This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Explorer: Security system prevents car from starting.

Your ignition requires a radio signal from a chip inside your key to start the car . Your car wont start because you are using the wrong key, your ignition is no longer able to read the key (ignition replacement), or your key is malfunctioning.

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!

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.

2000 ford explorer car starts while theft light flashing runs very rough starving for gas shuts off . changed the fuel already.


Theft light has something to do with the anti theft security system. I know that on GM vehicles, when the TRANSPONDER in the key does not give the correct signal or when the ignition reads the signal wrong, the computer will shut off the injectors or fuel pump. Sounds like this is your problem. THEFT light is an immobilizing problem. Thats why the truck wont run.

Gas is showing half tank plus I added 2 gallons Spark is good and gas pressure is reading 40psi(normal). Everyone else's including my 2005 Chrysler Pacifica started. I need help. Did you find something out that may help?

Yes you have a problem with the theft system. Have you tried a different key? It has a transponder system.

1998 Explorer won't start


is the anti theft light flashing, the little red light on the center of the dash ? if the answer is yes then your key has been erased from the SUV's immobilizer and has to be reprogramed or replaced with another key that is then programmed into the vehicle's immobilizer. As long as that light flashes there is no way to start the vehicle.

What does anti-theft light do when this happens with the key in the on position.Does it come on for a sec then turn off or does it flash rapidly? If it is flashing then anti-theft is not seeing your key for some reason.This could be a bad key or a transponder for the anti-theft.
Second thing it could be is maybe computer isn't seeing the crankshaft position sensor. When you first turn on the ignition your check engine light should come on.It should go out while cranking but if vehicle doesn't start after a few seconds of cranking,while the engine is cranking it should come back on. If it does then computer sees the crankshaft position sensor.If it does not come on while cranking then it does not see it and it will not start.If this is the case you can try and wiggle the wires to the sensor(it will be located next to the front crankshaft pulley and it reads the teeth on the back of the crankshaft pulley.

I HAVE A 98 FORD EXPLORER THAT WILL ONLY START WIITH ONE OF TWO KEYS AND THEN ONLY SOMETIMES. COULD IT BE A PROBLEM WITH THE CHIP IN THE KEY COMMUNICATING WITH THE COMPUTERS ANTI-THEFT MODULE?


That's a very good posibility. If the anti-theft light flashes rapidly when you try to start the car with the suspect key, you will need to have a dealer program the keys. Good Luck and please leave rating.
