This is a problem with the alternator. Diode rectifiers and voltage regulator replacement will give this baby a 14.2 voltage output. In this 3L V6 SUV removal of the alternator requires removing the right tire, the right axis and undercovering to reach the 6G alternator. It is a 133mm rectifier with a motorcraft, The serpentine belt is better removed from the bottom. Also keep a bucket on hand to recover the oil from the transmission.

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

If you have key numbers on the door, you should enter the code, then immediately start the truck. If this does not work contact the dealer for a sequence to reset the alarm.

If you are reseting a factory alarm...lock and unlock the drivers door with the key. If you don't know the code look under the dash driver side in left corner there should be a black cover with a sticker with a code on it 6 numbers that is the factory code.

2004 mustang won't start because of anti theft system


Did you check the battery of the car (maybe loose cable)? but if it just happen suddenly, it might be your altenator that wasn't charging your battery. I think once there's enough power gone through the car then your anti-theft system should work as normal again.

2003 ford ranger theft light blinking and won't start


the anti-theft has been activated and needs to be reset.you may have to get it to a shop that has the tools to do this or go to the dealer to get it done.did you use a key that was cut as a spare and doesn`t have a chip in it.this usually can cause this.also if the wires at the switch break it can activate the anti-theft system.

Anti-theft indicator keeps flashing when the car is off. is this mormal functioning Ford Escape 2011?


Yes it flashes to let others know you have an alarm on the car and not to mess with it! Yes. It should blink when the key is not in the ignition. This lets you know that the Passive anti-theft system is on. What this means? Basically the key you use has a specific code that coordinates with your car, and that key is the only key that will work for your car out of a possible 70 quadrillion codes or something like that. The light is used to help scare away thiefs that would break into your car, no car alarm will go off if they do, but most run of the mill car thiefs wont take the chance of breaking into your car if they think there might be an alarm on it. If the light blinks while the key is in the ignition then you shouldn't be able to start the car. It's normal for it to always flash. The only time it won't is with the car running.
If this was helpful a vote with the thumbs up would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
