I have a couple of quick questions about my '01 Windstar. First,
sometimes I can't unlock it using the fob. Either fob, and the
batteries check out ok. Once I unlock it using the key and turn the
alarm off, it works fine. Its happened at several different
locations, so I don't think it's a matter of interference.
Second, how much fuel is left when the fuel warning light comes on?
Recently while traveling it came on and due to the lack of gas
stations I had to drive nearly 20 miles at interstate speeds before I
could find a gas station. How close was I to running out? The manual
just says a small reserve. To me a small reserve could be any thing
from vapors to a couple of gallons.
My Taurus light comes on at 2 gallons left, or 50-60 miles to go. The
16 gallon tank also takes 20.2 gallons from completely empty, giving me
about 480-525 miles range around town, ~ 590 miles highway.
