I would look for a direct short in your wiring harness. It sounds to me like the wires are shorted together under your dash or maybe even out by your starter. Look for a location that contains the ignition wires and the starting circut.
you need to test the ignition wire on the solenoid the small one when you turn the key to start the car if the test light lights and the starter does not kick in yes its # 4 while holding the key in start position bang on the starter with a hammer it might start its a common problem with fords bad starter rebuilds and a lot of heat under the car but if you have no test light lit while turning the key then you have another problem like ignition switch or nuetral safety switch hope this helps
its something you did check the connections . hoping the battery you put in it is good, check and clean connections. also was the ignition key out of vehicle or in ignition could have blown ignition fuse are the head lights bright ?if so do they fade out when starting if so its connections if not its a fuse.
"Security" or Key-shaped light flashes on the dashboard ? Your car might be equipped with an immobilizer. (you can find more information about the immobilizer in your owner's manual). The immobilizer allows the engine to run only if the correct key is used. If your car has an immobilizer, you probably see a "Security" or Key-shaped light coming on on the dashboard every time you turn the ignition ON. If this light is flashing when you turn the ignition ON, it could mean that there is some problem with an immobilizer or the system does not recognize the key. If the immobilizer doesn't recognize the key, the engine wold not start at all, or would start and then die in few seconds. You can try a spare key, if it won't work, your dealer is the place to call. Sometimes, the key is just need to be reprogrammed.
remove the ground cable from the battery put the key in the ignition turn to on position on the bottom of the ignition housing there is a hole put a 10 penny nail in the hole and push in as you pull the out
it sounds like your anti theft may have gone out. your ignition reads the resistance of your key. if it matches the computer the car will turn on, if it doesnt the car will do what it is doing to you right now because it thinks you are using the wrong key. you may need to take it to someone with a scan tool and see if the computer can be reset.
the chip in the key has gone bad . this can happen real easy .....at the checkout counter in most stores there is a device under the counter that when you buy something the checker drags it across to deactavate a small chip so you can leave the store ....... this device can KILL THE CHIP IN YOUR KEY so keep keys clear of it ......this key must be replaced it cannot be reprogramed
