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

Do you mean they dim when you push on the gas? If yes then try having the alternator and/or battery checked. Normally the battery should be between 13 and 14.5 volts when running.
