SOURCE: 2005 ford taurus. Remote entry wont work theft light keeps blinking when key is engaged

HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.

2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.

If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.

OK.. I hope this information work for you.

Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

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: 2000 ford windstar anti theft light flashing vehicle won't start

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

If you have key numbers on the door, you should enter the code, then immediately start the truck. If this does not work contact the dealer for a sequence to reset the alarm.

The security systems pass lock is disabling the vehicle. This usually happens when the ignition switch does not recognize the ignition key and/or a defective fob or the battery in the fob needs to be replaced. If you ignition key is too worn. This could possibly be your problem

When I'm driving my 2002 Ford Taurus will sometimes hesitate, the thief light on the dash will flash and if my cruise control is on it will go off; what is causing this problem?


Any body damage? Could it be that the hood latch or the theft switch is misadjusted, such that the normal vibrations of going down the road trick the theft system into thinking the hood is being opened?

My 2002 Ford Explorer won't start after a diagnostic test was performed. Mechanic is stating it's due to the anti-theft device system, but they have no idea how to fix it.


How is that possible,they should have a data
base, such as AllData or Mitchell, etc or
they can not work on any product & may as
well close their doors and go out of business

Your owners manual will explain the system as
far as using it

Any repair shop, should have 15 years experience
with an Explorer,there are a million out there

You need to move on to another shop,don't pay that
one anything

1988 ford taurus wagon chimes everytime i go 45+ mph and the speed light flashes... what's wrong?


You probably have the speed reminder set to 45mph. It chimes & flashes to let you know you are speeding. It will tell you how to adjust it in your owners manual. If you don't like it set it high eg: 100mph. then it won't happen.

THE CAR WILL BE RUNNING FINE,THEN IT WILL SPUTTER/****,THEFT LIGHTS FLASHES,RPM HAND DROPS RETURN TO NORMAL. ONLY WILL IT STOP RUNNING IF I SLOW TO MAKE A TURN OR STOP AT A TRAFFIC LIGHT.. IT MAY DO THIS 2...


elizabethsne, my 2002 taurus just started this today! Have you gotta closer to a fix or is it still doing that?

I'm seeing folks suggesting fuel filter, tune-up, air-filter, and if that doesn't work, possibly a fuel-pump going bad..... i will probably follow that logic to start with, but will keep searching.

thanks.

2001 Ford Taurus flashed theft light while driving and stalls. It does that intermittently. Starts fine.


IT WILL HAVE EITHER PASSIVE ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM (PATS) MODULE OR REMOTE ANTI-THEFT PERSONALITY (RAP) MODULE . REPLACE THE MODULE.

On start flashing theft light on 02 windstar


I just had this same thing happen with my Ford Taurus, and it turned out to be a bad key. The repair shop switched back and forth between two different keys we had with us 10 or 12 times, and it always started with the good key, never with the "bad" key. They said if the theft light is flashing quickly, that means the anti-theft system is engaging. If the anti-theft light just lights up, that is normal.
