Won't turnover, red car icon flashing

My wife got into our 2005 Ford Freestyle, turned the key, ignition clicked and then started flashing a red symbol with a car and lock. Then the lights outside and inside started flashing and clicking. Now the car won't start and she cannot lock/unlock the doors with the remote.

Hi

Take out the battery connnections for two minutes and then place it back. This will deactivate the alarm system which has been activated .

Thanks

Changed battery and now remote doesn't work. it is on a 2005 ford freestyle


press the helpful button,there appears there is more then one type of remote, I think one has auto start and one does not.

owners manuals in the glove box and in there was the Ford Auto Start Remote booklet. For those of you who need to program a new auto start remote, you turn the ignition to the on position, push and hold the little over-ride button (mine is down on the left side kick plate near the hood release) for about 15 seconds, you will hear a chirp which means the system is ready to be programmed, just hit the lock key on your remote and the system will chirp acknowledging the remote has been programmed, continue to do this will all other remotes you have within I believe it was 20 seconds - then shut off the ignition and test your remotes. Worked perfectly for me.

1. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the 8th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode.

2. Within 20 seconds press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.

3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will cycle again to confirm programming.

4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

Why is red light on dash with lock/key symbol flashing


Theftlock/passlock whatever ford calls it. It is their anti theft system. The system provides a link from the computer to the key itself where a chip tells it that it is indeed the correct key. If your key isn't working you likely need to do a pats relearn procedure. Guessing you lost all power or replaced a battery or a pcm

Theft light on on my 2005 for freestyle 4/4 6 cyl cant get out gear battery good lights come on radio comes on


It may just be a bad connection at the starter from the battery, or a bad starter. If it's clicking when you try to start it, then that's the problem.

No power in ignition...


If you have another set of keys with a FOB, try it. The anti-theft will reduce voltage to the starter to prevent thefts. If the anti-theft is not reading the key that is inserted, you will not get battery voltage to the starter.

2006 ford freestyle. lost power when driving. my wife almost got hit by a semi. started later and drove fine. no codes on after checked. throttle body?


Could be a TPS sensor. They may or may not code. But it also sounds like a loose connection. Also check for 5lb keyring in ignition switch.

You could see if Autozone or Oreillys will scan it, they do it free. Check to see if you are under warranty and make it dealers problem.
