Question about 2000 Ford Windstar

2 Answers

A friend's 2000 Ford Windstar headlights, inside lights, and all lights come on after you cut the vehicle off and take the key out of the ignition and close the door. Actually, it should probably do the opposite. He replaced the electronic box that controls the lights, horn, etc., but that didn't work. Help!

It has a sentinel than minds the lights so you can exit safely, in the dark. Check the settings for lighting as they may have gotten thrown off. It is normal for the lights to come on after you remove the key, but they are on a timer and should extinguish within a minute or two.

Open the driver door and check the wiring between the driver door and the body (inside the rubber protector) which leads to the fuse box. It may be old and brittle or just broken. Re solder the wire and protect with electrical tape if broken.

     You have broken wires in the flexable harness between the door and the body. Pull the rubber boot back to inspect.

SOURCE: 99 Ford Windstar Back door replacement

If I recall the wiring plugs in at the top you may be able to pull the plug with out droping the back of the headliner, But I am not sure, if not pull the two clips in the rear and one uper side panel for access. You will need someone to help yu remove the door. After you get the wiring loose at the roof and the washer hose, remove one nut/bolt out of each hinge at the door frame, and loosen the other two, remove the gas lift shocks by using a small screw driver to pry the clip back on the end that attaches to the door while some holds the door up, then remove the last two bolt/nuts in the door hinges, and remove the door. If you need to use parts on the old door like the lock cylinder yoou will need to remove the inner plastic panel to gain access to the clip that holds the cylinder. Replace in reverse order and adjust to fit properly before tightning the bolts at the hinges, then snap lift shocks back on and replug harness at roof and washer hose. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2000 ford windstar... electrical mess!!

one reason for that fuse to blow is a bad brake pressure switch on the master cylinder. could be a
warranty/recall item. can also leak brake fluid. also check behind each wheel for any sign of brake fluid,
particularly the rear wheels if you have rear drum brakes. fixed one here recently where the vehicle's jack
came loose in the right rear compartment and short that circuit. make sure your jack is stowed properly.

good luck

How to find an electrical disturbance in 1998 ford expedition


Normally this condition is the result of a poor body ground connection. Testing for this can be deceiving. At the static(nothing on) condition, testing can show a good ground. However when a circuit is excited, it has a determined resistance and a set current flow. If the ground connection to this or a branch circuit is loose, corroded, or broken wire. This will allow just enough connection to show as being good, but not good enough to complete the circuit with the required amount of connection when energized.

I have a ford windstar 2000 LX and it won't start! Please help me!!


Hi,
Ok first you need to make sure that the battery was put back in correctly. Positive terminal to positive battery cable.Then if that is correct, check the main fuse's right next to the battery area, they are large and square ensure non of these are broken, or fused.Check all the fuse's in the other fuse box in the engine bay area and also inside the vehicle.
Let me know how you get on.
Thanks
Jason

I just recently purchased a 2000 Ford Windstar. The headlight on the passenger side will not work. I have replace the headlamp and the fuse to that part....still to no avail...no light. Could you help me...


If you bought your truck at a licensed dealership or used car lot, most states require that if the vehicle will not pass inspection, the seller must repair the vehicle at their expense. First check for corrosion in the headlamp bulb socket. Also check the headlight relay and for damaged wiring between the bulb, relay and fuse box.
