Did you get the right steering column. Do you have an owners manual. may have to contact dealer and ask to talk with mechanics. Most dealerships will let you do that for free.

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

Try pulling the fuse for the anti theft system and starting. If the car starts normally, then the problem is with the theft system. The theft system will reset itself after a period of time.

SOURCE: car engine wont turn over

it sounds like either the key is going bad (chip inside) or the PAT's immobilizer system is not detecting a key is inserted with the correct code. If you remove the column surround you will see connectors just make sure all of these are secure, watch the yellow one do not disconnect it as its the airbag and theres a chance of it deploying.
Also try your spare ignition key if you have one.

If all is ok i'm afraid you may need to make a trip to ford for them to diagnose, the pat's system works well almost too well sometimes. i deal alot with them while installing remote starts and when they go wrong its almost always the dealer to resolve it. They have the computer software to test the system.
Sorry,

SOURCE: anti theft light blinks fast while cranking but

The ECM or "computer" Thinks that the car is being tampered with. Therefore it has temporarily disabled the engine. All of this is controlled by the sensor in the ignition switch. Either this sensor has failed or the connection is bad. Be careful who you take this to because if there not familiar with this then it will rack up a huge bill just in diagnosis alone. That's before you figure in the price of the switch. Hope this helps. Good luck.

What do u have to do to put new steering column in to make it crank


What year vehicle ? You have a starting problem ? no - crank - no start or cranks - an no start ? Anti-theft light on ? Replacing the steering column isn't going to do anything . Depending on the year an make there is a anti-theft module or transceiver behind where your stick your key in . Does your key have the transponder or as some call it (pellet ) in the head of key ? Some anti-theft systems disable fuel injectors an still others disable the starter .

Changed steering column with another one , everything comes on but wont start.


Did you put the original anti-theft module on the new steering column ? Does yours have steering column mounted ignition switch ? Vehicles with steering column mounted ignition switches have the exciter integral with the theft deterrent control module (VTD) which is located within the steering column.

Anti theft light blinking,dash lights up,windows roll up and down but car wont start. How do I start it?


If the anti theft light is blinking and you say that everything else fine.. My first thought is that the key is not programmed to the vehicle. The key has a internal chip that must be programmed to vehicle in order to start. Now my other question is, Is the key your using for the vehicle the original key or have you just recently had a key made? Regardless, in order for the yur Tribute to start, the key. Or keys have to be program to vehicle by your neighbor dealership. Thats the reason for your anti theft light is blinking

2004 jeep liberty won't turn over nor crank


The anti-theft system won't allow it to start . You replaced parts without knowing what would happen . The key has a transponder is the head of the key . The module that controls anti-theft doesn't see the transponder code an locked up the vehicle . Your best bet ,have it towed to a qualified repair shop . You don't have the tools or knowledge to fix it .

I changed the steering column now the air bag light and theft system light blinks and it will turn over but won't crank


The theft deterrent system does not recognize the lock cylinder and key you have changed. It must be reset by a dealer or locksmith.

What do i hve to do to get my car crunk it dont crank up


Check the operation of the security light in the dash. See if it is blinking or on solid with the key on. If the security light is on, then check the wiring running up the column to the back of the tumbler for being broken. This can be done with an ohmmeter hooked across the two little White wires at the connector at the base of the column. Stick the key in and see if it is getting a resistance value and then rotating the tumbler make sure that the resistance does not drop out.

Potential Causes:
Ignition Lock Tumbler
Pass-Key II Theft Deterrent Module
Broken Steering Column Wiring
