Question about 1995 Ford Windstar
Your alternator is getting hot and tearing the belt apart. The bearings in your alternator must be freezing up/worn out. Replace the alternator. You may need a new belt as well if you ran it this way for a while. As far as the onboard computer not being on the right setting, this should not be the case, unless you have an aftermarket, programmable computer. Other than that, your ECM should be fine if the vehicle runs. Start by installing a new alternator. Just last week I fixed a vehicle where the alternator was overheating, and black dust was surrounding the alternator by the pulley. This is due to worn out bearings. If you still have problems after replacing the alternator, let me know and I will help you out. Thank you for choosing Fixya.com!
