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: I have a 1998 ford mustang 5 speed. the theft

The theft light blinking fast because there is a problem with the PATS ,(passive antitheft system). You either have a bad chip in one of your keys,PATS transceiver on ignition cylinder or computer. If it is a key you would have to have them programmed into system which requires you to have 2 keys and certain diagnostic equipment to program them into sytem. I would take it to your service provider or someone who has the equipment to do this like a ford or lincoln, mercury dealer.Have a good one!

Car died and won't start again. engine turns over but does not start


Is there a light that says "Theft System" blinking on your dashboard? That happened to me recently and I had to turn the key to the "ON" position, let it sit there like that for 10 minutes, the light went off, I took the key out, put it back in and the car started right away. Other than that, I really wouldn't know what is wrong with the car. Good luck.

When I get inside and try to start the car it won't start and the theft light on the dashbord just keeps blinking.


I don't know what type vehicle you have but it sounds like you theft deterent module is activated. Look in your owners manual and it should tell you the procedures for deactivating the theft deterent module. Last one I deactavated was a 2001 GMC, key "ON" key "OFF" key "ON" key "OFF" key "ON" and let sit for 20 minutes, then try to start the engine. Good luck, Gary
