Question about 1999 Ford Windstar
Your vehicle electrical system (anything that needs power) runs on the charging system (altenator). The only thing the battery does is start the vehicle unless your charging system is not working then it will use the battery until all the power is gone in it and then you will have nothing, like the symtems you wrote about. It sounds like a classic case of a bad alternator. I would start by charging up your battery and see if it will start then, I'm guessing it will. If it does start check your charging system. Most of your local auto part stores will do this for free for you. To my memory (not perfect though) there isn't a fuse for the altenator so that's most likely what is bad. That's where I would start and that's what i do for a living. I hope this helps you and good luck.
