Question about 2004 Ford F150
Tried to start my truck (2004, F150 Lariat, 5.4 Ltr) the alarm started going off and it will not start. Diconnected the battery and then reconnected. Alarm started going off when I reconnected the battery. ignition was off during this time. There is a small light at bottom of front console on drivers side that has started flashing.
Any help would be appreciated.
You got to press the lock or unlock button on the remote a couple times my truck did the same thing.

Sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm not factory most of these alarma are equipped with a starter interupt that will not vehicle start. when connecting the battery ist is normal for the alarm to sound some alarms may not sound if ignition is on while connecting battery, however this is not reccomended. after connecting battery and alarm sounds you should be able to turn it off with trasmitter, if you do not have one then you will need to put key in ignition turn it on and look under the dash for a valet switch or togle switch this may override the alarm and let car start if you cannot locate this you can alway locate the alarm box under dash and unplug it as last resort most alarm defaults will let the car start when this is done. hope this helps
