2000 Ford Windstar 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 167000 miles
I bought a used 2000 windstar with a bad instrument cluster. I bought a used cluster and had my mechanic intall it. Prior to his working on it I disconnected the battery(as the books recommended). After installation the car won't start and the THEFT light blinks. Even after sitting overnight the light still blinks and car will not start. Question: does the car need to be transported to a dealer? I have another mechanic with several scanners but my internet reading tells me that Ford dealers may have the only scanners that will work here. To make things worse the car came with only one key. Thanks for your advise. D. T.
