Ok the brake problem has not really been resolved but now my Aerostar has
another problem.. If I had my way I'd sell the pile of junk but my husband seems
to want to suffer with this van til the bitter end.
1990 Aerostar 167,000 miles AWD (sort a) ABS (sort a) and all the other perks
except for the Eddie Baur package.
We replaced the alternator a few months ago.
Now when my husband drives it (I won't drive it anywhere) if he turns on the
headlights the van begins to lose all electric power. It started beeping so we
pulled over and it would not start at all and sounded like it had a dead battery
so I'm thinking alternator. BUT the battery tests as fully charged according to
the state trooper who gave us a jump start. After the jump start the van was
Skip ahead to this morning husband drives the pile of junk home and makes the
mistake of turning the headlights on and the beeping starts again so he turns
the head lights off and all is well UNTILL he turns the heater on (??) then the
beeping starts again. He managed to drive it home though because he was only a
block away when he decided to turn the heater on. So now it is sitting in front
of the house dead as a doornail.. Oh now he says it starts again.. so I was
unstartable when he first got home but now it starts again.
So what is wrong with his pile of junk now?
