what would make a 2000 ford windstar die out at stop lights and you have to put your foot on the brake and gas at the same time to keep it running and it sputters and jerks.
First check to see if you have brake lights, if no brake lights you have a bad shift interlock switch,it is a small black box located behind your brake pedal.It's about $45.00 from the dealership. I keep a spare in my van.
In a 2000 Ford Windstar : ( DOT 3 brake fluid meeting Ford specification ESA-M6C25-A ) according to the Owner Guide

Check the brake light switch on the brake pedal

How do I repair my third row seats in my 2000 windstar that will not stay up properly.
check the brake pedal, there is a switch on the back of the pedal that depressed when the brake is depressed that turns the lights on, when this is loose it keeps the lights on.
Often these are accessed thru the trunk; have you tried that?
I had the same issue on my 2000 Windstar, until one day I noticed my brake lights stayed on after I left the car. Turns out the brake lights left on all day drained the battery. To fix this I went under the dash and removed the cotter pin that holds the brake peddle on, then I unplugged the brake switch and pulled it out. Inside the box is a simple on-off contact switch that is activated when you press down on the brakes. Bending the copper contact arm up a little fixes the issue. Just put everything back together and check that your brake lights come on when you step on the brake! I hope this is your issue, other wise you have another short somewhere. Trevor trevor is right about the brake lights being a cause for the problem. But, it could also be a 12 volt negative short that is draining the battery. that is what happened to a friends car. it would drainb the battery over night
check the brake fluid level. try filling to top. Get it fixed !
If you mean the brake lights are stuck on, then check the stoplight switch located on the top of the brake pedal.
Start with the vehicle speed sensor the feeds the speedometer and odometer.Also look at the Brake/Speedometer problem associated with the Windstar recall for a leaking brake pressure switch
its gotta be a ford a problem with the center brake light circuit causes the lights to go out i believe it is a diode
The cornering lights are tied in with the turn signals - they'll come on automatically IF the turn signal is used.
fuse, bulbs, switch on brake pedal.
Sounds like you may have a defective relay, which is in the fuse box. It is worth checking out.
Heat cut the windshield out, just make sure not to damage the brake lights, and the windshield wiper, fit the new glass to the back, and weld it on the inside after removing the fabrication, put the fabrication back on, make sure the brake lights and windshield wiper work, and if they do, you're good, if they don't, visit an inspection shop, they'll hook ya up.
The left brake light works the right brake light doesn't and the bulbs is good
Bad fuse or bad brake light switch.
replace the lamp socket they short in a strange way, it happened to me 3x. the socket carbonized from bulb heat
