Question about 2000 Ford Expedition

Anti theft device for 97 ford expedition

My car wont start and my anti theft light blinks fast when I turn the ignition. How can I reset it? My 2000 ford expedition died on me while going down the road. We found that the wires behind the drivers side tire had been cut. We fixed them and it wouldn't start so we tried having the theft system reset and it still won't start. The dealer said they could diagnose it for $82 an hour. If someone could help me out of having to pay that I would greatly appreciate it.

    My 2000 ford expedition will not start, the anti-theft system continues to blink fast. I took it to the dealer and was told I would be charged $68 per hour for them to take the motor apart. I am assuming they know exactly what the problem is, why would they tell me they need to take the motor apart. I took it to an auto mechanic and was told it was the security feature. How can I get this reset?

2003 f150 turns over but wont crank, also theft light blinking fast


Usually means the sensor in the lock cylinder is not reading the code in the key.
If the pass key system does not get the right signal from the key the truck will not start.
You might try taking the key off your ring - put it in the lock and turn the switch on - but don't crank it for at least a minute.
There are procedures to reset the anti-theft online - - if you do a search for resetting anti-theft F150 you can read them.

My theft light is flashing but my 1997 expedition wont start.The vehicle turns over but just don't start.


ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM Passive anti-theft system
Your ignition key has a unique imbedded transponder which engages engine electronics and allows the vehicle to be started. Without the use of your special ignition key, the vehicle will not start.

During each vehicle start, the coded key is read by the anti-theft system. If the key’s ID code matches the code in the anti-theft system, the vehicle is enabled to start.

Anti-theft system
Briefly illuminates when the ignition is turned to the ON position to verify that the passive anti-theft system is operating properly.

Also, its possisble that tou have actovated the fuel pump switch.

CHeck it.

If you are reseting a factory alarm...lock and unlock the drivers door with the key. If you don't know the code look under the dash driver side in left corner there should be a black cover with a sticker with a code on it 6 numbers that is the factory code.
