Having problems with your 2000 Ford Windstar ?
Why the battery ligh is on - 2000 Ford Windstar
The battery light usually comes on when theres a charging problem, use a multimeter and attach it to your battery and with your car running make sure it has between 13-14 volts on the charging side, if the output of the alternator is below this you probably have a weak alternator and thats why the battery light is coming on, if the alternator isnt charging dont drive your vehical because when the engine exhausts all the charge from the battery the engine will die and you will be on the side of the road so make sure your charging system is working properly, if it is you will have to do further diagnosing as to why the light is on....
