Need Help 99 Windstar Won't Start

Please help me out. I have 99 ford windstar. I have not had it long and it has been a problem from the start. First the tranny was slipping so i took it in for an est.. $2000.00 later it still was not fixed and before I could take it back in for them to fix it. Now it will not start.

This is my first problem I need fixed...all the lights and dash lights ,instrument cluster etc..worked but when you turn the key nothing would happen. The only thing you could hear is one of the relay click once. ( I am guessing that that would be the starter relay??? I don't know . I checked all the fuses that i could test and they were fine. I don't know how to check the big black relays. I even bought a new battery $60.00. I had a friend turn the key and I moved the wires around at the battery and all the way to the starter. then with the key in the on postion i jumped the solinoid and the van would crank but not stay running.

Does anyone have some insite on what is the problem. I thought maybe the netrual safety switch so I tried starting it in all transmission linkage spots P RND321.

When you jumped across the solenoid, did you have the ign. key turned to the run position? If not, it won't start, but it will still crank. Definately make sure all your connection are clean and tight. From battery to solenoid to starter.

Can't say for positive on the Windstar, but on my '92 ranger and '85 F150, they are on the fender. You said in your first post that you jumped the solenoid, so, that is the one you need to change.

that is what I thought but the rude guy at Auto Zone acted like I was dumb. He said it was on the fire wall. But mine looked like the kind on an older chevy starter????
