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.

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

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.

2001 honda civic a green key displayed


The flashing green key icon when turning off your car? Ignition security system, requires chipped key to start. It's sort of like the GM and Ford flashing red light to announce the security system is active.

The click you are hearing is most likely the start slenoid making contact, however you should short the large wires @ the solenoid to make certain the starter still doesn't run, if so try tapping the starter with a hammer to shift the comutator a litle and try to start. Even if it now starts the starter will continue to give you problems so the proper fix is change 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.
