Try taking off neg battery cable for 10 minutes. you can also try (foot on brake) put the key in & turn it on and off about 5 time quickly then remove the key. you might need to do it a few times.

SOURCE: Anti-theft

no way around this.the vehicle will not start without proper signal from pats key.if your using the same keys you always use there must be a problem with the passive antitheft system.but if you or someone else have attemped to start the vehicle with a key that is not programed to this vehicle the antitheft will kick in and you might have to have get your vehicle scanned and the keys reprogramed.you could try disconnecting the battery for at least 10 min this will clear the memory,then try to start.if still does not start there is a problem with antitheft.

SOURCE: 2000 ford windstar anti theft light flashing vehicle won't start

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

SOURCE: ANTI THEFT LIGHT KEEPS FLASHING ON AND OFF

Did you steal it? I heard about you thieves who steal cars then put new transmissions in!!
Seriously, try this, it may help...
Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward all the way just before cranking. Then within 5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the valet/overide button, found under the dash area, (push button, spring loaded) until the installed LED (the blinking light) in your dash area goes on solid, and the siren chirps once. (Your valet switch might be the toggle (on/off) type. in this case, key on, flip switch in opposite direction, then turn the key off.) This should reset the alarm, and reset the grounded relay on the starter wire, allowing you to start the engine. At this point, the only thing working would be the keyless entry from the alarm, if it came equipped that way. Just Repeat these steps to place it back to usable armed mode. You may get 2 chirps, confirming it, and the lights may flash twice as well. That should do it. Check out www.explorerforum.com

99 explorer alarm disables. Motor dies


Anti-theft system can keep vehicle from starting , Alarm is for vehicle content theft , open door without key alarm sounds (horns) ! PATS - passive anti theft system PATS enables and disables the engine from starting ,it will not cause the engine to die ! You have some other kind of problem ! If the vehicle engine doesn't turn over an red light on top of dash flashes fast ,then you have anti-theft system problem !
PATS differs from the perimeter anti-theft system in that PATS enables and disables the engine from starting. If equipped, the perimeter anti-theft system protects the perimeter of the vehicle (doors, hood and trunk) and sounds an alarm.

Bypassing anti theft on ford explorer


When i changed ignition on my 99 explorer i took the original key and taped it to the transponder receiver inside steering column. If u have it in the correct area u can use your new ignition and it will start without any programming hassle.. Also way cheaper to get other keys made!!

2000 ford explorer car starts while theft light flashing runs very rough starving for gas shuts off . changed the fuel already.


Theft light has something to do with the anti theft security system. I know that on GM vehicles, when the TRANSPONDER in the key does not give the correct signal or when the ignition reads the signal wrong, the computer will shut off the injectors or fuel pump. Sounds like this is your problem. THEFT light is an immobilizing problem. Thats why the truck wont run.

98 explorer will turn over but not start


Yes you have a problem with the theft system. Have you tried a different key? It has a transponder system.
