The easiest way to fix it would be to kill power to the remote device or pull the starter wire at the solenoid. You would have to reconnect the starter when you want to crank the engine.

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.

Air noise coming from brake booster on my 1997 ford taurus


You have a leak probably from the hose or fitting.You can find it with a can of starting fluid.Start the engine when cold, and spray it on the hose or fitting. If the engine rpm changes or sputters, you have found the place.Never check a hot engine this way,though. don-ohio

My 1997 ford taurus transmission slips when it shifts to second


this is caused by a piston in the transmission that has a crack in it once it warms up the crack seals and operates normally.being cold the crack opens up allowing fluid to flow past it. take to trans shop as soon as you can, will be minimum repair if it has not caused further damage in the transmission.
