Sounds like alternator is not charging
check output voltage , many stores that sell auto parts are able to check it for free if you are unable to do it yourself

2001 ford windstar won't start


does it have the halo around the ignition switch for anti theft? ive seen a lot of those fail and need replaced. on a side note be careful jumping the start on those vans,if the ecm doesnt start it sometimes it wont shut it off either. could be the resistor in the key too.

You need to have the factory security system scanned, it is most likely locking you out due to a fault.

Ford Windstar 1999 only starts with jump start, new fuel pump, battery and alternator. Got it changed few days back. Ran fine for some time and then same problem again. Jump start it and it runs fine and...


You will need to check on a drain current check on the battery .Connect an ammeter or a multimeter is 1 amp range( do not switch on any powers please or you will damage the meter)
Now reduce range to see the drain voltage , there will be a possible drain of the remote control unit, the clock or the Audio set( for memory)If over about 100-200mA then start to discconnecct the fuse in the fuse box till you get teh circuit of drain to finally point out. Repair the device in suspect.

Car wont stay running even at a idle


It sounds like your alternator is almost done. Thats power distribution right there. If your alternator doesnt work, your car will run for a minute or two on battery power. Then it will kill the battery. If your car starts, its not the injection system, but you might need fuel injector cleaner to just run through your fuel injection system. To check the alternator, get someone to jump your car. leave the cables connected for about five minutes letting the car run. If it still dies, you need to clean your fuel injection system. If it doesnt die, its your alternator. A alternator costs about a hundred bucks.

Battery draining fast


I would check the alternator again, it apparently isn't charging the battery with engine running. You need a volt meter or amp meter to test this. Also does the battery discharge when the car is not running?
