Your problem is probably in the wiper transmission itself. There is a switch that tells what position to stop feeding power to the motor. But if that switch isn't working, the rest of the system does not know what to do, nor exactly when! However, if you have a good concept of timing, what you COULD do, is simply turn the wiper switch off the instant they are at the "lowest point" in their sweep cycle ... at a cost of NOTHING!

The door lock is not working. Operate the remote keypad, the driver's armrest door lock switch, and the overhead switch until you hear the latch work, then open the door. If this approach fails, 10A FUSE 11 in the central junction box may be open or the rear electronic module may have failed. Once you have the door open, apply WD-40 to the mechanical parts of the latch to prevent future problems.

Did you check the oil level? After making sure that oil and water are at proper levels, and BATTERY is fully charged, start it again while checking the fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Also check and make sure vacuum line to fuel pressure regulator is good and hooked up.
If it doesn't start,try it with the MAF unhooked. Sometimes a bad MAF sensor will keep them from starting.
Outside chance of a bad alternator too. don-ohio

If you went to a Ford Dealer and they could not establish communication with the onboard computer there is definitely something wrong electronically. All the erratic electronic components' behavior gives me a sense the entire electrical system has some short (or multiple shorts perhaps). You might want to go and replace the wiring harness, rather than troubleshooting where one short, or multiple shorts might be located. Oh, and just thinking out loud here ... By chance, did you buy the Windstar secondhand and the origin was a flood-prone area? The symptoms you mention lead me to believe your vehicle may have been caught in a flood or submerged in water which develops erratic electronic behavior down the road such as you're complaining about.

a loud knocking noise indicates major engine failure
the mechanic has a lack of ability so get quotes from accredited service center who have experience on your make of vehicle
many mechanics do not understand that on many vehicles it is a relative simple matter to remove the engine /transmission assembly as a unit to work on them rather than to work in vehicle

This could be hard to diagnose for someone that doesn't know about electronically controlled automotive systems . There are two electronic control modules involved ! (FEM) front electronic control module and the (REM) rear electronic control module . The first step would be to hook up a scan tool to look at input data to the control modules. Corrupt signals to the module ! B+ power an ground circuits problems . The wiring inside the harness from the body to driver door , opening an closing of the door breaks the wires over time . Load testing the circuit will find the problem.
