Question about 2000 Ford Excursion

No start and Flashing Anti-Theft light

Recently My anti-Theft light started flashing and my car does not start. I thought it might be a problem with the chip in my key but I get the same problem with my spare key. My mechanic tried hooking up a diagnostic meter but could not read anything. He feels my ECU is bad. Anybody else had this problem?

Anti theft light blinking,dash lights up,windows roll up and down but car wont start. How do I start it?


If the anti theft light is blinking and you say that everything else fine.. My first thought is that the key is not programmed to the vehicle. The key has a internal chip that must be programmed to vehicle in order to start. Now my other question is, Is the key your using for the vehicle the original key or have you just recently had a key made? Regardless, in order for the yur Tribute to start, the key. Or keys have to be program to vehicle by your neighbor dealership. Thats the reason for your anti theft light is blinking

Cold morning car wont start


If the anti-theft light is flashing, turn the key to the On position and leave it there until the light stops flashing. Turn the key off, then try to start the car. The Anti-Theft system can get tripped for no reason and cause this exact problem.

Anti theft light is flashing rapidly and my car will not start Ford Mustang 2004 V6


you need to have your key reprogrammed. even a plain spare key will set off the alarm if it does not have a chip programmed with the same code as the anti theft system.

I am having the same issue with my anti-theft device in my 2003 Alero. Last year it stopped running and would not turn-over. $400 later, Brakemax said they just had to reset the anti-theft device. oK,...


the shop that told you they ripped it out only ripped you off unless they removed some aftermarket alarm system i,m a gm mechanic and if you remove the factory anti-theft on a 2003 olds alero it will not run ever again until re-installed make sure your battery is charged good turn igntion switch to run position but do not try to start security light should be flashing let car sit with switch on and light flashing for ten minutes light should stop flashing now start your car this is how to reset anti-theft was that worth $400.00 and again why let a bussiness named brakemax look at a no start condition keep on and you will be BROKE to the max HOPE THIS HELPS AND STAY AWAY FROM THEM YOUR FRIEND @ HELPMAX
