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

How do I reset the ProLock system?


Hi Carol , do you mean PATS passive antitheft system ? Locked up your car ,do you mean it won't crank over an start ?
The passive anti-theft system uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a driveaway theft. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
  • During each vehicle start sequence, the ignition key identification code is requested by the vehicle protection anti-theft electronics.
  • If the key's ID code has been programmed into the system, the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) is signaled to enable the vehicle to start.
  • If the key's ID code is not programmed into the system, or if no encoded key is detected, then the powertrain control module is signaled to disable the vehicle.
The passive anti-theft system communicates the state of the security system to the powertrain control module via the J-1850 communications network data link connector (DLC). The powertrain control modulebased on the communications from the passive anti-theft system, will determine if the vehicle's engine is enabled to start. The passive anti-theft system differs from the active anti-theft alarm system in that the passive anti-theft system enables/disables the vehicle from starting and only operates with the ignition switch in RUN/START position. The active anti-theft alarm system has perimeter protection capabilities and operates only with the ignition switch OFF. Refer to Section 13-11A for active anti-theft alarm system information.
Vehicle Disabling The passive anti-theft system will be activated and disable the vehicle from starting if any of the following conditions exist:
  • damaged encoded key
  • unprogrammed key
  • non-encoded key (key has no electronics)
  • wiring concern
  • transceiver concern
  • Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) control module concern
  • J-1850 Communications Network concern
  • Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

Replaced the fuel pump. the car starts, but won't stay running


The anti-theft system will keep the car from being driven, so I would start there. You may need to reset the anti-theft or check the ignition key for problems.

I own a 2001 ford tarus i am having problems getting it to start its not the starter but i believe it is the anti theft system i have tried to over ride the sustem but it doesnt seem to be working any...


Is the theft light flashing when you are trying to start the car?? If not, then it is not the theft system. If it is the theft system keeping the car from starting, the car will crank, but will either start and run for a second or two, or just keep cranking and not start. If the car does not crank at all then it is the starter or the starter relay (these cars still had this). There is also a fusible link that could be the probelm and Fords also have a fuel cut button that i believe is in the trunk on this car. Give a description of exactly what the car is doing when you try to start it, and I should be able to help you better...

How to reset the anti theft swith and Where is it


Some possible solutions that might help: 1. I'm not sure if this model comes with a Master Ignition key (which is usually a different colour fob or shape). If it does, then try starting the car with the Master key, it should override and reset the antitheft system and allow the car to start. 2. The Alarm keyfob (if it has one) battery may need replacing. 3. There may be an override key operated switch on the alarm itself or secreted away somewhere inside the car, which you can use to activate/deactivate the antitheft device? 4. You may have to key a code number onto a set of buttons on the dashboard to reset the Antitheft device? 5. Do you have the User Manual for the vehicle. There should be some explanation in there about what precautions to take when replacing the vehicle battery, and how to reset the anti theft device so that the engine can be started again
