Look in the Engine bay fuse box at Fuse #12 this should be for the power windows. If this checks out OK, it could be a fault with a bad ground wire in driver's side door harness. You should be able to pry the runbber boot from the drivers door, and check the larger Black wire that goes through it. These have been known to break after a few years use. If it is the cable, cut neatly, strip the ends anu use a crimp splice. Hope this is a quick and easy fix for you. If it helps you solve the problem, Please take a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.

You need to readjust the switch on your trunk door, or replace. To check it locate it, tape it down with duct tape and see if the light goes off. If not it's bad. If it does it means it isn't sticking out far enough to be turned off when the trunk is closed. The adjusment should be fairly obvious. If not you can simply unplug it which has the same result as turning it off.

i went thru a considerable amount of relays in my windstar. I would suggest stopping by a junk/recycling/wrecking yard and picking up a handfull of relays for the windstar/freestar. look under the dash in the fuse panel for the relays and replace any in the circuits affected. if you are in luck the relay circuits will be shown on the cover of the fuse panel.
if the problem is the sliding door... there are a row of circular copper contact points on the door jam as it slides shut as well as "fingers" on the door that make contact with them when you close the door. Use an eraser or similar to make sure the contacts are clean.
Do not overlook the relays in the engine compartment near the battery as a cause for some of the issues you are having.
as a side note... i dropped into my local ford dealer and talked nicely to the parts guy.... he gave me a print out of all the fuses/relays and their locations which was a huge help. give that a try.
let me know how you made out.... and take a moment if this was a successful fix to rate this solution.. thanks
P.S. i was able to manage almost 400,000 kms from my windstar before i sold it. and the only issue it had then was that it would not stay running (a fairly easy fix)

check for any recalls on that issue with the manufacturer, cold condensation may worked its way inside the electronics and ruined them.

you should check the connection to the main board and the connections to the motor for the wipers. these sometimes become gunked up, so when you pull them apart to check them clean them with sand paper or something that can scrub them like a green scratch pad
