Hello and good day to you:
Do you have a Owners Manual for your Windstar? If not please check this link: https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenan...ls/default.asp
And this Link Car Door Lock Questions and Answers
Enter your Year, Make, Model....you then will get a PDF file...go to page 109, and Check the Reprogramming of the Key Fob. And Page 110.
I have the same Problem on my 1999 Escort SE...with the one back door. In the door there is a Small Servo that engages the lever to go up and down...some times these go bad....especially in the Colder Areas of the Country....It happens when the doors are very cold, and you try to open it. They then just stress, and give out. you have a shorted door lock actuator, simply replace the lock that is not working with a new unit.
So if the Reprogramming does not do the trick,,,then you will need to replace those Servos.
Good luck and Good Repairing.
