SOURCE: 2000 Mercury Sable theft lights

This is because of the security system going off of course. Chucky, you might want to disable the system. If not, you need to learn the code that resets the system. It may be in your owner manual but if not, you will need to contact the dealership. Make sure you have all your vehicle information because they will ask. There should be a fuse for it. If not, you would have to locate the wire.

Anti theft light won't go out


There are 2 things to try:
1) Use your key to manually unlock the driver's side door - sometimes this alone is enough to reset your security system.
2) Put your key in the ignition and turn to ON position (do not try to start the car, just turn to ON)- after 30 seconds, attempt to start the car and see if the security light goes out.

I have a 1996 sable car starts theft light starts blinking then shut itself off


Take your chipped key in your driver side door lock. Turn in left and then right then left again. This should get it out of valet mode unless there is a button on the bottom of the dash. Your vehicle seems to be in valet mode which is why it is shutting down on you.

Have a 1999 mercury sable that key wouldn't turn off ignition so had to pull fuel pump fuse..Fixed ignition switch and now when you turn on key lights on dash and theft lights come on but won't turn...


you may have to go to a lock smith because one of the tumblers on the key switch has dropped and it could have just been a bad switch I had a similar problem on an old aerostar and I ended up replacing the whole steer column and took it to a lock smith before I installed it so the keys matched
