SOURCE: 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

My hyundai Accent 2010 will randomly not start until boosted/charged

you need to find out what is draining the battery, it could be the alarm or lights, with nothing being used and a fully charged battery the voltage at the batter should be around 12volts. you will need a volt meter to find out what is the voltage, when the engine is running the voltage at the battery should be between 13.85 and 14.volts, if the voltage is low at the battery when charged the problem is the battery, if the engine is running and its at 12-13 volts then there is a problem with the alternator. if all of these parts are fine then you need to remove fuses one at a time and check the voltage drop, when you find the fuse you need to check your log book or info on fuse box to find what that fuse controls. if you don't have fog lights then its not them dont know who told you that. it can also be a fault with the backup battery for the alarm these can fail over time and they drain the battery.

(1999 GMC Jimmy) i just installed pilot fog lights and had them wired to my parking lamp switch on the left side of my steering wheel. After i was driving for a little my gauge lights went off and the fog...

there is a fuse on the fuse box call ilumination, or cluster lights
that fuse is bad
it is also posible that you have no parking lights outside
remove the fog lights power from there you need to get power from the battery using a relay

Fog Lights stay on

Coincidentally, starting today, 6/22, my '04 Wrangler with 85K miles started having the same symptom. It's not the relay though. My lights will turn off if i press in on the fog light switch in the off position on the turn signal lever but when I release the pressure they come back on. I also pulled the fog light relay to shut off the lights. Unfortunately, I believe the only solution is to replace the turn signal lever.

Started with fog lights on cars a jump cause the battery was dead. just makes clicking sound from starter.

seems your battery has already been discharged by the fog lamp! recharge or buy a new one, but you should fix first the fog lamp before hooking your battery! check for stuck -up relay!

Electrical Problems

Do not leave the car in the garage without the battery disconnected until you locate the source of the smoke, the best tool to find the smoke's source is your nose, smell the area around the source of the smoke, if you smell a really nauseating smell you found it, then look for signs of burnt wires or burnt components, also look for any oil that may have caused the smoke, but I doubt that was the source, this sounds electrical. I know of no problems for your car that would cause this, so most likely it is not a common problem.
