2005 Ford Taurus Key Problem.

You posted on my Question. Well I posted this as a comment.

"Ok. I just went out to the car and I put the key that doesn't work in the ignition to the ON position and the theft light flashes. I took that key out and put the one that works in to the ON position and the theft light stays on for a second and then goes out. Could that key have been "locked out" of the system."

Possible or the chip may have been removed from that key?? Did the alarm guy have that key when you installed the alarm??

    This is an original key from FORD correct?? If its an original key then the only other thing is if the key lost its program like some GM vehicle do after changing the battery on the car. Check and make sure its an original key from for and have it checked by the dealer. Good luck

Lost my ignition key for my 1996 Ford Tarus Wagon


You can probably go to a junkyard, and steal the tumbler out of another cars ignition, just make sure that you have the set of keys to go with it. As well, if your ignition key is for your locks as well, make sure that you take those tumblers out of the door because you'll need those as well.

Key Does Not Work


It could be that chip inside key just went bad. Do u have a 3rd key? That works? If so take the 2 good keys and turn the igntion to run postion for 3 secs each then do the same for the 3rd key and this will reprogram it if the chip is ok. If you do not have 2 good keys then u will have to have a scan tool that will link up with PATS system and perform security access to reprogram it.

Key Does not Work.


Ok, If it is the Factory Key, It should have the Plastic Finger grip at the Top. This Finger Grip has a Transponder Chip inside that Tells the Ignition that the Key is the Correct Key for this car, Go ahead and Start. These Transponders do Stop working Sometimes. If you will take the Key to the Dealer they can Reprogram the Key to work for you. But, It has to be the Factory key for this. If you have had a Key made, The key will not have the Chip inside it and will only work on the Doors. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

2001 ford taurus wont start and anti-theft light is blinking


Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

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
