hello. i am new to this so please excuse me.. i have a 99 ford windstar that will click multiple times but will not start. we have replaced several things on the van, but the other the car would only click and wouldn't start.. i finally got it today to click multiple times.. (don't ask me how).. i am thinking i am getting a bad connection on my battery or the starter is bad.. not real sure..
the starter cable going from the starter to the battery had pulled off of the starter which is what made it not start before hand.. we fixed that but yet it still won't start

I have a 2003 Windstar that has had the same problem...we changed the "crankshaft sensor" and it continued, then changed the "camshaft sensor" and it continued, then changed the "camshaft synchronizer". It has run 7 days without a problem...knock on wood !! good luck Jay

Check your relay fuse. My van did that i could kick start it by sticking a screwdriver on the starter which I dont recomend if you dont know how. The relay fuse had blown.

I have a 96 Ford Windstar, only 5800 miles and it stalls all the time when I remove my foot from the gas. Took it to Ford Dealership and they replaced idle air control valve and performed fuel induction cleaning, it did no good, they said they had no idea why it was doing this and to come get it, they refunded the 300 plus dollars they charged but I still can't drive it. Does anyone have any ideas or what else to try, if FORD Doesnt know, who the heck does???? HELP PLEASE

No, It gradually deteriorated tot he point where sometimes I can get it to run but it acts like it is running on two cylinders. I think it is the control mounted under the battery holder since it is exposed to splashing from the front left tire. I say it was because I have given up on it and it is sitting in my driveway waiting to junked out or donated.
