    Hi, when you push the start/stop button does the engine turnover?

    does this happen when any of the keys are used or just one specific key?

Stop 2006 Ford crown vic fro m beeping


Austin Parker... hello,

When car electronics DECDE to act strangely... it is ALWAYS a good time to check for BATTERY TERMINAL corrosion...
(If you are not comfortable playing with highly corrosive materials... IT'S SERVICE STATION TIME.

So...
You have removed the key... The car is fully in PARK...
BRAKES applied... Lights all turned off... (no lights on dash?).

Repeat your last exit cycle...

Get back in start the car... Make sure everything functions as normal Set your brake... Park, off the lights (everything)...

Put it in gear...

Still beeping... (write down your radio settings)

Time to do a Bill Gates... (hard power cycle)
Disconnect your negative battery lead
and take a 10 minute break...

Reconnect battery... start car & park it again... OK?

ELSE...

If it resumes beeping it will be time to beg, borrow or buy that OBD Reader you always wanted any-way!

HOPE this helps

When i changed ignition on 2001 ford explorer I ended up having to replace steering column now it wont turn over & the anti theft light flashes & wont stop. what can be done to get car started?


At least you know the anti theft system is working. Jokes aside, I would think that the electronic security system is not recognising the new lock and steering column. You could try leaving the battery completely disconnected for at least 2 or 3 hours to see if the system resets. Reconnect the battery and then try again with the new key. You will have to put the security code back into your radio as well. If this doesn't work, it may need to go to a Dealer to reprogram your electronic system.

Everything is dead


Hi eyansdaddy,
Sounds like a bad connection on the battery , check the earth cable on the battery and the one that earths the engine to the bodywork (at the bottom of the engine) if there worn or frayed it can stop the engine from starting. all the best Scott

How to I disable the airbag on my 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac so I can change out the cruise control buttons?


Remove RCM fuse from dash panel fuse box. Fuse F2.10 10 amps. Turn key onfor 30 seconds and see that Air Bag light is lit. Now disconnect battery negative cable for 1 minute, leave disconnected while service is done. now the air bag is disabled. To repower the system turn key on, insert fuse. connect battery, now turn key off for 10 seconds, then turn key on and watch the air bag light. it should go on then after the air bag module is happy that everything is ok, it will turn off.
