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.

It's going to have to be looked at. But you can try unlocking a different door with the key. Hold it to the left (unlock position) for 2 or three seconds. Should shut off the alarm and allow you to start it.

Power to everything including sterio but dash while key is out of ignition and will not start when key is in ignition


Might be your ignition switch, or a fusable link from you battery. The switch makes more sense but i have no idea why it would screw up while you were driving. Usuall y that happens when you're starting it or shutting it off.

My 99 Windstar won't start. The battery and alternator are new. All connections are tight and clean. No corrosion. When the key is turned, the starter only makes a bump sound. Possibly like the solenoid is...


I think your right about the starter being bad.
When you turn the key, it will draw all the energy that it can from the battery. That's why your dash-lights go out.
When you take it in to be replaced, have them test out the old and the new starter.
I've gotten a defective starter before that was brand new.

Winstar wont start


THE THEFT ALARM WILL NOT ALARM THE VEHICLE TO CRANK OVER, ITS SOMETHING MECHANICAL JUST OCCURED AT THE TIME U INSTALLED THE RADIO, THE FACTORY SYSTEM IS BUILT INTO THE KEY FOR FORDS, TRY THE SPARE KEY,CHECK ALL FUSES UNDER THE HOOD AND UNDER THE DASH U MAY HAVE BROWN A FUSE AS WELL
