight and dimmer switch in dash.But as the problem is solved for now ,but if it repeats then first check the switches then check the wirings.Just check out for any loose wire getting out of its connection.The wires are at the back of dash it has to be removed to check the wires. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

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.

Check your fuses under hood and on dash. Some of these use two different fuses for rt. & lt. Look in you owners manual for the correct fuses to check. If it is a fuse problem, you will have to find out why the fuse was blown. Good luck
