Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Ford Windstar 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120.00 miles
Ok I have a 2000 Ford WIndstar. First off, the A/C blows just air (not hot, sometimes cool) in the front vents only. Back works FINE! Same with Heater! Why?
Power Window on the Drivers Side WILL NOT ROLL DOWN all of a sudden. I hear a ticking noise when I hit the switch to roll the window down- by the fuse box under the dash but I dont know what that means.
Because of these 2 problems, I decided to start with checking fuses! I checked ALL fuses under the dash..... I found 1 blown - It was 17 - Cigar Lighter ect.....
That explains why the damn cigarette lighter hasnt been working, lol! So I removed that blown fuse. I planned to go get one this AM
Fuse #9 was not even there and this is for the "Cluster, PATS Transciever, Powertrain Control Module Relay" whatever that is. So I noted it down so I would pick one up too!
I then became curious as to the Relay's. I pulled them out - 1 by 1 - and inspected them, only to realize that you cannot tell by looking at them if they are in working order. So I replaced them back IN THE EXACT SPOT and made sure they were secure.
Fuse #18 was missing when I checked this the other day. I went to autozone and bought a replacement 10a fuse. I thought it was weird because it looked different than the others. Same color but more roundish - not SQUARE like all the others. This fuse is repsonsible for the "LH Quater WIndow Motor, RH Quarter Window Motor, RH Window Switch, Backlighting, Master Control Switch (LH) Backlighting, Radio".I thought, hmmmm maybe that is why the window won't roll down.
So being the idiot that I am, I thought..... I will take the new weird looking 10a Fuse #18 (power windows) out and switch it with another fuse - I chose #19 "Starter Interrupt Delay" to see if the fuse was any good because I have no tools to check it.
Tried to start the can to see if it made any difference and IT WONT START ALL OF A SUDDEN. I freaked out and changed the fuses back to their original setting. Still the Van wont start. Then my husband said the head lights wouldn't go off because somehow the ANTI-THEFT was activated. So he disconnected the battery and they went off. But the van still wont start.
I have the owners manual diagram - but my husband HATES it and says he cannot understand it. I need another one. I got one from a Ford Dealership once but I can't find it. Does anyone know where I can get one online FOR FREE?
Help with Power WINDOW front Drivers Side not rolling down, FRONT A/C not cooling and heat not heating, Van won't Start...........
