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.
