Considering this is a 1996 model, you can have either the OBD1 or OBD2 system. Most manufactures switched this year. If it is OBD1 then disconnect the battery for 5 min and it should reset. If it is OBD2 it can only be reset with a scan tool. Some OBD1 systems were also reset with a key combination. Call your local Ford dealer and they will inform you of which you have and the procedure.

The 1999 Ford Windstar does not have a separate computer for the fuel system. The vehicle computer contains all of the functions for the fuel system. The vehicle system computer is located behind the kick plate.

The only way to completely reset the anti theft system on a 1999 Ford Windstar is to unhook the battery for 45 minutes. Once you hook the battery back up, the anti theft will be reset and any warning lights will be off.

There is no reset for the charging light. If it is on, then something is wrong. Drive the car to your local auto parts store and have the system checked.

As this should be an OBD1 system, removing the fuse or the positive battery cable for 10 minutes should reset the computer.

You can reset the computer on a 95 Ford Taurus by connecting an OBDII reader to the vehicle. It can then reset all codes within the computer.

There is no timing belt on the Windstar engine - it is equipped with a timing chain, which requires no routine maintenance. Also, engine timing is controlled by the engine / powertrain computer module. No user intervention required (or even possible).
