Answers :

Check to see if the Inertia switch is tripped. This switch has a Reset button and cuts the power to the fuel pump.

It can be located behind the front kick panels or behind a plastic cover in the rear Cargo area. Do a Web search for your Year and Model and title it, 1997 Windstar Inertia switch location. This switch is the most moved part of any safety switch on a vehicle.

If this part is okay, you should check for spark. You have Relays for both Spark and fuel.

If you still can not get results, you may have a trouble Code set in the system. A scanner would be needed to read this and because the van does not run, you would not notice a steady light on in the dash.

The Inertia switch I mentioned is a high probability solution for your problem. There are more expensive parts, like modules, but check the cheap stuff first.
