#192 of 355 Electrical problems
Apr 28, 2010 (3:33 pm)
Help!! I have a 2003 ford windstar luxury edition with every electrical gadget you can think of. There seems to be too much amps coming in to the wiring system and it blows up some things. Example: when we put the ignition on and try to put headlights on or on AUTO, lights flash everywhere (radio too). We have a pop-up tent to hitch at the back but the tailgate lights don't work. We have been to the dealer, he put in 2-3 hours of work but couldn't find the problem.
HELP PLEASE!! Thanks

#195 of 355 98 Windstar window dilemma
Jun 29, 2010 (8:03 pm)
My passenger window will not work. I removed the door panel and removed the motor, hit the switch and the motor works fine. Replaced the motor and window worked fine for 1 day. Removed door panel again and was mad so I hit the end of the motor with screw driver and it worked for a little while and quit again. The motor seems fine, what could be the problem?
#197 of 355 2001 Windstar electrical Craziness
Jul 17, 2010 (10:23 am)
Ok so last night I take the family to see a movie. We come out and the battery is dead. I get a jump, get the van home, and replace the battery today. As soon as I connect the battery every single light on the van lights up. I mean every warning light, headlight, taillight, dome light everything and that is with no key in the ignition let alone turned on. Now I know why my battery went dead. Of course it is Saturday and no mechanic is working. Anybody have any thoughts?
justinswyfe do you know what the name of that computer in the back of the van is? If I knew what it was called I could look for the part better. Maybe that is my problem too.
#199 of 355 Instrument cluster goes crazy
Aug 16, 2010 (10:08 am)
My 2003 Windstar has an intermittent instrument cluster problem. Intermittently, when the engine is started, the tach, speedometer, temp, and fuel gauge needles go crazy, jumping up and down. This typically lasts for 10 - 15 seconds. Afterwards, everything works just fine. I have pulled the instrument cluster assy and checked the connectors and contacts for any indication of corrosion or other issues, but found nothing. Getting ready to replace cluster assembly if no other solution is found.
