Question about 1999 Ford Ranger SuperCab
Wasn't having any problems with my truck until it was towed. Now I can't get it to start. Lights come on but doesn't even crank. Is there something with the antitheft ignition that I need to do to get the truck to start??? I know the key has an antitheft chip in it but wouldn't think this would cause this kind of problem since I'm using the original key.
I had a 93 ranger, same thing happend to me. Ended up it was the little switch on the cluch pedal. when they pushed the clutch in their foot kicked it off. Its just a clip on spring on the arm of the pedal.

I am not allowed to provide instructions to bypass an antitheft system, I am sorry.
But I can tell you that it ist not simple to be done,I think it´s even impossible to override the system of your car. The reason is that the immobilizer is included in the engine control module, so there is no way to bypass the system.
The easiest -and cheapest- way is to order a new key or tow the car to the next Ford Branch to program the existing key.

most commonly diagnosed component is the shifter and/or shifter solenoid on your Impala.
