The security system is locked, either someone tried to break into car or its malfunctioning which very common on these systems. there is a reset switch under the dashboard on the passenger side.

The Last time I had that problem with my Ranger, it was the fuel auto shut off valve.

Mine was located under the dash on the right side close to the wheel well.

It's just a small red button, you push it and your fuel will be restored.

BUT!!!!

It could be your fuel pump, turn the car on as if you had started it and crawl under the truck in the back and hit the bottom of the fuel tank where there is a bump, you should hear it start pumping.

DON'T HIT IT TOO HARD!

If the pump is going bad, this may make it work long enough to get it to the repair shop with out a tow bill.

Mine cost $623.00 for the repair.

Hope this helps!

2002 Pontiac Firebird acts like it ran out of gas and now won't even start. Could it be fuel pump or something else. Service engine soon light also comes on occasionally due to emmisions sensor fr


with the key on engine off listen to fuel pump,if you can not hear the pump winning ,the pump is bad

if you can hear it,it might be working but create enough pressure
you can rent a fuel pressure gauge from auto store and check the fuel pressure

Cold morning car wont start


If the anti-theft light is flashing, turn the key to the On position and leave it there until the light stops flashing. Turn the key off, then try to start the car. The Anti-Theft system can get tripped for no reason and cause this exact problem.

2005 rendezvous. Changed serpenntine belt and replaced leaking front seal when took it down off the jacks it will not start. Turns over but acts like fuel has been shut off. Is this an anti theft or fuel...


Sounds like maybe you knocked the Crank Sensor loose, or possibly the injector plug harness up top near the alternator. Check all of your wiring really good in the vacinity that you were working in and around. If your anti theft light isnt flashing you in the face with the key on and engine off it isnt a fuel or theft issue. The anti theft system disables the fuel to the injectors, if you raised the car too high it can trigger the anti theft and it must be reset, but unlikely. Check all of your connections.

2000 ford explorer car starts while theft light flashing runs very rough starving for gas shuts off . changed the fuel already.


Theft light has something to do with the anti theft security system. I know that on GM vehicles, when the TRANSPONDER in the key does not give the correct signal or when the ignition reads the signal wrong, the computer will shut off the injectors or fuel pump. Sounds like this is your problem. THEFT light is an immobilizing problem. Thats why the truck wont run.
