Without knowing more about your problem it's hard to say what the problem is. However the fact that the radio went off and the battery light is coming on would indicate an electrical failure.

Have you checked the alternator? Also, your alternator may be fine, but the leads that connect it to the battery can become corroded and cause a poor connection. I experienced this exact issue on a 2002 Chevy Grand Vitara, the lead connections on the back of the alternator just had to be cleaned.

Well test the alternator first. I should think you can do that with a simple voltmeter. It should read between 12 to 14 volts. Only answer I can supply, sorry.

Check ALL Power and Ground connections coming off the Battery to circuit anchor points. Ignition and Services fuses for a Power supply. If all proves ok, then go to the Main Ignition control Relay and check the condition of the Pins and Recepticles. That is where your apparent problem may eventually be. But travel the initial route first, looking and feeling for Loose or Dirty connecting points.

Take van to reputable Ford dealer and have them hook it up to computer and check for any codes.
The vehicle computer might have to be reset for the egr system.What they did was disconnect your battery for the quicki reset for vehicle, thats why your radio had reset.

Car dies intermittently


THIS ONE IS EASY. CHECK YOUR BATTERY TERMINALS AND CABLES THAT THEY ARE TIGHT. IF THEY ARE, YOUR BATTERY MAY NEED CHARGING OR YOUR ALTERNATOR IS NOT CHARGING YOUR SYSTEM THAT WELL. I WOULDNT DRIVE LONG DISTANCES UNLESS I HAD THAT CHECKED.
