2001 ford windstar, van has been setting for a year, got my license back and went to start the van, no fuel pump noise, replaced fuel pump, started just fine drove it around for a day parked it now wo


Can you hear the fuel pump run, if not it may have failed again. I have seen new fuel pumps last a day or two and then fail. If your pump is working then replace the fuel filter. Anytime you open the fuel system, you should replace the filter.

Have a 1998 ford windstar if wont start and the security light flashes when trying to start it


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

1998 Ford Windstar Minivan: 1. I sometimes get an extended crank when trying to start engine after I've made a short trip. 2. My interior lights won't go out after I turn the engine off, so I...


YOU MAY HAVE A BAD DOOR AJAR SWITCH. HOWEVER, YO HAVE A TIMER THAT SHUTS OFF THE INTERIOR LIGHTS AFTER 300 MINUTES. IT'S CALLED A BATTERY SAVER FEATURE. TEST IT OUT.

THE EXTENDED CRANK MAY BE A CHECK VALVE IN THE FUEL PUMP IN THE TANK, ALLOWING PRESSURE TO DROP WHEN YOU TURN THE ENGINE OFF.
OR A BAD FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR ON THE ENGIEN FUEL RAIL.

TRY THIS TEST, TURN KEY TO "ON" POSITION, WAIT 5 SECONDS, SHUT OFF KEY FOR 30 SECONDS. TURN KEY ON, WAIT 5 SECONDS, THEN START ENGINE. IF IT STARTS RIGHT UP, YOU ARE LOSING FUEL PRESSURE WITH ENGINE OFF.

THIS BUILDS UP PRESSURE IF IT DROPPED DURING SHUT DOWN.
REPORT TEST RESULTS.

PLEAE RATE, THANKS

It could be 3 things: 1) Your battery needs to be replaced. If your battery is new or has already been replaced it could be 2) Your starter or 3) Your alternator.

You have a "park" interlock that could be failing.
Please Place the gear selector in "N" and see what happens.

Then, Connections at starter selenoid, failing battery terminal (or bad connector). A battery could have a broken plate inside that will not feed power to the starter - sometimes.

Check battery voltage.. If 12.5 or better - ok
Have a helper start the engine while you monitor the battery voltage - if, while in the start position, the voltage drops below 10 volts, replace the battery.

If the battey voltage holds at better than 12 volts, then You try to identify a bad positive cable connection between the battery and the starter as follows":
* Have your helper place the key in the start positition and HOLD IT THERE until the engine turns over.
*If, while in the start positition, engine does not turn over, then you should check for connections at the battery terminal---starter selenoid---selenoid output---starter connection. Again, all with the key in the start position.

If you wiggle/poke/prod a crank out of the starter - then you have identified the problem...

We just got a brand new battery and starter(i know the solenoid is on the starter) for our 98 windstar. 3 weeks later we got an oil&filter change,as well as fuel filter&fuel injection cleaning, and...


Does it just crank and crank,or does it barely try to start.Check fuel pump relay under hood or for a fuse..Or turn the ignition to the run position but dont start it and have someone listen by fuel tank for the fuel pump to make the humming noise.Most of the items you have listed in the post more than likely would not make the car just suddenly not run unless fuel pump relay is bad..
