Is it a stock van or a conversion van?

Club wagon chateau.
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

Ok. It is stock Ford vehicle. You will have to remove the inside lower trim panel behind the drivers seat on the drivers side. You may have to remove the second row seats to access the panel. The starting circuit goes through the RKE and if the fuse blows, the module is not working and the starting circuit is interrupted causing your problem. But check the wiring around the module and also check the wiring to the rear AC blower motor.

Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

Your van has anti theft which is the white one and remote keyless entry which is the black box. Unplug the white box and use a paper clip or a spare piece of wire and jump pins 12 and 24 which are the white/pink striped wire and leave the module unplugged. Start the engine with a new fuse and see if the fuse still blows.

Below is a picture of the connector and the wiring pins.

Ok module has two connectors found the one you are talking about but do I unplug both or just the one and will have to run to store for a fuse tomorrow but when I do this how long should it run for and if it does run does that mean the module is dead?
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

Unplug both. You are jumping the starter circuit with the wire which takes the antitheft module out of the circuit and eliminates it for the test. You can reply back when you are ready. I'll get an email when you do. The truck should stay running if the module is the problem. But if the fuse still blows, we will need to trace that wiring out to find the short.

Ok tested with jumper wire and new fuse
Tried starting and fuse blows right away
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Still need assistance jumped pins and fuse blows still
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

Sorry. Have been out of town for training for Ford.

Take the jumper wire out and disconnect the battery. Then use a multimeter with it set to ohms. Check both pins 12 and 24 for resistance to ground. Basically place one meter lead on ground and the other lead on either pin and se if you have continuity to ground.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Ok pin 24 has .603 M ohms and pin 12 is ol
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

Go underneath the vehicle on the drivers side and unplug the transmission range sensor. This is located on the drives side of the transmission where the shifter cable connects and then recheck pin #24 the same way. See if it goes OL.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Unplugged range sensor and both pins are ol now
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

Ok. Look at the range sensor connector and locate the RED/LIGHT BLUE wire and check it the same way. See if it reads OL. Make sure the battery is disconnected.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It does not read ol it shows about 28 ohms and battery is unhooked
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

Disconnect all the wires from the starter relay on the fender and recheck the wire. Make sure the wires are not touching ground when they are disconnected.

Yes, the starter solenoid/relay in the engine bay.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Would you have a pic of the location of that relay I can't seem to find a good pic of the fuse panel?
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

It is located on the drivers side of the engine bay next to the battery behind the drivers side headlight. See the diagrams below.
