2000 windstar with a 3.8 motor cranks slow then stops and no start .Acts like a dead battery battery is good what can it be?

Bad connection or corroded cables, possibly a bad starter. Sounds like something is drawing more amps than the battery is capable of supplying.

Try checking the starter selenoid. Sounds like something is resetting when there is no power in the system but will not reset when there is power.

I have a 2007 PT Cruiser and it just started acting yesterday. It starts but if I run to the store (a few mils away) and try and restart after about 10-15 minutes it doesn't want to start right away,

It looks like battery. Check the connections on the battery terminals and see if it is corroded. Clean it with water and an old toothbrush. If it is not loose and clean, then your battery is probably going to need replacing if it is 3 to 5 years old. Normally batteries start acting up at that age, and also when the weather starts to cool down. Bring it to a a tire shop, auto parts store or mechanic and have it checked. It should be free to get checked.

Usually a sign of something draining the battery.
The machine test probably showed the battery could hold a charge and the alternator was charging the battery.
You may need to have someone check for a power drain.
When the key switch is off, there may be a weak short to ground or a relay or component that is using power.

Car wont start, acts like battery is dead. battery shows full charge. full lights, buzzers, etc. put it on charger-didnt start...cleaned cable connections-didnt start...tried to jump with truck-didnt...

Check the battery +12v power connection to the starter is in good order,
Check the ground connection between the battery negative and the engine/starter motor is robust and intact.
If no problem with above, replace the starter motor.

Any cracks or water damage that may have gotten into the remotes? did you check the batteries in the remote? try fresh batteries, also check your fuses. if that doesnt work, probably need to have it reprogrammed.

1999 Chevy 1500 LS Battery comes on when humid

Make sure all your battery connections are clean. take them off the battery and clean them and the posts on the battery .. also check the ground from the battery to the block and make sure its tight .. also check to see if the cable is tight on the starter when the engine is cold.. then check the back of the alternator to see if that positive line is tight on the alternator .. holler if you need more Jerry
