SOURCE: 2001 ford expedition spark plug location

That's because they are hidden quite well. If you look at the engine, you'll see yellow plastic prongs (?) that look like spark plugs, but hook up to the silver tubing.  That's the fuel injectors.  BUT, right behind the yellow plugs, are black ones.  The black one is the connector to the spark plug.  The plug itself sits about 4 inches down into the block of the engine.  They are a real pain, and from what I can tell, you only have decent access to the first 2-4 of them, then they get too far back and start going under the dash (you'll see what I mean when you get there).

SOURCE: 2001 ford focus anti theft

it would be impossible to disable the security feature without a programmer, the entire idea of the system is that no one without the proper key can start the vehicle, there is a program called "sniper" that can disable PATS (the security system in your car, Passive Anti Theft System) but it is costly, another idea to try is to call local lock smiths in your area, it is possible that one may have your key in stock even though the dealer does not,

SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus wont start and anti-theft light is blinking

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

SOURCE: How do you change upper and lower ball joints on 2001 Ford Expedition?

i am not going to lie to you on this. if you do not have a very good mechanical back ground you should not attemp this procedure your self because it could result in serious injury. it should be brought to a shop because they do have the right tools to do this. alot of the time ball joints are pressed in under extream amounts of pressure

SOURCE: no key for 2001 ford expedition

you can't start the vehicle without taking it in and having a new key programmed to it- you can have a key made- it will unlock it and turn in the ign. but will not start without programming- your ford dealer may be able to get the key code for the vehicle but most likely you'll also have to purchase a new ign. cylinder and have 2 keys made because it takes 2 keys to program after an erase. hope this helps, good luck

How to reset Anti-theft system on 2001 Ford expedition? The theft light will blink rapidly and the engine will not start but once the theft light goes out it will start


Security on Fords are a pain. First code readers can't/won't help you. It takes a scanner to read security codes. Yours seems intermittent. First, while it is acting OK, if you don't have an extra key for it, go get it and have it programmed it in. If this seems to take care of your problem, go get another and have it programmed. Transponders/keys do die. Thing with the keys, Ford requires 2 keys to reset the security, if your one key is dead. Now you have to have it towed, and purchase 2 new keys from Ford. Ford keys are cheap, But from Ford, your looking at close to $300 for 2 of them.. Scanners will give codes to point you in a direction. Some shops will read codes for free, Just ask them to read the security codes. Active and history codes are what you need to know. You would like to see no valid key/transponder codes. This tells you that it is a bad key, bad receiver or a bad wire close to the receiver. Receivers don't need programmed. It wraps around the ignition lock cylinder. $50 and an hour later, your back on the road.

When i changed ignition on 2001 ford explorer I ended up having to replace steering column now it wont turn over & the anti theft light flashes & wont stop. what can be done to get car started?


At least you know the anti theft system is working. Jokes aside, I would think that the electronic security system is not recognising the new lock and steering column. You could try leaving the battery completely disconnected for at least 2 or 3 hours to see if the system resets. Reconnect the battery and then try again with the new key. You will have to put the security code back into your radio as well. If this doesn't work, it may need to go to a Dealer to reprogram your electronic system.

Battery was dead and now the centre dash board and gear selector lights do no come on at night, I also have the anti theft light flashing which it never used to do.


Does this vehicle start? I had this happen in a 2001 Ford Freestyle. The battery was defective / deader than dead. AAA came out to jump it but nothing worked except the anti theft light that flashed, double speed if you turned it to crank, (Which it wouldn't) I had it towed to Walmart to replace the nearly new battery but it still wouldn't start. I called AAA back to tow it to the Ford dealer where I had to pay $65.00 to get the anti theft key/s and computer reset. I said "key/s" because they didn't tell me that I needed my wife's key because you can't just program ONE key. So either I pay a taxi for a 24 mile round trip or I pay an extra $20.00 for a new anti theft key. After that. I had 3 keys to that van. To make a long story short, Have BOTH keys with you when you take it to be reprogrammed.

2000 ford expedition wont start,security light in dash keeps flashing when trying to start,speedometer and gauges move when trying to start,,,fuel pump was replaced last year,,please help.thanks.


Your vehicle is equipped with a passive theft deterrent system that utilizes a "pill" embedded in your key along with a receiver contained in the steering column. If the system doesn't recognize your key, the vehicle will crank but not start and the theft light will flash rapidly. If you have another key, try it. Otherwise, you're in for a trip to the dealer where they can either reset the system or troubleshoot it further.

Good luck.

Theft light blinks fast engine turn over but wont start how can we turn the theft light off


You can't will have to be repaired, check and see if the chip on top of the key did not fall out, if not more then likely chip is damage, most mobile lock smith have the computer to reprogram a new chip to your theft system, being you have the key won't be that much, between $60.00 - $100.00.

I replaced ignition switch on my 2001 ford explorer and now my car won't start what steps do i take in replacing the ignition


if you are sure all wires are installed correctly check fuses... also you would have to match the ignition key start pellet to the anti theft computer. your old key might not be seen as the correct key by the system.
