Can I put a non chip ignition in a 2000 f150 if I can't what do I need to do after I put chip key ignition in

You can't use a non chip key. You need to get it to a dealer for programming(some locksmiths can do it). Just a note, you need 2 keys for programming on Fords. Thing is you need to have the problem diagnosed. If you just lost the key. Take it to Ford. They can cut new keys for your truck and program them. Have the codes read. Receivers don't have to be reprogrammed. You could have a bad wire or plug. All the other computers have to be programmed.

2007 ford ranger truck don't know how to shut off antitheft device help

You most likely have a bad chip in your key. When the chip starts flaking out it will put the truck into anti theft mode as if someone else put the wrong key in it. One way that might work to reset this is to disconnect the battery for a few minutes. This will only get the anti theft to go off so you can try again. If your key causes it to activate again then you know it is the chip.

Key for my 1998 expedition has stopped working.

the chip in the key is bad. you can try reprogramming it. If you reprogram it you have to reprogram all keys at the same time. Typically when it quits working the chip is bad unless there have been some other electrical problems.

Anti theft system

The chip is in the key. Either the key has lost it's program or the transceiver is not recognising the key. Try another key if you have one.

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
