2004 Ford Freestar Electrical Problem

Asked by Jan 24, 2016 at 08:32 PM about the 2004 Ford Freestar SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

. I have a 2004 Ford Free Star and something weird has been happening.  
Once in while when I am on the road I hear click sound sound (not clicking)
one click sound and my radio goes dead, no time, no display no music
nothing, and then the brake and ABS light turn on and sometimes the light
(mileage display) goes away - after maybe 10 to 15 seconds there is a
nother click and everything goes back to normal. When it happens I lose no
power from the car, it keeps driving like normal  if nothing happened.
That might occur about 4 - 5 times a day.  What the heck do think it is?  I
appreciate your help.

Do you ever wonder how many times Ford changed the nameplates of their mini-vans?? It started with the Windstar, followed by the Aerostar, then came the Freestar, and now the Ford Transit. Back to your problem, could be an electronic problem, but, honestly, these cars are known problem vehicles. Unless you absolutely love this car, I would replace it before sinking a lot of money into this vehicle. See link below, NOT a ringing endorsement. http://www.carcomplaints.com/Ford/Freestar/2004 PS-- the reason they changed the nameplates so often is these vehicles developed such a horrible reputation, they had to!!
