It sounds like your anti theft may have gone out. your ignition reads the resistance of your key. if it matches the computer the car will turn on, if it doesnt the car will do what it is doing to you right now because it thinks you are using the wrong key. you may need to take it to someone with a scan tool and see if the computer can be reset.

Theft light is flashing and car died this morning after started to miss


The theft indicator on the instrument cluster will operate as follows:
• When the ignition is OFF, the theft indicator will flash briefly every two seconds to indicate the SecuriLock system is protecting your vehicle.
• When the ignition is turned to ON or START, the theft indicator will light for three seconds and then go out. If the theft indicator stays on for an extended period of time or flashes rapidly, have the system serviced by your dealership or a qualified technician.

Hope helps.

2001 Ford Taurus flashed theft light while driving and stalls. It does that intermittently. Starts fine.


IT WILL HAVE EITHER PASSIVE ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM (PATS) MODULE OR REMOTE ANTI-THEFT PERSONALITY (RAP) MODULE . REPLACE THE MODULE.

On start flashing theft light on 02 windstar


I just had this same thing happen with my Ford Taurus, and it turned out to be a bad key. The repair shop switched back and forth between two different keys we had with us 10 or 12 times, and it always started with the good key, never with the "bad" key. They said if the theft light is flashing quickly, that means the anti-theft system is engaging. If the anti-theft light just lights up, that is normal.
