I had a similar problem in my 1998 windstar including emergency entry alarm going off problems after a battery ran extra low on me and I recharged the battery. Ididn't have the remote with me and I was only able to cure it after going through the ignition reset routine the problem corrected itself. There may also be a fuseable link that has gone bad or an open (broken wire) in the wireing harness. I've seen both conditions cause the same to happen in other types of vehicles. Also have you checked the fuses beyond just a visual inspection. art
possible electric system short
Start small. Check your fuses.
if all other lights are working, i would start with the reverse light switch.this is usually located on the side of the transmission
battery is low or almost dead
Start with new fuses...
Either the throtle cable is hanging or the idle control solonoid is not working
Turn signals not working nor back up lights. However the head lights are working and rear lights are also working
i think the Jamaicans where so board just working so they developed another way of working like dancing to the music and working at the same time
Start with checking the fuses.
Start 2001 winstar with no key
First of all is the lights working in the car? (over head lights or any kind of lights) If your not getting anything at all (no lights) then you should check the battery. If the lights are working then I would check your starter. Most of the time if you take the battery somewhere to get checked they will do it for free. So I would start there. Did you try to get a jump to see if that would start it? Hope this helped some.
If the lights are not working after using the remote start on a 2003 F-250, then something is wrong with the way it was wired when the remote start was installed. The remote start has wires to hook up to the lights so that a person knows the vehicle started. Perhaps this step was skipped in installation.
Most liley cause is an ignition off drow on the battery. Something is staying on when you shut the van off. Check dome lights, glove box lights, etc.
you have a bulb out. go buy a new one and they will start working
this sounds like a fuse or 2. that's where i would start.
It's common on most Ford's for the light switch to burn out on most models. The newer vehicles have been fixed but that's where you could start.
Our 1999 Ford Windstar Van starts fine but when we shut it off it will not start back up til it has sit for 30 minutes! HELP
2002windstar wont start with remote with out key in ignition
Check the fuses to start with. Make sure that the dimmer switch is on high and working. If these are ok, then check for bad wiring connections to the dash lights.
Just had the same problem with my 03 Windstar, problem went on for about 3months. Finally replaced the alternator and have not had a problem since.
Maybe start with dimmer switch, that's what I did on mine.
Check to see if stop lights are working. Shift interlock and stop lights are on (perhaps blown fuse) the same circuit. If stop lights are not working, try turning the key to the 1st position (unlock) and try to shift to neutral to start car and then you can move shift lever.
If all the running lights (front & back) are not working I'd start by checking the fuses then onto the headlight switch
If the headlights will come on bright it's probably the starter. If the lights are dim it may be the battery. If you try jumper cables and it won't start it's probably the starter.
