Re: 2001 ford windstar electric prob!!

If the brake lights don't work, you won't be able to take it out of park. If you turn the key to run, then back toward off one notch, you'll be able to put it in neutral and start it, Then you can use the gears except for park or it will stay in park. Be cautious driving though because the brake lights aren't working. Check fuse #11 inside and the brake light switch and see if there's power to the light green/red wire on the brake light switch and red/light green with pedal pushed. Post back what you find.

Did you check for power with the key on? You can also try switching the relays in the inside panel. These systems are pretty complicated.

Re: 2001 ford windstar electric prob!!

How about the fuses under the hood? Which ones don't have power with the key on?

Re: 2001 ford windstar electric prob!!

Tell us what doesn't work on the van. You only mentioned a few things and the fuses that you said have no power run a lot of other things. Radio etc.
